If you live in Vancouver and want to get into the festive spirit, be sure to attend the Vancouver Christmas Market at Jack Poole Plaza in downtown Vancouver! Not only is it a great place to shop for gifts, but the entire family will enjoy the activities.

The Vancouver Christmas Market runs from November 21 to December 24, and there will be over 80 huts of authentic German sweets, treats and treasures. The market will be open from 11:30 am to 9:30 pm daily up until December 23 and it will be open until 6 pm on December 24.

Vancouver’s Christmas Market is an outdoor European-style market that offers the best of what the city has to offer. From great snacks to holiday window shopping, this is where you want to be sipping on mulled wine during December of 2018. There will be a towering walk-in Christmas tree that is decked out with over 36,000 twinkling lights, a sleek new hideaway called WunderBAR where merry mixologists will tantalize your taste buds with seasonal offerings and a Christmas Carousel for the young and the young at heart.

If you are looking for a particularly special experience, book a magical flight across Canada from the market’s website. Couples can savour warm drinks and share sweet treats together as part of the Deluxe Date Night on Wednesday, December 5, and be sure to bring your kids to Kids Day on 1 December, where children will enjoy free arts and crafts, a market-wide scavenger hunt and a variety of kid-friendly fun. On Tuesday, November 27 and December 4, foodies are invited to take full advantage of the smaller portions with lower prices with Foodie Tuesdays. Participating vendors throughout the market will be offering exclusive discounts and trial-size tastes so you can curate your very own festive food tour.
