The Doué-la-Fontaine Christmas Market is the unmissable event at the end of the year! Every year, on the first weekend of December, people flock to the troglodyte cellars of the Arènes to discover the fabulous decoration designed for the occasion and to do their shopping for the holidays.

Many exhibitors

At the heart of the troglodyte arenas, this event attracts every year a captivated audience who comes to discover the scenography of the cellars and more than 70 exhibitors delighted to present their creations in an unusual site. Find a multitude of regional and artisanal products!

A magical atmosphere

What would the traditional Doué Christmas market be without its breathtaking activities and scenography? For three years, the Sensorielle agency has immersed us in a wonderful world where young and old alike rediscover the magic of Christmas. Throughout the day, find music groups with the participation of Los Percutos, a fiery collective bringing together around thirty percussionists, an accordionist, a show on stilts, balloon sculptures and the unmissable visit from Santa Claus.
