After a one-year hiatus, the Vancouver Christmas Market has returned home to Jack Pool Plaza (downtown Vancouver at the Olympic Cauldron) lighting up the holiday season.
Now in its 11th year, the German-inspired Market is both the longest-running and largest Christmas Market – and the only European Christmas Market – in Vancouver.
“We have really worked to bring a traditional German Christmas Market to Vancouver,” says Malte Kluetz, CEO and Founder of the Vancouver Christmas Market. “Each year, we add new elements and experiences to make the Market a more enjoyable meeting space for friends and family members alike. From sparkling photo opportunities to festive spots to enjoy a drink, there’s something for everybody at the Vancouver Christmas Market.”
The 2021 Vancouver Christmas Market features many new upgrades for the extended season, including an expanded Alpine Lounge space. Doubled to roughly 3,800 square feet, the bierhall-style area now ensures
more distance between visitors and more coverage from unfavourable weather conditions for a safer and
more comfortable market experience.
To help spread the cheer, a favourite Market tradition is back this year – absolutely free! All are invited to ride the HOLIDAYLIFE Carousel presented by Interac® free of charge, with an option to keep the holiday spirit going by making a donation using Interac® Debit contactless payments to Make-A-Wish® Canada.
Also new for this year, the 2021 Vancouver Christmas Market’s Gourmetstrasse sees a dedicated street selling packaged gourmet foods from around the world. Gourmetstrasse offerings include food to eat on-site as well as pre-packaged gourmet foods that guests can enjoy in the comfort of their own homes.

The Market has added more than 30 new vendors from far and wide for visitors to enjoy, with many of the
latest huts showcased in the new Gourmetstrasse.
