Circle Craft Christmas Market

The Circle Craft Christmas Market is a popular yearly Vancouver tradition, and now I can see why. This morning I attended this eclectic holiday market for the first time, and was wowed at nearly every turn.

Circle Craft Christmas Market

Now in its 38th year, the Circle Craft Christmas Market is meant to be enjoyed at a relaxed pace. Holiday music fills the Vancouver Convention Centre West lower level ballroom; decorated trees add to the ambiance.

Take a breather

Water cooler stations and seating spread around the show help for taking a breather and perusing the show brochure, making sure you haven’t missed anyone on your shopping list. Langara College also offers a small lounge with seating and reading material to take a load off.

Handy to know: The West end of aisle three offers a parcel check. Unlimited re-entry is available next to the information booth at the exit, and is non-transferable.

There’s just about something for everyone here, for all tastes and ages. Here’s a sampling of what I enjoyed during my outing. It was hard to narrow my choices down to just a few, but I hope that you’ll get an idea as to the variety of holiday items on offer here.
