While the crisp days of winter may feel far away, the holiday season will be here before you know it. This year, there’s one more reason to look forward to the season, and that’s because of the Seattle Christmas Market. The brand-new market is inspired by Germany’s time-honored Christmas Markets and is set to be an unforgettable experience for all who attend.
From the creators of The Vancouver Christmas Market comes a whole month of new Seattle tradition. Beginning Friday, November 24th to Sunday, December 24th, the Fisher Pavilion and South Fountain Lawn at Seattle Center will transform into a “European-inspired outdoor Christmas village and community marketplace”.
