Christmas Cheer Continues at Spruce Meadows!

 

After a hugely successful first weekend, the Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market is opening its doors its second and final weekend Friday!

Presented by Telus, the market is the perfect place for families to shop and spend time together. Over 200 vendors join in the Christmas spirit, selling jewellery, art, home decorations and much more! Relax with your family and take in a show on the stage of the Equi-Plex, where regional performing groups share their talent and the spirit of Christmas.

Children and adults alike are always thrilled to see Santa’s reindeer who come to visit Spruce Meadows annually for the duration of the Market. From Dasher and Dancer right to Donner and Blitzen, the four-legged friends are a fan-favourite. After saying hello to the reindeer, kids can head into the riding hall where pony rides are available along with a petting zoo.

Carollers roam the four venues and the outdoor Courtyard bringing Christmas cheer to the shoppers throughout. Cozy fire pits are placed outdoors for visitors to sit down and warm up between shopping. Once the sun goes down, Spruce Meadows lights up with over 74 kilometers of Christmas lights for visitors to enjoy.
