About Riverside Christmas Festival

The annual Christmas Festival returns to Riverside Museum promising festive fun for all the family!

Enjoy our traditional Christmas Market in the Victorian Street where you can get into the festive spirit as you browse the stalls for stocking fillers and unusual gifts.

Our event square will be transformed into a traditional fairground with FREE rides and carousels for all to enjoy!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Riverside Christmas Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
