Downtown Vancouver’s Only Free Christmas Market Is On This Saturday In Yaletown

CandyTown is returning for its 9th annual pop-up this weekend!


Organized by Yaletown BIA, Candytown is Downtown Vancouver’s only free outdoor Christmas festival. Complete with live music, a fantastic selection of local artisan shops and festive bites, there really is something for everyone.

For those just itching to get into holiday spirit, this free outdoor festival is calling your name. First and foremost, there will be plenty of local vendors at the All I Want For Christmas market that will make getting all your holiday gift shopping done on time super easy. Not to mention, the great selection of tasty holiday goodies and a cocktail tour!


Hit up the awesome Sciué Italian Bakery Caffé, The Flying Pig, Sushi Maro and tons others on this festive scavenger hunt for the tastiest treats. Otherwise, you can hop on a horse-drawn carriage (by donation), dance to some live DJ music, and even have a seat on Santa’s lap.

This winter wonderland festival will also be the host to different street performances with dancers from Goh ballet, live jazz from a Sasquatch playing the saxophone, and even a life sized Candyland board game! We couldn’t be more excited.
