Moudon - Manifestations
The Moudon Christmas market is also the opportunity to celebrate Saint Nicolas Day. This cousin of Father Christmas offers well-behaved children sweets at Salle de la Douane on the second weekend of Advent. A circus, sled dogs and donkeys are also part of the programme.
During this Christmas market, the medieval town of Moudon opens its doors to the traditions of its Catholic neighbours by inviting Saint Nicolas. Like Father Christmas, this bearded, benevolent man descends from Heaven to reward well-behaved children with a few seasonal treats. For his visit in Moudon, he is accompanied by a donkey and sled dogs that will delight children and animal fans.
Comfortably installed in Salle de la Douane, some forty artisans and their original creations provide the opportunity to complete one’s last Christmas gift purchases. A circus for the little ones and mulled wine for the grown-ups: this December weekend will really mark the arrival of the Christmas holiday season in Moudon!
