'Tis the Season


(SPRUCE MEADOWS, Calgary, AB):  November is upon us, and with it Christmas is just around the corner. That means it’s time for the annual Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market, presented by Telus.  

Now to enjoy over three weekends in November, the 2013 Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market is not to be missed. With over 250 vendors from across Canada and around the world featured in a number of indoor venues and the always popular Courtyard, there’s a gift for everyone on your list! A festive and joyful holiday experience, Spruce Meadows is the place for families to shop, relax and enjoy the start of the Holiday Season. Enjoy the sounds of Christmas carols in the air as you browse through booths filled with hand-made jewellery, home decorations, festive clothing, food and much more.

Need to take a break from shopping? A wide variety of performing groups and entertainment take to the stage daily in the Equiplex, bringing Christmas spirit with song and dance.

With Santa in his workshop at the North Pole, his reindeer have again come to visit Spruce Meadows! Always a thrill for the kids, Reindeer Alley hosts Santa’s four-legged friends throughout the Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market. Don’t forget your camera!
Reindeer aren’t the only furry creatures to join the festivities at Spruce Meadows! Childern of all ages can enjoy the petting zoo and the horses of Spruce Meadows.

Once you’ve competed your shopping, grab a hot chocolate and explore the grounds. With over 74 kilometres of Christmas lights bringing seasonal magic to the grounds.  Spruce Meadows is literally “aglow” with the Christmas spirit beginning November 15th.
