- White Fair
"White fair" is a winter fairy tale on the main square of Krasnoyarsk. These are slides, a skating rink, carousels, dozens of houses with gifts, gingerbread cookies, fireplaces, many, many garlands and 100,000 happy guests. This year it will run from December 20 to January 12. For 23 days on the main square of Krasnoyarsk you can buy gifts, farm products for the New Year's table and spend time at dozens of venues.
At the entrance to the fair, the organizers will build a forest of cedars with fairytale animals. After passing through it, guests will find themselves in the fairground village. It will be possible to buy gifts for loved ones (from jewelry to blankets, from chocolate with lingonberries to collector socks) in the houses. There is also a food court. In addition to the usual pilaf, pancakes and kebabs, this year you can try the soup of the day in a glass (every day there is a new soup from a new country) and dumplings with shrimp and venison. You can also buy caviar and red fish.
The official fan zone of the Russian Figure Skating Championship will work at the White Fair. The championship will be held in Krasnoyarsk from December 26 to 29 at the Platinum Arena, and on Theater Square you will be able to watch the competitions on the big screen, communicate with the Olympians and skate on the rink yourself. By the way, a separate musical program with gold hits of the last 50 years is being ppared for the rink.
For the first time, two stages will work at the White Fair. Every hour there will be a new concert, meetings with Ded Moroz, warming exercises, selfie sessions with famous athletes.
Traditionally, the most visited days of the fair are the opening and New Year's Eve itself. On December 20, at the opening, the organizers promise fireworks, a performance by the Krasnoyarsk brass band and a special broadcast on the Prima channel (guests of the fair will send their greetings to their loved ones live on air). There will be an opportunity for the most devoted fans of "White fair" to watch the holiday from the roof of the City Administration. Only 20 people will get on a tour under the clock tower. How to become one of them? Details are coming soon on the Gorod Prima website.
On December 31, thousands of Krasnoyarsk residents will celebrate the New Year with the President's speech from the big screen and a special concert program.
On the days of the fair, all car entrances
to Theater Square will be closed. Therefore, it is better to use public transport
or a taxi (bus stop "Theater of Opera and Ballet"). There will be a
huge free parking near Theater Square (entrance from Dubrovinsky st.).
