The Vancouver German Christmas Market November 24 to December 24
The 700-year-old tradition of the German Christmas Market returns to downtown Vancouver for its second year. The Vancouver Christmas Market, located on the plaza in front of the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, is an authentic "Christkindlmarkt" featuring traditional German crafts, cuisine and entertainment. A special children’s area known as the "Kinderweihnacht" gives youngsters the chance to make their own Christmas gifts, visit with Santa Claus and ride the children’s Christmas carousel. German bratwurst, Swiss raclette, brataepfel (stuffed baked apples) and schupfnudeln (German noodles), are just some of the many delicious eats that will be available at the market. Colourful décor, seasonal gifts, family entertainment, authentic cuisine and an enchanting village atmosphere make this an unforgettable event. Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for youth. Children (6 and under) receive complimentary entry.
