Ottawa's First European-Style Christmas Market Will Take Your Winter To The Next Level

There will be thousands of lights and tons of vendors selling festive goods!
Ottawa's Christmas Market Will Get You In A Super Festive Mood This Winter

A brand new holiday attraction is coming to Ottawa and we couldn't be more excited. This year, Ottawa will have it's first European-style Christmas Market! You won't have to drive all the way to Toronto for their winter market because we'll have our own right here in the city. The Ottawa Christmas Market is scheduled for November 29 to December 22, 2019.

The Ottawa Christmas Market will take place at the Aberdeen Square at Lansdowne. It will launch with the lighting of the massive Lansdowne Christmas tree, which you can't miss. We can't think of a better way to get into the holiday spirit than being there to see the lighting of the tree and browsing the new Christmas Market.

The new market will look magical, with thousands of twinkling Christmas lights. Among the lights, decor, and beautiful Christmas trees, there will be traditional market cabins selling all of your holiday favourites. It will be the perfect spot to go for a date night or to explore with your friends.

The different vendors will sell everything from seasonal foods like tasty baked goods to drinks that'll keep you toasty, as well as unique gifts for everyone on your Christmas list.

And on Saturdays and Sundays, as well as on the day of launch, the Ottawa Farmers' Market will join in the holiday celebrations.* You'll get to shop for holiday goods inside the Aberdeen Pavilion, too.

In addition to shopping, there will be plenty to see and do. The Ottawa Christmas Market will have plenty of live entertainment to enjoy. Or, you can visit the bar and enjoy a cocktail with your friends. There will also be fire pits to keep you warm.

The Ottawa Christmas Market says that there will be family-friendly activities in the day, and at night it will offer fun for adults. Plus, at the market, there will be stunning lighting displays designed for you to get the perfect Instagram photos.

Want to explore this market for yourself? Make sure to attend the launch and Christmas tree lighting on November 29!
