The 4th annual Vancouver Christmas Market opens on Friday, November 22, 2013 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza. Filled with the old-world charm of traditional German Christmas markets, the Vancouver Christmas Market offers unique gifts, handcrafted ornaments, live music, sweet and savoury snacks, and over 45 exhibitors in wooden huts decorated in thousands of twinkling lights.
The sights and smells of the festive season culminate with cheer in the outdoor plaza as you stroll along with a cup of mulled wine, shop for gifts, and listen to carols.
For the price of any paid admission again this year, visitors will be given a free Season’s Pass so they can enjoy the Market time and again throughout the 33-day event. You can also come early on weekdays to beat the crowds and enjoy 2-for-1 lunch admission, making the Market the perfect place to grab a delicious midday meal with colleagues and friends.

Admission is $6 for adults (13+) Monday to Friday from 4:00pm to 9:00pm and weekends from 11:00am to 9:00pm. Adult admission is $3 Monday to Friday from 11:00am to 4:00pm.
