The festive three-day market will run from Friday, December 15 from 10am to 9pm, Saturday, December 16 from 10am to 9pm and Sunday December 17 from 10am to 5pm.
More than 100 stalls are expected to fill the city centre streets with the colours, sounds and irresistible aromas of Christmas.
Stalls will be set up along Wulfruna Street, the Civic Centre Ceremonial car park, St Peter’s car park and the pedestrian area outside the University of Wolverhampton’s Ambika Paul building.
A Victorian funfair will be set up for visitors, whilst a variety of traditional and international street food, as well as home-baked goodies, bespoke Christmas decorations and holly wreaths, festive novelties and gifts, will also be on offer.
Entertainment will include street artists, choirs, vocalists, instrumental performances, chimney sweeps, dance displays, and Victorian themed stilt walkers.
Wolverhampton council cabinet member for city economy, councillor Steve Evans, said: “We anticipate this will be the largest festive market the city has seen.
“There will be a variety of stalls offering festive goodies, plenty of food and drink, and fun activities for families to enjoy at this special time of year.
“It is also the ideal opportunity to make a day of it and visit Wolverhampton’s attractions, range of independent retailers and High Street names, or take the weight of your feet and relax in one of the city’s cafes, pubs and restaurants.”
Director Dermot McGillicuddy, of LSD promotions who is organising the market, said: "This will be an exciting event for the city and we are proud to be working in partnership with the council to provide this special market at Christmas time.”
