Traditional mulled wine, savoury treats and baked goods, carousel rides, festive music, and magical lighting displays are all a part of this year’s event.
“Many Vancouverites and visitors make it an annual holiday tradition to visit the Vancouver Christmas Market with friends and family,” says Denise Wegener, market president. “As it’s been a tough time for many, the Market is offering a reduced ticketing rate so that more people can visit us this year.”
The Vancouver Christmas Market is implementing COVID-19 safety measures to protect everyone involved with the Market. This year’s Market will see a new online reservation system to ensure the Market is not crowded and social distancing is possible.
Upon purchasing online tickets, guests are prompted to select a date and half-hour arrival time slot. Once they enter the Market, visitors are invited to stay as long as they like. The Market asks that all guests over the age of 12 present a valid COVID-19 vaccination passport. Adults aged 19 and over will also need to present a government-issued photo ID. Hand sanitizer will be supplied on site.
The Vancouver Christmas Market follows all recommended COVID-19 guidelines from the Provincial Health Officer, Vancouver Coastal Health and the Vancouver Convention Centre, with precautions listed on the Vancouver Christmas Market website.
