I love the Vancouver Christmas Market, it’s festive, it’s romantic, it’s got great food and gift ideas, and it’s an affordable, family holiday activity! This year the 2017 Christmas Market is open from Nov. 22 to Dec. 23 daily from 11am to 9pm, and on Dec 24 from 11am to 6pm.
Colourful décor. Authentic gifts. Family entertainment. Tasty authentic food. The aroma of mulled wine. A truly enchanting atmosphere. Mmm… tasty winter food. 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!
This Vancouver holiday tradition if for locals and visitors alike, the Vancouver Christmas Market features more than 75 huts of authentic, German sweets, treats, and treasures. The signature yuletide celebration returns for 2017 to its expansive seaside site at Jack Poole Plaza ~ home of the Olympic Cauldron.
The artisans and travellers who open shop in the Market come from Germany, Poland, and all over Europe each year to spend a warm Vancouver Christmas with us. They are guest to Vancouver and often are talkative and curious about our city.
This authentic German Christmas Market creates the perfect atmosphere to mix and mingle with friends and family, take in a quick drink after work or business lunch, and take in a wide variety of cultural activities and entertainment events.
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!
TIP: Go there hungry! Expect to find fantastic German Bratwurst, rotisserie pork shank, tasty Spätzle, warm German pretzels, German schnitzel, Glühwein, hot chocolate, and Schnappsl Kaffee, and loads of sweets!
