Vancouver Christmas Market moves to its new seaside home!

Vancouver Christmas Market
Christmas may seem like a long way off to many of you, but with so many Christmas events happening in our supposedly ‘no-fun city’, there is no time like the present to start planning. One of the highlights of the holiday season is the Vancouver Christmas Market, an authentic German inspired Christmas market place. This year marks not only their 7th Anniversary, but a huge change of venue and quite the expansion too! The people behind it all are excited to make days merry and bright at their new seaside site at Jack Poole Plaza, and it all starts November 26.

Vancouver Christmas Market

The Vancouver Christmas Market is the place to be if you’ve ever wanted to try Glühwein (a hot-spiced mulled wine), have a craving for Bratwurst and other German yummies, or if you need a pickle for your tree. With over 50 000 ft² of jolly goodness, that means more vendors than ever before, some new and exciting demonstrations, as well as favourites like the Christmas Carousel and carolers. Among this year’s expanded highlights will be Canada’s first-ever Christmas Pyramid: A 23-foot tall structure adorned with angels representing various aspects of European culture. Designed locally by architect Jordan Kutev, the magical sculpture rotates via a propeller at its summit and plays music from various regions. I cannot wait to see this work of art in person!

The Vancouver Christmas Market’s beautiful new home also means they can accommodate more visitors! So go ahead and mark it on your calendar, this is an event experience you won’t want to miss! It has become a tradition for us to visit, in the last couple of years, and this year we are in the market for a new Christmas Pickle (a very cute tradition in itself). Now that the kids are older, the new pickle must be smaller and harder to find.
