The fair is held in the city’s Old Town district for about a month every summer.

One of the oldest written records of the event dates to the 16th century, when Papal Nuncio Giulio Ruggieri reported:

"The great St. Dominic's Fair gathers Germans, French, Flemish, English, Spaniards and Portuguese, with 400 ships in the port, laden with French and Spanish wines, silks, oil, lemons, marmalades and other Spanish produce, Portuguese spices, zinc and English broadcloth. Coming to the fair are also circus artists, acrobats and theatrical troupes, and various wonders have been shown, including mermaids..."

What will it be like this year?

Elżbieta Krajewska spoke to Paweł Orłowski, deputy CEO of the Gdańsk International Fair Company, which organizes the event.
