Nov 17 2017, 4:58 am

Vancouver’s favourite holiday tradition is almost here.

The long-awaited Vancouver Christmas Market will be taking over Jack Poole Plaza from November 22 to December 24. So you’ll want to visit at least once.

This year you can expect big things from the market with more than 75 huts stuffed with sweets, treats, and treasures. And there’s going to be authentic German delicacies, warming Glühwein (mulled wine), old world confections, a 30-foot tall walk-in Christmas tree, and glittering carousel.

But that’s not all.

There’s an epic entertainment lineup on the brand new Christmas pyramid ‘Flying Stage’ which will be perched 10 feet high above the market. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of seven acts you’ll want to check out at the market.

The Ukuladies

This musical duo from Richmond is made up of longtime friends Alana Zerbe and Becca Wade. They have been performing together for over a decade and you’re going to want to hear their mellow sounds at the market.
