The tradition of German towns hosting Christkindlmarkets around Christmas dates back to the 1400s. Each one is unique and features local craft-makers and festive regional refreshments. Like many countries, Canada has also embraced this tradition and each seasonal market has its own special charm. The delicious smell of food billowing out from adorable timber shacks, steaming mugs of mulled wine and hot chocolate, beautiful crafts, arts, and festive delights makes a trip to any of these famous Canadian markets a real treat.

Got Craft?

Saturday, December 9–Sunday, December 10

The holiday edition of Vancouver’s largest indie craft fair spreads handmade love. Got Craft? started in May 2007 with just 20 vendors, but the event has now grown to over 75 handmade designers, along with food carts and hands-on workshops that let visitors create their own take-home craft project. Grab a free swag bag, a tasty treat from one of Vancouver’s food trucks and meet the local makers as you shop for some original Christmas presents.
