After a one-year hiatus, the Vancouver Christmas Market returns to its seaside home at Jack Poole Plaza (downtown at the Olympic Cauldron). Vancouver’s largest and longest-running Christmas Market – and only European Christmas Market – invites families and friends to reconnect and celebrate the spirit of the holiday season with an expanded six-week schedule from November 13th to December 24th. To help spread the cheer, the German-style Vancouver Christmas Market is releasing a limited number of reduced-price tickets for guests to purchase by October 31st. Pre-sale tickets are now on sale and can be purchased online.

According to a centuries-old tradition, many German towns host Christkindlmarkts in December; each one is unique, featuring local artisans and festive regional refreshments. Residents take the opportunity to enjoy each other’s company, sample local delicacies, shop for gifts, and share holiday cheer.

Each year, the Vancouver Christmas Market brings this festive Old World tradition to Vancouver. This cherished holiday event offers an authentic German feast for the senses. Stroll the twinkling pathways of a European-inspired Christmas village in the crisp winter air.

Discover unique treasures to stuff into stockings or tuck under the Christmas tree at one of the more than 80 artisan huts offering handcrafted gifts for everyone on your list. Festive foodies can sample Glühwein (mulled wine), a selection of German and Austrian beers, and a variety of sweet and savoury epicurean delights.

Get into the holiday spirit with our lively line-up of holiday entertainment, performing on the Flying Stage from Vancouver’s only Christmas Pyramid. Kids will love riding the Christmas Carousel, embarking on a market-wide scavenger hunt, and frolicking with Vancouver Christmas Market mascots “Holly and Jolly,” as well as meeting Santa himself.

Combining colourful décor, authentic gifts, enticing food and drink, and family entertainment, this Yuletide celebration creates the perfect atmosphere to mix and mingle with friends and family, have a quick drink after work, find a festive photo op, and take in a wide variety of holiday entertainment!
