      Crowds Embrace Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market

After more than 10,000 guests attended the opening weekend of the Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market, officials are expecting records crowds for the final three days beginning Friday.

Christmas is a time of tradition; of building memories and creating those special moments that can be revisited over the years. What better place to do start the season and embrace such traditions than at Spruce Meadows?

Now in its 11th year, the Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market, presented by TELUS, is well established as a family tradition,  “must do”, on many calendars.

In addition to over 200 select vendors purveying a dazzling array of wares in four decorative pavilions and in the outdoor Plaza Courtyard, carollers stroll the grounds singing seasonal favourites, as part of an expansive entertainment program.

 Warm your hands over an open fire while enjoying a bit of Christmas cheer in a limited edition Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market thermal tumbler filled with your choice of beverage from hot chocolate to delicious mulled wine. The Main Stage showcases a variety of entertainment featuring choirs, hand bells, dancers and bagpipes.  Pony Rides and a petting zoo provide a nice break from shopping for the youngsters and of course don’t forget to stroll down the wildly popular and magical Reindeer Alley to visit Santa’s Reindeer.

For sports fans, we got you covered at the Telus Optik TV HD lounge in the Spruce Meadows Riding Hall.

Come and enjoy the myriad of innovative gift opportunities at the Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market and find unique gifts and fabulous cultural cuisine for the important people in your life.

Join us for a very special Christmas experience – “Only @ Spruce Meadows”.
