It’s hard to believe that the holidays are just around the corner, but here we are – and the return of many popular Christmas-themed festivities are upon us. For one, the Vancouver Christmas Market – AKA the largest of its kind and the longest-running in the city, returns this upcoming weekend!

Jack Poole Plaza will once again transform into the ultimate winter wonderland, complete with mulled wine, freshly made pretzels, and bratwurst – to name just a few tempting treats.

The market will also feature their beloved holiday carousel, a themed “Lover’s Lane,” and plenty of holiday shopping to go around.
