Due to the pandemic, we have been without festive activities for two years, but many Christmas markets across Canada will finally be open during the holidays. If you don’t know what Christmas markets are, they are centuries-old German traditions in which many German towns host Christkindlmarkets in December. Each market is unique and features local artisans and regional treats. Locals participate in the festivities by sampling local delicacies, shopping for gifts, and sharing holiday cheer. Public health advisories may apply: capacity may be limited, pre-registration may be required, masks will be required, and social distancing is recommended. Here are the Christmarkets that are open now in Canada and you must check them out before another lockdown occurs!
