Something merry and bright is coming to Edmonton this holiday season, and it arrives this Thursday, November 28. Edmonton's ATB Place is about to be transformed into a German-style Christmas fair and it's got a little of everything. The new Edmonton Christmas Market will be a wonderland of both indoor and outdoor holiday fun.
Every Thursday to Saturday until December 21, the first-of-its-kind Christmas Market will be filled with Bavarian holiday cheer.
According to Explore Edmonton, the new German-style market will be lined with twinkling wooden huts selling traditional sausages, pretzels, warm mugs of Glühwein, sweets and more. There will be light displays, live entertainment and carnival-style activities.
The new event promises to be a "winter festival different than anything Edmonton has seen before," according to Wild Heart Collective.
You'll be able to shop to your heart's content at all the quality vendors at this new market. However, if DIY is more your thing, there will be a series of crafting workshops that you can attend too. You'll learn how to create your own handmade wreaths, write calligraphy for Christmas cards, and more.
Plus, no Christmas event is complete without Santa and you'll find him in a beautiful, festive cottage at Santa’s Knotty Pine Village. To see the complete list of activities, check out the schedule.
If you want to sample some mulled wine or cider, pay a visit to the family-friendly beer garden, free to the public.
Single admission for adults starts at $5 and $3 for children ages 4 and older. Every Thursday and Friday between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., entry to the Christmas Market is free with a donation to the Edmonton Food Bank.
There's no shortage of magical places to go on a date during the holiday season in Edmonton this year - you'll find a complete list of them right here. This new Christmas market is definitely one to add to the list.
