‪Every year, Montecasino brings the festive spirit with their annual Christmas village. This year’s edition is the fourth of its kind and is expected to be bigger and better than ever before. The market is filled with a bountiful array of eats, treats, champagne, craft beer, decorations, ornaments, arts and crafts, handmade toys, crackers, jewellery, clothes, gifts, gingerbread houses, a photographer, and a lot more, all carefully selected to reflect the spirit of the season and guarantee something for everyone in the family.

The market is one of my must-do activities of the festive season and is the place to shop for the perfect gift and Christmas décor, taste the best of Christmas fare, and soak up the enchanting sights, sounds, and atmosphere of the ever-popular Village. The variety of stalls are incredible and the wooden cabin-like aesthetic each stall has screams Christmas. There is also a kids section which ensures the little ones are just as entertained as you are. The Montecasino piazza will also be celebrating their brand new big screen with animated movies for the kids at 6pm every day except Sunday at 4pm – Frozen will be screened on Wednesday, Sing on Thursday, Trolls on Friday, Moana on Saturday, and Finding Dory on Sunday!

The Montecasino Christmas Village, which over four years has earned a reputation for excellent quality goods, stunning displays, and great entertainment all round, takes place from Wednesday 29 November to Sunday 3 December, from 4pm to 9pm on the first two days, from 2pm to 9pm on Friday, from 12 noon to 9pm on Saturday, and from 10am to 6pm on Sunday.

Mike Page, GM of Montecasino, says, “Montecasino prides itself on creating fun and exciting experiences for our customers, but during the Christmas Village, it just lights up with the joy and enchantment of Christmas – and is an experience that many visitors look forward to, year after year. Each year the participating exhibitors seem to get more enthusiastic and creative with their stall displays and products. This year promises to be the best yet, with 58 handpicked businesses showcasing a lovely range of Christmas products and gifting, along with a variety of food stalls. The Christmas Village is a great opportunity for us to give Gauteng residents a wonderfully authentic Christmas experience – and we look forward to welcoming all our visitors to this delightful event.”

Every year, the Montecasino Christmas Village proves to be one of the most exciting festive activities and we can’t wait to see what the complex has in store for us this year.
