This is something you don't want to miss.  It is the annual Christmas market held at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza.  Beautiful German handmade specialty gifts an delectable food and drink as well as fantastic entertainment.  will greet you when you enter into this magical market. 

You will feel like you have stepped into a village in Germany as you wander through the market.  With over 55 vendors each one housed in a wooden hut and trees decorated with twinkling lights.  There are activities for the kids, including a carousel.  For a map of the market click here.

German Christmas Markets originated over 700 years ago and were a way for people to meet and celebrate with friends.  Each village had its own specialty gifts and food items to enjoy. The tradition spread to North America in 1995 with the first German Christmas Market opening in Chicago.  Take the whole family and enjoy this wonderful part of the season.  Visit the Vancouver Christmas Market Website here
