Circle Craft Christmas Market is a special time of year for Vancouverites, and many of us have made it an annual tradition to visit this artisan market and get into the holiday spirit.

Circle Craft is a BC-run artist cooperative dedicated to providing opportunities for craftspeople to connect with the community. Members of Circle Craft exhibit at the Market; they also play host to makers of finecrafts from across Canada. This year, over 300 artisans (more than 60 new to the Market) will take part – clothing designers, potters, wood and metal workers, glass blowers, jewellers, toy makers, and more!

The Circle Craft Christmas Market attracts some 40,000 people eager to discover the creations of hundreds of Canadian artisans all of whom are jury-selected based on talent and diversity.

In addition, to round out the experience, visitors will find food vendors with BC and Canadian-made treats, entertainment by local performers, craft technique demonstrations, daily contests, and the “Budding Artists” open area where emerging artists will introduce exciting and innovative new work.

This year, the first day of the market falls on Remembrance Day, so most of us will have an day off to spend at Circle Craft.

    I would love to win these tickets because the Circle Craft fair is a yearly tradition for my mom and I. No matter how busy life gets, we always take a day to go downtown, check out the Circle Craft and then have a great dinner with drinks. It is really one of my favourite days of the year.

    I always went to craft shows with my mom when I was little. I still love going and it reminds me of spending time with her, which I don’t get to do as often as I’d like as she lives in Ontario. I love buying unique Christmas presents there too!

    Are you sure about the $2 off when ordering online? I just tried ordering and the total came up to $14 plus tax.

      Hi Jolene, it’ll probably be too late by the time I receive a response, but wanted to let you know I have emailed to enquire about this.

        Hi Jolene, I just heard back from Circle Craft. Turns out, the ticket prices go up to $14 after opening day, even when purchased online. If you’re looking for a deal, it’s 2-for-1 admission every day after 5pm, and all tickets are eligible for a re-admission pass to return and visit again in the same year.
