What: Christmas Market

Where: Ærøskøbing

The season is upon us and wherever you are in Denmark during December, chances are, you’re not too far from a Christmas market! If you’re getting married on beautiful Ærø island this winter, go check out their gorgeous Christmas market. 

What: Christmas Market and Art Exhibition

Where: Søbygaard

When: Saturday 16th December

See the twinkling lights, hear the festive music, sample the locally home made food and maybe, just maybe, catch a glimpse of Father Christmas! 😉 The Hunting Lodge will be exhibited with art, provided by the local art school! A lovely way to spend a few hours!

What: The Pixie Parade

Where: Søby

When: Saturday 23rd December

This lovely parade sees horse riders, a stagecoach and lots of little ‘pixies’ as they walk through the streets. The parade culminates by the Brugsen supermarket as Father Christmas will be handing out gifts for all the children while the parents and adults celebrate with a mulled wine!


What: Masquerade for Epiphany

Where: Søby & Bregninge

When: 5th – 7th January 2024

This is a very sweet and wonderful tradition in Bregninge and Søby on Ærø, where the locals dress up in masks making themselves unrecognisable to their neighbours. 

They will then walk the streets after the sun has gone down when they will knock on the doors of houses in the local area. They will be invited in for a drink where they will speak with their hosts in silly voices to disguise who they really are. The intention to confuse those they are speaking with, so they cannot be guessed. 

So, if you happen to be walking around in these areas on the first weekend in January, don’t be alarmed! You’ve simply stumbled upon the fun and niche celebrations, thoroughly enjoyed by all the locals involved in this lovely tradition.
