The 5th annual Vancouver Christmas Market opens on Saturday, November 22, 2014 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza in Downtown Vancouver. This slice of European holiday cheer hosts 50 unique vendors and a variety of themed activities through to Wednesday, December 24, 2014.
Vancouver Christmas Market
Take a spin on Vancouver’s only Christmas Carousel, enjoy some glühwein and schnitzel, and shop for holiday treats, gifts, and decorations. There is also a full schedule of live entertainment including a performance from the legendary Dal Richards on opening day, November 22nd.
Being in the open air, with the warm aromas of baked goods and European fare, shopping for gifts and browsing hundreds of unique ornaments are all reasons why I love visiting the market each year.
Vancouver Christmas Market, located at 650 Hamilton St, will be open daily from 11:00am to 9:00pm, and until 6:00pm on Christmas Eve. Admission is $7 for adults (13+) in the evenings after 4:00pm and $4 during the day from 11:00am to 4:00pm. Seniors (60+) receive $1 off admission, youth (7-12) are $3 and children (0-6) are free anytime.
For the price of any paid admission, visitors will be given a free season’s pass so that they can return to the market anytime over the course of the 33-day event. Those who attend between 11:00am and 2:00pm on weekdays can beat the crowds and enjoy 2-for-1 lunch admission.
