The 6th annual Vancouver Christmas Market is on now until Christmas Eve 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.
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.
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.
The 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, December 24th. Admission is $8 for adults (13+), Seniors (60+) receive $1 off admission, youth (7-12) are $4 and children (0-6) are free anytime.
