A Taste of Europe Comes to Seattle for Christmas
Monthlong celebration begins the day after Thanksgiving
By Seattle Mag November 27, 2023
A scene reminiscent of old Europe will be on full display at Seattle Center this holiday season when the city’s first-ever Seattle Christmas Market opens for a monthlong celebration.
Inspired by historic German Christmas markets, the Seattle Christmas Market opened Nov. 24 and runs through Christmas Eve at Fisher Pavilion and South Fountain lawn at Seattle Center. The European-style outdoor Christmas village and community marketplace will feature festive decorations, daily live entertainment, sweet and savory treats, and handcrafted gifts.
The monthlong yuletide celebration is based on the Vancouver, B.C., Christmas Market, which debuted in 2010.
