The Christmas Market takes place annually between late November and late December at Jack Poole Plaza in downtown Vancouver. It is a perfect place for holiday shopping, getting into the festive spirit while meeting friends and drinking mulled wine.
This popular holiday event bears an authentic German village atmosphere and offers a considerable selection of German and Austrian beers. Food delights include a variety of sweet and savoury specials that can be either local or European. It also features more than 75 artisan huts with souvenirs and crafts.
Holiday entertainment includes performances on the Flying Stage, a Christmas Carousel, live music, games with Christmas Market mascots “Holly and Jolly,” and a visit to Santa's residence.
