One more year, Christmas comes to Teià!

Christmas is just around the corner! That magical and unique time of year with which we say farewell to the year, and in which we live happy moments with our loved ones such as enjoying a good meal by the fireplace, decorating our home with a Christmas Nativity manger, setting up the typical fir tree with its garlands, wrapping gifts…

Another enjoyable thing to do during this time of the year is to put on warm clothes and go visit one of the many Christmas Fairs & Markets that in these cold weeks occupy the squares and streets of our towns, where we can find a wide variety of decoration items, nice presents and delicious gastronomic products typical of Christmas. Or we can simply getting into the Christmas spirit while taking a relaxing walk.

In the town of Teià, the programming will develop around two main events:

Christmas Market

Saturday 16 & Sunday 17 December

The Teià Christmas Market will open on Saturday, December 16 at 11:00 a.m., with around twenty stalls. At 11:30 a.m. a cooking workshop will take place, led by Maresme Circular.
