Please note: British Columbia is in Step 3 of its COVID-19 restart plan. Please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures, including physical distancing and frequent hand washing, and wearing a mask or face-covering in public indoor and retail spaces. If you are sick, please stay home.

It’s hardly the holidays in Vancouver without a trip to the Vancouver Christmas Market to shop, eat, and ride the carousel – no matter how old you are.

The Vancouver Christmas Market website announced that this year’s event would be taking place in 2021 at its usual location at Jack Poole Plaza.

This fall and winter, you can experience the magic of a German-style holiday festival from November 13 to December 24.

Organizers say this year’s event will be bigger than ever with more than 80 vendors where you can buy gifts and eat to your heart’s content.

All your favourites are going to be there, so you can fill up on melty raclette cheese, spätzle, chimney cakes, schnitzel, and more.

Last year, the market was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So this will be the first Vancouver Christmas Market since the beginning of the pandemic and they have new protocols to keep guests safe.

“We’re currently reviewing the best COVID plan for our visitors and will update you soon with other announcements”, say the event organizers.

You’ll also have to purchase tickets in advance where you arrive within a 30-minute window, although you’re welcome to stay as long as you like.

It’s never too early to start to look forward to the holidays. This year, we are especially excited for a chance to sip warm glühwein with friends this season. Stay tuned for more updates from Vancouver Christmas Market.
