Prague Easter Markets in 2020 – All the info you need!

The final date of the 2019 Christmas markets in Prague was on January 6th in 2020. But, people are already hungry for more, and that is why they are getting ready to visit Prague for the annual Easter markets in 2020. But, when will the Easter Markets be arranged in 2020?

The annual Easter market in Prague is located at the Old Town Square in the heart of Prague. This is a square impossible to miss, and it is packed with stands and people during festivals and events such as the Easter market. In fact, it is totally crowded in the evenings, so you do not have to worry about spending your time in Prague alone if you go to visit the Easter market.

At the Easter market, you can taste all sorts of local brew and local food. This is a perfect place to get to know the local gastronomy of the Czech people, and also to buy souvenirs and hand-made products.

But, once again – when will the Easter market be arranged in 2020?

Prague Easter market dates in 2020

The Easter market at the Old Town Square

  • The Easter market will open on March 28th, 2020 – Saturday
  • The Easter market will close on April 19th, 2020 – Sunday

  • The Easter market will close on April 13th, 2020 – Monday

These are the most famous and popular Easter markets in Prague that you should visit in 2020.

I guess you should order your flight ticket immediately. It is also wise to plan ahead and book your Vltava river cruise, a local beer dinner, and airport transfers well ahead, just to make sure that you will be able to enjoy all the programs you intend to partake in during your stay.

What about the Christmas markets in 2020?

We don’t know much about the Christmas markets in Prague in 2020 yet, but our guess is that they will open on November 28th and remain open until January 6th. But, this is just a wild guess (based on our experience from the most recent years), so you should not buy your flight ticket already. Or, you can buy your flight ticket, but if you want to be 100% sure, then you shouldn’t arrive to Prague before December 5th (by then the market will for sure be open).

Why was the Czech Beer Festival canceled in 2019?

One of the biggest and most popular festivals in Prague is the Czech Beer Festival. This has been an event lasting for 2 1/2 week every year in Prague, and it has brought tens of thousands of people to the city. It has also been listed as one of the top 40 festivals to experience in Europe and it has been featured in Lonely Planet and other travel magazines. So, why was the Czech Beer festival canceled in 2019?

There was quite a lot of information available about the cancelation to those who understand the Czech language, but if you don’t, you have probably had a hard time finding information about what happened in 2019, and whether or not it will influence the beer festival in 2020 or not.

Information about the Czech Beer Festival 2017

So, what happened with the Beer Festival in 2019?

The answer can be found in a blog post posted in January 2019, written by the creator and mastermind behind the festival, In the post, she wrote something as follows:


“I am sorry that I have to write it, but I decided to cancel the Czech Beer Festival 2019 after careful consideration.

Prague 7 City District has long disagreed with the festival on Letna Plain and last week the festival was rejected by the new management of the City of Prague. I cannot or do not want to organize the festival again without the support of these two institutions.

When I started the festival, I had a clear idea where to go and what it was. My goal was to build a unique event, which will be the annual holiday of Czech beer. Because, as one of the festival visitors once told me:

„There is only one word you need to know in Czech… BEER!“

Beer is not a rich alcohol that produces drunks and educates alcoholics. It is our tradition (however it has been abused and distorted for years), our legacy. It is a cultural drink that determines our country so much. Thousands of Czechs take care of his cooking and tens of thousands, perhaps more, take care of him. And they all do it with love and the belief that beer is much more.

That’s why we drew beer in glasses (including the tasting ones), that’s why there was never a single plastic cup at the festival, so we stored the cask in cool containers, so we worked with great Czech breweries of all sizes, flying breweries and even home owners The festival was visited by hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the Czech Republic and around the world. That is why a visit to the Czech Beer Festival is recommended by the famous Lonely Planet travel guide. Because this festival is (was) something more.

I thank all visitors, fans and supporters of the festival, all breweries and other partners for the beautiful years, for all the little things and nice memories!”


So, it has been a matter of politics, about noise, about acceptance from the local government and the neighborhood… and it seems like she (YES, the main organizer is a SHE) got tired and fed up with it. And, she would rather cancel it, than to create an event somewhere else that is very different from the picture and dream she had on her inside.

This article will be updated once again when we get the dates for the Oktoberfest in Prague in 2020!

It is completely free to visit the Oktoberfest area in Prague and it is open on October 2nd and October 3rd from 8.00 till 20.00 every single day. I guess the fact that it will close at 20.00 every day is one of the biggest differences from the festival in München, but I guess we will have to live with that.
