As many as 650 stalls with goods from 12 countries will be placed this year in the historic center of Gdańsk as part of the 760th edition of St Dominic’s Fair.
St. Dominic’s Fair is the largest open-air trade and cultural event in Poland and one of the largest such events in Europe. It has enjoyed over seven hundred fifty years of tradition – it was established by Pope Alexander IV in 1260, according to the event’s website.
The organization of this year's fair was announced on July 14 at a press conference. The event will start on July 25 and will last until August 16. Aleksandra Dulkiewicz, mayor of Gdańsk, who was present at the conference, explained that the decision to organize this year’s edition of the fair was preceded by “difficult” talks due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
