What: One of the region's biggest and best Christmas shows and artisan markets is back for its 12th year. The craft market is an excellent opportunity to discover one-of-a-kind gifts, but there's much more to see and do at this event. Check out the artisan workshops, the festival of trees, the ugly Christmas sweater contest and a huge working model train layout––as well as the chance to meet Santa himself. A tasty array of wineries will also be on hand to offer tempting samples and there will be live festive performances from local choirs and musicians to keep your seasonal spirits high. If you're driving, parking is free and there's a gratis Vancouver Trolley Bus shuttle to get you from your spot to the event itself.
