Is the gloomy weather dampening your festive spirit? Are you longingly waiting for the holidays to start? Have no fear, the Vancouver Christmas Market is returning for its 7th year! Back and better than ever, this year the market has moved to a larger venue at the Jack Poole Plaza, site of the Olympic cauldron and conveniently situated near the Waterfront area. With even more space that means that there will be even more vendors and activities to browse through and enjoy! Where else would you find authentic Hungarian Chimney Cakes, Steins (traditional German beer mugs made out of stoneware), artisanal crafts, and even a Christmas carousel?
German Christmas markets have existed for centuries and are also known as Christkindlmarkts, this is your chance to experience tradition and culture. As a time for celebration, food, drinks and gifts, this is the perfect holiday getaway right here in our beautiful city. If you’re looking for some holiday fun, a sweet date night or an opportunity to create new family memories head down to the Vancouver Christmas Market to bathe in Christmas cheer – and maybe even meet Santa!
While planning your excursion to the market, we do recommend purchasing tickets online to save some time. Besides the regular admission rates for adults, seniors, and youths, there are also 3 packages to choose from if you wish. Their packages range from $20-$50 and include carousel rides, treats, and collectors mugs! Click here for more information on the Vancouver Christmas Market.
