Now through December 31, 2016. Willkommen to the 7th Annual Vancouver Christmas Market! This not-to-be-missed holiday event is inspired by Christkindlmarkts, the traditional Christmas markets that are held in local German towns that bring communities together with food, drinks, and unique gifts. Vancouver’s version lives up to its heritage with a wide array of vendors selling everything from German steins to mouth-blown glass ornaments to Alpaca wool clothing to of course, classic Christmas nutcrackers. Sample Bavarian beer and soft pretzels, tradional Glühwein (a warm, spiced red wine), delicious Dresdner Handbrot (‘hand bread’), irresistible Poffertjes (a sort of light, Dutch mini pancake), Spanish churros with a rich chocolate dipping sauce, and sweet and German pizzas. Check the schedule to find out what the daily entertainment is or just visit every day to enjoy the holiday music, dance groups, and performers that grace the waterfront location of Jack Poole Plaza, Canada’s home of the Olympic Cauldron. The Vancouver Christmas Market is a wonderful way to eat, drink, shop, and be merry in Beautiful British Columbia!
