In 2019 we were vendors at the Ottawa Christmas Market. Our experience, as a vendor, turned out to be a very positive one. We were very impressed with the smooth running of this first-time event. Communication between event hosts and vendors was excellent. The cabins were great as we were just able to lock up at the end of the night and go home without packing everything up. There was sufficient energy sources in the cabin to allow us to have enough lighting for our display. The event, with all its Christmas decorations and on-stage entertainment, was a very festive event drawing people from near and afar. We are happy to be part of this event, once again, in 2021.

What a fun experience being a vendor at the Ottawa Christmas Market! Not only does the staff go ABOVE and beyond to accommodate you, they are such a great vibe to be around (really gets you in the holiday spirit). I did not know what to expect as it was the first Christmas Market in Ottawa. every weekend was busier than the next! I am so excited for next year and am so happy that OSEG has made this happen!
