The first edition of the Christmas Market of Trento was held in Piazza Fiera from 15 to 24 December 1993, with 22 exhibitors. The event was organized by Centro Trentino Esposizioni, which later became Trento Fiere Spa. The first edition was called "Christmas Market". The location chosen was Piazza Fiera, a traditional place used for trading by local people. The aim of the first edition was just to offer gift ideas to decorate and celebrate Christmas.
Some exhibitors that have taken part in all the editions have become historical.
