During my staying in Gdansk we visited Saint Dominic Fair.
The oldest and most important event that takes place in Gdansk is the Dominican Fair , which dates back to 1260, when the local Dominican monks received the papal privilege of holding a fair on the feast day of their saint. The fair was initially held on Plac Dominikański, the square next to St Nicholas’ Church, but today it takes up 6000 sq metres of the Main Town for three weeks from the last Saturday of July. There’s no shortage of tacky crap on offer, but you’ll still find plenty of antiques, bric-a-brac and craft items. The fair is accompanied by various cultural events, including street theatre, concerts, races and parades.
