Vancouver Christmas Market relocates to Jack Poole Plaza at the Olympic Cauldron

2016 Vancouver Christmas Market | Artist's Rendering The Vancouver Christmas Market is celebrating its seventh year by relocating to a new seaside site at the Jack Poole Plaza at the Olympic Cauldron. Originally staged at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, the new space at Coal Harbour will feature more than 70 huts specializing in authentic German gifts and cuisine. The traditional signature delectables are returning, including Gluhwein, Bratwurst, Gulasch, Spatzle and more. With the expanded vendor space, there will be new additions, such as demonstrations of the Feuerzangenbowle ('Fire Tongs Punch'), a mulled wine and rum concoction that is dramatically prepared by caramelizing a large sugar cone over the concoction. This year's market boasts more than 22 food and drink huts, a dozen that are making their debut in 2016. Click on for a complete list of the 2016 food and gift vendors.
