Ottawa’s First European-Style Christmas Market
Ottawa’s first European style Christmas Market has launched in the Casino Lac-Leamy Plaza at Lansdowne. Thank you JUNO Award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter, Chantal Kreviazuk for opening our market by performing songs from her latest and first Christmas album, “Christmas Is A Way of Life, My Dear”. The magic of the season comes to life with vendors, local craftsman, delicious baked goods and holiday favourites!
The First Edition of the Ottawa Christmas Market
Casino Lac-Leamy Plaza at Lansdowne will be transformed into a European-style Christmas Market this year. The first edition of the Ottawa Christmas Market will launch with the traditional lighting of the Lansdowne Christmas tree November 29 with JUNO Award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter, Chantal Kreviazuk, performing songs from her latest and first Christmas album, “Christmas Is A Way of Life, My Dear,” outside at Casino Lac-Leamy Plaza at Lansdowne.
The Ottawa Christmas Market will continue Fridays through Sundays until December 22. It will all come to life under a canopy of thousands of Christmas lights, with vendors offering unique gift items, and seasonal food and drink from traditional market cabins. Live entertainment, a central bar, fire pits, Christmas trees and décor and spectacular lighting installations (ideal for Instagram!) will animate the site throughout its run. It promises to appeal to adults and families alike, with family-friendly activities during the day and fun for adults in the evening.
Inspired by European Christmas Markets that have been around for generations, the Ottawa Christmas Market is the brainchild of Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group and is made possible through support from Ottawa Tourism. The Ottawa Farmers’ Market Christmas Market will be part of the excitement, with vendors inside the Aberdeen Pavilion each Saturday & Sunday.
