Winter Holidays at New Holland Island

On 21 December the traditional annual New Year's Market at New Holland Island will commence its work in the courtyard of the Bottle House and last until 8 January. Fourteen kiosks with gifts and food, along with street hearths and chairs will be gathered around an 8-meter New Year’s tree. Six more participants of the New Year's Market, as well as children's master classes Santa’s Little Helpers Workshops will be based in the Pavilion on the main walkway. On December 14, a New Year’s tree market will open next to the main entrance of the Bottle House and work until December 31.

This year the charity kiosk of the New Year's Market will again host New Year’s Post where anyone can leave a gift for people who found themselves in difficult life situations, but need the simplest things – support and care. The collection is organized for the wards of Nochlezhka, AdVita, Anton’s Right Here Foundation, the regional branch of Starost v radost, the Center for homeless animals Poteryashka. Donations will be delivered to wards by volunteers.

The entire territory of New Holland Island has been decorated for the opening of the New Year's Market: another large Nutcracker has been added to the Island and took its post at the Foundry, joining the other three Nutcrackers, guarding the entrances of the Bottle House. All pavilions are decorated with spruce garlands, there is a pyramid of giant New Year’s tree ornaments on the pontoon, and Moravian stars are lit on the trees. In the center of the Island there is a garlanded outdoor Ice Rink.

The programme of New Year's events will include performances of street orchestras in the Bottle House courtyard, The Nutcracker on the big screen, as well as children's New Year plays at and Children Talk space in Commandant’s House.

On the days of the New Year's Market, The Pavilion will again offer Santa’s Little Helpers Workshops organized by the P.T.H. Creative Manufacture. Here children from 6 years old with the assistance of Santa Claus’s little helpers will learn to make traditional New Year decorations of different countries — from Mexico to Japan.
