Place of event
Českobudějovice square is filled with wooden stalls with Christmas products, the air smells hot punch and music with another rich program. Enjoy an open ice rink. A whole host of hand-held hands will be seen right in the open craft stalls, which will alternate throughout the advent market as it did last year. There will be an assortment of ceramics, advent wreaths, wooden toys, hand-blown glass, Christmas candles, Christmas hand decorations and more. Those who want to have a glass of wine, even those who want to buy Christmas presents, will be satisfied.
Visitors to Českobudějovický Advent will enjoy even more performances this year than last year and the evening program will be longer and the concerts will take place until 21:30.
The festive lighting of the Christmas tree - December 1 exactly at 16:30. This year's Christmas tree grew up on Good Water near České Budějovice and was donated by the Horejš family. This is an ornamental Korean meal. The height of the tree is about 12 meters.
The arrival of an angel is traditionally on December 5th. The angel flees from the Black Tower exactly at 17:45. The giant puppets passing the square will be replaced by a composite program of local musicians with the unusual instrument composition of the chimes, marimba and vibraphone who together with the musical singers and soloists of the South Bohemian Philharmonic Orchestra will play Czech and world Christmas songs.
This year's adventure of Českobudějovický Adventure gives above-standard space to local artists. In addition to the well-known Christmas programs such as Fools, Spolektiv or Epydemy, many adventurous novices such as McBerds, Strong Coffee, The Greens or Honza Janda, a street musician known for his guitar playing at a Krajinská Street bank, will perform. Lovers of Christmas songs, folk, pop, jazz, rock and folk and historical music will love it. From Tuesday to Friday, from 15:00, the choirs of elementary and secondary schools in České Budějovice will compete at the Podium Hall of Fame project. The weekend early afternoon will traditionally include children for whom puppet theaters or an advent cinema are ready, and they can also visit Jesus' Workshop every day from Saturday to Friday. Complete program of Českobudějovický advent can be found at www.ceskobudejovickyadvent.cz
NOVELTY. A new feature of this year's observation tower is the observation tower next to the ice rink. On the top floor of the tower there will be shelves where people can enjoy Christmas treats with bird's eye view of the entire Advent town and it will be the perfect place for a beautiful photo to commemorate.
SELLERS. There will be a number of vendors who will be presenting their handicrafts on craft stalls and not only there. We also managed to place craftsmen who you can visit throughout the advent in wooden booths. You can now enjoy carved wooden toys, handmade soaps, essential oils, herbs, special leather products, blown glass, Christmas decorations and decorations, and more.
Those who like to dine and like traditional food will be satisfied. Grilled specialties, fish, almonds, cheeses, koblížky, pancakes, waffles, sweets etc ... Insects of all sorts, punch of all scents and recipes, mulled wine, mead and also breweries will be an integral part. Budweiser Budvar offers a special beer brewery and a Samson lager brewery awarded with a prestigious award.
One of the booths in the market will not have a permanent owner. There are several schools set up by the South Bohemian Region that will present their school activities. Some of the schools will sell their products and offer them for sale, such as the Bechyně Secondary School of Applied Arts. In cooperation with the Culture and Tourism Department of the City of České Budějovice, space for the presentation of non-profit or socially oriented organizations was also extended to help disadvantaged groups of the city's inhabitants and the surrounding area. Employees and representatives of these organizations and South Bohemian children's homes will take advantage of the opportunity to introduce their products in stalls in Advent markets for several days, even weeks. By purchasing these products, you will contribute to improving the budget of contributory organizations that welcome every help.
