The Holiday Spirit in Ottawa Lives Here
Located in the Aberdeen Square while surrounded by snow-capped heritage buildings and wooden chalets is the Ottawa Christmas Market presented by TD. Thousands of Christmas lights and decorations twinkle and sparkle to create that festive atmosphere that is accompanied by holiday entertainment, local flavours, and, of course, some holiday shopping!
We will have over 45 local vendors attending the Ottawa Christmas Market. There will be a wide range of shopping options available that includes holiday gifts, traditional Christmas themed items, unique food, and beverage options and much more!
16 days of Entertainment & Programming
In 2023, we expect to expand the market which includes more cabins, entertainment, and attractions. We will have a full schedule programming for all ages! Take in the holiday lights, decorations, music, and don’t forget to visit Santa!
For the third year in a row, we will be offering free crafts for kids in Santa’s Workshop. Santa’s workshop will also be home to Christmas Cocktails and Crafts! Grab your friends and enjoy craft making while enjoying local food and beverages.
We help local businesses connect to customers during the busiest time of the year. In 2022 we had over 75,000 visitors from across Ontario and Western Quebec who engaged with 35+ amazing vendors, on-stage entertainment and, of course, visits with Santa.
We expect up to 100,000 visitors in 2023 with our expanded programming, more cabins for vendors and enhanced senses including lights, sounds, smells and tastes.
There truly is something magical about Christmas time and that magic resonates throughout the Ottawa Christmas Market. The Christmas music in the air, beautifully strung white lights throughout, the chilled air infused with the smell of wood logs burning all throughout the wood cabin rows filled with the smiling faces of truly local vendors selling delicately crafted products. I couldn’t imagine a better place to channel your inner Christmas spirit than at the Lansdowne Ottawa Christmas Market.

Our first Christmas market was 2021 and we can’t wait to be a part of 2022! We were blown away, week after week by the success of the market and the amazing attention our small business received. The entire OCM team are beyond accommodating and a blast to be around. The variety of businesses, activities and live performances drew big crowds every day and made it an amazing experience!
