Try these memorable experiences

We’ve selected a few memorable experiences for you to enjoy a bit more of the Ottawa Christmas Market. 

December 21 Solstice

Indigenous peoples everywhere observe the Winter Solstice. It is the day that the sun is the furthest from the equator. Their spiritual foundation lies in the natural world of connection and Solstice is a time to honor and acknowledge the natural patterns of our universe and existence. 

Join us at the Ottawa Christmas Market on December 21  st to share in the traditional music of the indigenous peoples from our region. 

All three of Canada’s recognized indigenous groups will be included on the evening. First Nations, Inuit and Metis. There will be drumming, singing, dancing and storytelling. 

Performances by David Finkle, Aurora Jade, Sunsdrum, Mariah Miigwans and Brad Lafortune.

Location: Casino Lac-Leamy Stage

Hockey Games at The Arena at TD Place

The Ottawa 67’s are playing at home at TD Place  all month long! Bring your family and friends to the Ottawa Christmas Market and end your day with an incredible Ontario Hockey League game.

Everyone is welcome.

Location: The Arena at TD Place

Sensory Santa

Santa is visiting us at this special time to meet and take pictures with his friends with autism.

Sensory Santa is an opportunity for children with autism to visit Santa in a sensory friendly environment.

The time set aside for Sensory Santa is exclusive for children on the spectrum and their families. The line ups are much shorter and children can come and go while they wait. Often the music is turned down. No appointments are booked so parents have more flexibility.

Sensory friendly environment for children with autism to see Santa.

In partnership with  Quickstart Autism.

Registration Required.

After registration, you will be notified if scheduling changes occur. 

Location: Santa’s Village

  • Dec 19 | 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
