Spreading Festive Cheer on Beautiful Jersey

As the song goes, Christmas is “the most wonderful time of the year”. And it’s even more so when you are immersed in the festive cheer of the beautiful island of Jersey. The streets are filled with excited shoppers picking up Christmas gifts, and the smell of hot mulled wine and roasted chestnuts fills the cold winter air. Jersey goes that extra mile during the festive period, organising a number of markets, attractions and events each year for tourists and locals to enjoy.

La Fete de Noue is the annual Jersey Christmas Festival that takes place in St Helier. See the sparkling Christmas lights, enjoy the range of festive markets on offer, and experience the show-stopping Christmas Parade.

The Spirit of Christmas Market & The Advent Market


The Spirit of Christmas Market sees wooden huts lining the streets, each offering a selection of festive treats, and all accompanied by a variety of live music and street performers. And enjoy a hot mulled cider whilst you stroll around the Advent Market and see what’s on offer from its array of craft and gift stalls.

Christmas Parade


Join the ever-popular evening parade through the streets of St Helier and watch as the colourful floats light up the winter Jersey skies. The parade is accompanied by a festive playlist of songs, which is sure to get you in the mood for Christmas. Without a doubt this is a real highlight of the island’s Christmas celebrations, so wrap up warm and make sure you don’t miss out on this enchanting seasonal spectacle.

Joyeux Noël – Lé Marchi Nouormand


This is a traditional Norman /French market, which ties in perfectly with the French influences that are still very much apparent on the island. Sample a whole host of typical French cuisine, drinks, and gifts, and enjoy your evening out in the Jersey winter air
