It is one of the largest and oldest fairs in Europe with more than 760 years of history. It lasts for 3 weeks. In 2023 the Fair’s will last from the 23th of July til 13th August 2023. The St Dominic’s Fair in Gdansk is located in the streets of the Old Town. Opening time for visitors is from early morning till late night.
During St. Dominic’s Fair you can stroll around among over 600 stalls. Most of them are offering for instance crafts, ceramics, jewelry, antiques and even old vinyls and comic books. You can taste a great variety of regional delicacies from Poland, Lithuania, Hungary and other European countries. Every year you can meet great number of local producers of cheeses and wines. It is one of a very few places in the world where you can taste the wines from Poland.
Because of most stalls are placed on streets, many streets in Gdansk Old Town are are impassable. That’s why it is more difficult to get by taxi to some hotels located in Old Town. In some cases it is almost impossible. For this reason I have to change pick up points for visitor who are booking one of my trips by bus in this time.
St. Dominic’s Fair is the largest open-air trade and cultural event in Poland. It is one of the largest such events in Europe.
The fair attractions include also a rich program of cultural events as: The Gdansk Shakespeare Festival, organ recitals in historical churches and pop concerts. The selection is so large that it is simply not possible to participate in all cultural events organized during the fair. In addition, during weekends, you can watch spectacular shows as well.
St Dominic’s Fair in Gdansk is without doubt a major attraction for collectors and people who love boisterous atmosphere. If you like tasting regional food products, feel free to join us.
