Win a holiday staycation from the Vancouver Christmas Market (CONTEST)

Nov 24 2021, 11:49 pm

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

The Vancouver Christmas Market, one of the city’s signature seasonal events, is now open at Jack Poole Plaza for the 11th year. The holiday tradition runs until December 24, with extended holiday hours between November 19 and December 23 (11:30 am to 9:30 pm) for all who attend.

The market is even open on Christmas Eve until 6 pm!

The authentic German market makes for a perfect holiday outing, with over 80 vendors, including 30 brand new ones, with authentic German sweets, treats, and treasures to check out. Plus, there are many festive activities and live entertainment to enjoy.

The 2021 Vancouver Christmas Market features many exciting additions and upgrades for the festive season. Stop by the expanded Alpine Lounge, which has doubled in size to roughly 3,800 square feet. The massive bierhall-style space ensures more distance between visitors and more coverage from any unfavourable weather conditions.

Brand new for this year’s Vancouver Christmas Market is the Gourmetstrasse, a dedicated street selling packaged gourmet foods from around the world. Gourmetstrasse serves up delicious food to eat during your visit as well as pre-packaged gourmet foods to take home and enjoy throughout the season.

Don’t forget to order the market’s signature German beer, GlĆ¼hwein (hot-spiced mulled wine), and savoury and sweet delicacies to keep you warm and full. Then sing along to the live entertainment happening on the Flying Stage on the second storey of the Christmas Pyramid.
