Vancouver German Christmas Market for 50% Off

Breastfeeding at VCM 2010
UPDATE #2: Ethical Deal has a similar 50% off offer that's still available until midnight on Saturday November 24! Here's the link. Their referral system is a bit different: if you click on my link here, I get $5 Ethical Dollars & so do you!
UPDATE: Due to an overwhelming response, this Groupon is already sold out as of Tuesday morning! Read through for another way to save on admission.

One of the events we try not to miss during the holidays is the Vancouver German Christmas Market. It's a German style market where you'll find traditional Christmas goodies like giant gingerbread cookies & Gl├╝hwein (hot mulled wine), as well as other traditional German food & drink. More on the edibles here. Vendors in cute wooden huts will be selling things like gorgeous handcrafted tree decorations, quality wooden toys & cozy wool hats that make great gifts. To see the full list of vendors, see the Vancouver German Christmas Market's list here. Costumed characters, local & international choirs, bands & dancers perform every day at the market, plus there's a carousel to ride on! Sprout's been each year so far & this year he's old enough to go on the carousel.

Now until Saturday evening, Groupon is offering three different deals for the Christmas Market:
  • $8 for admission for two plus two carousel rides (up to a $16 value)
  • $17 for admission for two, two carousel rides, two hot spiced apple ciders, & two souvenir mugs (up to a $34 value)
  • $34 for admission for four, four carousel rides, four hot spiced apple ciders, & four souvenir mugs (up to a $68 value)
If Groupon is new to you, the way it works is you sign up, then you can buy the voucher for the deal, which you either print off or access on your smart phone. Follow this link to buy the Groupon deal. If you're thinking of going, but not sure about the Groupon, you can still save by going to the market weekdays before 4pm for just $2 each. PLUS: Your admission works as a season's pass so you can go back for free the rest of the year! Carousel rides are $3 per person. Also worth noting: children under seven are free.

Frohe Weihnachten!

Disclaimer: if you follow the Groupon links in this post & buy a deal, I'll get $10 in Groupon bucks referral bonus. The words & opinions above are my own.

Nothing says “best gift ever” like a caribou!
Starting at just $40, Gifts of Canadian Nature help protect habitat for Canada’s native wildlife. A Gift of Canadian Nature lasts for years to come and is a gift that gives thrice! Once to the recipient with a personalized certificate and a beautiful calendar, once to the giver with a charitable tax receipt, and once to Canadian wildlife. This year we are featuring the snowy owl, the grizzly bear, the caribou, the gray fox and the Canada lynx. Click the image or follow this link for more information.

  1. Thanks so much for posting about the event and the details about Groupon. Sadly, the deal has already sold out. :( The good news is that your readers come between the hours of 11am-4pm on week days they can get admission for $2, which allows them unlimited entries. (Groupon users also get unlimited entries).

    Looking forward to seeing you, your little one, and all your readers at this year's market.
