Christmas markets, a possible return to normal?

Since the start of the Covid-19 epidemic, the magic of Christmas has worn off somewhat. In Nancy, the Christmas markets usually present on Place Charles III and Place Vaudémont were suspended last year. This period left a taste of bitterness among the people of Nancy.

Jérôme Espiand is a 50-year-old Nancy manager and organizer of a chalet complex on Place Vaudémont and Place Carrière in the city center. He tells us about his projections and his goals for the next Christmas period. After the cancellation of the winter cultural events last year, the consequences are visible: Jérôme Espiand tells us about a real “sharp loss of activity. Despite everything, the team remains hopeful: “We all hope to come back this year and at all costs,” he confides. For this, the seasonal workers have planned a new organization and better anticipation of the festivities. Finally, new elements must be taken into account, such as the “fearful spirit of visitors” in order to ensure that the events run smoothly.

2021 expectations

This year Jérôme hopes above all to “make up for the lost year” and “satisfy his teams” as best as possible. Customers can find many traditional food products in themed chalets such as sweet, savory, Italian, Creole, cocktails etc. usually present in years past.

Even if seasonal workers no longer have to wear the mask, it remains with the compulsory health pass for visitors during the festivities. See you on November 19, 2021 on Charles III and Vaudémont squares!
