Happy dance! The Vancouver Christmas Market is back for 2021! More than just a craft fair, the Christmas Market is an authentic German Christmas Market that creates the perfect atmosphere to mix and mingle with friends and family, stroll through romantic rows of little wooden huts decorated in pine branches and illuminated with strings of little white lights. In each hut discover terrific food and drink and a wonderful array of Christmas gifts. Wander the market’s winding alleys and discover authentic German delicacies: sizzling sausages, warming glühwein (mulled wine), old world confections, and so much more!
Eating our way through the Christmas Market is our favourite thing to do! Ham hock, hurricane potatoes, gingerbread, bratwurst, and pretzels, I’m drooling just thinking about all the goodies.
The Vancouver Christmas Market is implementing COVID-19 safety measures to protect everyone involved with the Market. This year’s Market will see a new online reservation system to ensure the Market is not crowded and social distancing is possible. Upon purchasing online tickets, guests are prompted to select a date and half-hour arrival time slot. Once they enter the Market, visitors are invited to stay as long as they like. The Market asks that all guests over the age of 12 present a valid COVID-19 vaccination passport. Adults aged 19 and over will also need to present a government-issued photo ID. Hand sanitizer will be supplied on site. The Vancouver Christmas Market follows all recommended COVID-19 guidelines from the Provincial Health Officer, Vancouver Coastal Health and the Vancouver Convention Centre, with precautions listed on the Vancouver Christmas Market website.
