The Vancouver Christmas Market from November 22 to December 24, 2013 on the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza!
The Vancouver Christmas Market is a little bit of Traditional European Christmas Holiday Season in Vancouver. If you haven’t been, its at least worth visiting once. I like to visit once every year, take in the festive decorations, and get into the spirit!
Traditional German Christmas Drinks and Foods
Go hungry and in need of cheer, and find Gluehwein, a traditional hot spiced cider, the savory smell of pork roasting or bratwursts on the grill, cheesy Swiss Raclette, tasty sweet stollen cakes and caramel apple Bratapfel or Apfelstrudel, and enjoy the sparkling twinkling lights and sights of christmas, with the sounds of carollers and quartets in the air.
Travel to Germany Without Leaving Vancouver
Over 45 traditional vendors with many coming from Germany.
‘The Vancouver Christmas Market, located on the Plaza at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, is guaranteed to get you in the festive mood! Stroll through the festively decorated outdoor Christmas village and be treated to row upon row of illuminated wooden huts offering handmade gifts and tempting treats. Listen to the sounds of bells, trumpeters and carolers. As day becomes night, thousands of Christmas lights sparkle and delicious aromas of mulled wine and spicy gingerbread waft through the air.’ – from Vancouver Christmas Market website.
Great Fun for the Kids and Special Events
The market is home to downtown Vancouver’s first and only Christmas Carousel, a must see attraction for kids and adults.
Tips: It can get crowded at night! Go earlier in the day if you have small children or want a bit more room to roam.
