To ensure crowd safety, road closures (Main Street) will take effect from 3.30pm until 6pm – please leave sufficient time to park and walk to the Santa Parade.

Children must be accompanied by a parent / guardians at all times and we ask the public to please adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Santa Parade / Christmas Lights 2021 is brought to you by Wicklow Town & District Chamber of Commerce and Wicklow Municipal District.

We are also delighted to announce that the Wicklow Christmas Market 2021 is back again and better than last year. This year they are delighted to launch the New Eco Ice Rink as part of the Wicklow Christmas Market Experience.

This exciting event is new to the Wicklow Christmas Market and will take place at Leitrim Place, The Murrough Wicklow Town.

The Market is FREE to the public, and offers food, activities and entertainment for everyone in the family. Start your Christmas shopping, visit Santa and spend the day enjoying the sights and sounds of Christmas.

Located within the Wicklow Christmas Market is the Santa Express, an interactive opportunity to take a magical trip to the North Pole and to Santa’s house. Families will travel in their own train car with Oribel, Santa’s head elf, as the conductor. Once at the North Pole, families will be entertained by the mischievous Elf and Safety and Mrs. Claus. Then of course, there will be the chance to get to visit with Santa Claus himself, take a picture with Santa, and post a letter at Santa’s official post box.

*A sensory Santa experience will be offered on the 3rd of December, and 10th of December from 10:00am-12:00 pm, where the sights and sounds will be toned down and calmer, yet still include all of the fun and festivities of the Santa Express.
