A Christmas market is a traditional event that celebrates the sights, sounds and scents of the season, staged during the weeks leading up to Christmas. These markets originated in Germany and Alsace, beginning in the early 1400’s and now they are held in many other countries all over the world.
The Banff Christmas Market is inspired by the Old World and influenced by the New. It captures all of the tradition, heritage and romance of these European Markets, while showcasing the best artisanal products of the Bow Valley and its surrounding regions. Boasting unique products, family friendly entertainment and an exotic menu of beers, BBq, mulled wine, and sweets, The Banff Christmas Market creates a warm and inviting environment for families of all ages during the day and an adult atmosphere in the evening.
