Spruce Meadows (October 24, 2022) - The Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market, presented by TELUS has marked the start of the holiday season since 2001. Following two years of modified Markets due to the global pandemic, the International Christmas Market is back in full force with some new and exciting changes.
Join us for three weekends (Friday to Sunday beginning on November 18) of expanded shopping with over 300 unique vendors including–for the first time–an outdoor Christmas Tree lot. Bring your friends and family and enjoy the yuletide entertainment; kids zone with a daily petting zoo (schedule TBC) and activities, and a magical holiday atmosphere. Santa's Reindeer can be spotted in the Riding Hall Circle on Sundays of each weekend as they prepare for their Christmas journey.
New this year are the market's extended hours on Fridays. Gates open at 12:00 p.m. on Fridays and close at 9:00 p.m., giving guests lots of time to enjoy all the festive features, entertainment, and vendors well into the evening.
General parking (included with admission) will be in Lots #7 and #8 on the West side and Lot #2 on the East side with an entrance on each side of the market to facilitate those lots. Those individuals looking for a premium parking spot will be able to pay an additional fee (in advance, online) and be directed to the Congress Hall Parking Lot - located steps away from the West Market entrance.
Purchase your tickets in advance for the specific day (or days) you would like to visit. You can come and go as many times as you wish during that day and arrive at any time during the daily hours of operation. Tickets are now available online. Our new ticketing system makes it easier than ever to share and exchange tickets. We know life surprises happen, so up to the day before, guests can exchange their tickets for a different day through their Showpass account. Through your account, you can also easily send tickets to friends and family.
