Christmas Market

Vancouver Christmas Market at Jack Poole Plaza in downtown Vancouver

What (Information from 2023): Echoing the Yuletide allure of traditional German Christmas markets, Vancouver's version––steps from the waterfront at downtown's Jack Poole Plaza and now in its 13th year––has become a seasonal must-do for many locals and visitors. They drop by for the friendly artisan vendors tucked into little wooden huts plus the toe-tapping live music and the twinkling festive lights. The European flourishes are also a highlight, including imported German ornaments, throat-warming mugs of Gluehwein and aromatic stands serving delicious international comfort dishes and decadent treats: we're especially looking forward to the strudel and Spatzle noodles and we also can't wait to try the Hungarian gingerbread and Georgian Churchkhelas. Shopping-wise, look out for the Ukrainian tree decorations, Japanese pottery and delightful paper house ornaments. Arrive on a crisp winter's evening for the full glowing effect––including a walk-in Christmas tree, sparkling light tunnel and even a vintage carousel (sponsored by Aeroplan) that's free to ride. And don't forget to check out this year's new features: Karaoke Nights, Christmas Trivia, a kid-friendly Lantern Parade  and free photos with St. Nikolaus himself.
