Step into Christmas in Macclesfield!

Sat 20th November, 11am - 5pm

Join us in welcoming the festive season to town!

We are doing things a little differently this year to keep everyone safe but still bring you a fun packed festive start to the Christmas season! There will be no official switch on or countdown this year so no need to wait to come into town at switch at time, come in at any point during the day for lots of Christmas fun. There will also be no fireworks but there is so much to enjoy.

The day kicks off with the beautiful sounds of Macc Youth Brass Band at midday, around the tree.

Grab a mulled wine, enjoy the stage entertainment, visit Santa in his grotto and enjoy the Father Christmas parade at 3pm. Bring your little ones to the fairground rides and see if you can spot the naughty Christmas tree and the Victorian carol singers.

The entertainment runs from 11am until 5pm so come on into town to start your Christmas shopping and let us help you to Step into Christmas in Macclesfield.
