Bright decorations in red and green, creative design gifts, workshops, entertaining music in the background, panels with experts, constant flow of art, delicacies, and endless fun— Fişekhane has begun its New Year preparations full of art, design, and entertainment.

A city is getting ready for a new year. Streets are illuminated with new hopes and excitements. Fişekhane, where historical heritage comes alive through the spirit of the district, has already donned all the glamorous colours of the city. Home to art and gastronomy meetings as an attraction centre for a long time, Fişekhane is filled with a special atmosphere these days. Streets are livelier as the spirit of New Year paints the district in another hue. While swing, jazz, and Latin melodies permeate Fişekhane, creative designs have already claimed their place at the booths. The renewed energy of 2022 will spread across Istanbul from Fişekhane as of December 17. How fast time flies… How would you like to stop time at Fişekhane before greeting the new year? Forget about your daily rush or deadlines. Take out a pen and paper and write down what you want and what you’ve been postponing. This is the right place to begin 2022 with a new list. Accompanied by the sea on one side and history on the other, you’re surrounded by unique architecture and art. What more could you want?

The New Year’s events will begin with Art Shop Fest (held on December 17, 18, and 19) and continue at full speed with Iconic Look New Year Fest between December 25 and 30.
