Røros Market


A Royal Decree of 1853 states: "Beginning in 1854 there shall be a market in Røros beginning on the next-to-last Tuesday in the month of February, and lasting until the following Friday". Since then the Røros Market has taken place every year. Today the market is a combination of the old and the new. Some exhibitors and vendors come from a long way off, travelling by horse and sleigh. 150-200 vendors and exhibitors and 70,000 to 80,000 visitors find their way to Røros in February, and the town is full of fun and dancing both day and night.
