Get out your jingle bells – the Vancouver Christmas Market is back for its seventh year.
This year will be a bigger celebration than ever thanks to the market’s new location at Jack Poole Plaza. More than 50,000 square feet of space and 70 different vendor huts means there’s going to be a lot of holiday spirit to soak in.
The event brings together the old world and the new for a Christmas experience unlike any other in Vancouver. Authentic German delicacies will be ready to discover – everything from sizzling sausages and gingerbread to traditional German beer and mulled wine.
There will also be handmade gifts from local artisans, bringing some West Coast spirit to this seaside German festival.
Because of its new venue, the Vancouver Christmas Market will also feature Canada’s first ever Christmas Pyramid, and a heated tent overlooking the water.
The market runs from November 26 to December 31, and no matter when you go there’s guaranteed to be rousing entertainment, delicious food, and delightful gifts.
Tickets are $8 for adults – but the Vancouver Christmas Market wants one Daily Hive reader and their three friends to go for free. Not only that, they want you to experience it in style, offering free rides, free food, free drinks, and some nifty gift baskets.
