What (from 2022): Hosted in one of Vancouver's favourite craft breweries, this annual 'strange Christmas market' is a great place to check out a brilliantly curated array of 30+ artisan vendors, with ceramics, chocolate, jewellery, coffee and much more to peruse. There will also be lots of lovely libations to dive into and a tasty food truck to keep you well-fuelled. But when you attend an event named after the mythological (or is he?) goat-horned demon of Yule, you can expect a few surprises along the way. Save time for the best seasonal gift you can send to your parents this year: a photo with Krampus himself (try not to cry), available by donation on Saturday and Sunday only. Keep in mind that Friday night is a Krampus-themed bacchanalian party (admission includes a drink and nibbles), while Saturday and Sunday are regular market days.
