The Village of Elves and Fairies

Ice skating rink, entertainment, markets and eateries

From 8th December to 6th January

Imagine circling around an ice rink adorned with Christmas lights, immersed in a magical atmosphere. This is what you can do by visiting the Villaggio degli Elfi e delle Fate (The Village of Elves and Fairies) in Piazza Sartori from 8th December to 6th January.

In addition to skating on the ice, at the Village you can engage in many other different activities: buy handicrafts, peruse the typical local products available and listen to live music. There will also be places for enjoying the entertainment and refreshments, where you can rest and recharge after shopping and partaking in the activities!

The event is organised by the Associazione Water Ice Sport & Show in collaboration with the Associazione Arti Itineranti, uniting for the first time in offering a Christmas event in Padua, after having already individually contributed, respectively in 2017 (when Water Ice Sports & Show set up the ice skating rink in Piazzetta Amleto Sartori for the first time) and in 2015 (when Arti Itineranti offered its Christmas event in the same location).

Thanks to the collaboration between two associations, the Village of Elves and Fairies is an attraction rich in interesting components. In addition to the 20-by-10-metre ice skating rink, there will be the Bar delle Fate and the Bar degli Elfi, along with wooden cottages selling products made by various artisans, including ceramic and wood products, items made from working leather and glass-blowing, not to forget the artistic jewellery and perfumed soaps. Not to be missed in such a village is savouring the typical food products, made by small artisan producers, including olive oil, honey, jams, sweets, preserves and products in oil.

The Village will host also live music and shows. Here is the events calendar:
