Working with our presenting sponsor, TELUS, we have taken the International Christmas Market on a new journey to rediscover the magic and spirit of the holiday season. This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the International Christmas Market, presented by TELUS. We are pleased to announce that we are celebrating in 2020 by bringing the market to a brand new on-line platform. There won't be any on-site activities or shops in 2020—but this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the spirit of the season on line.
“TELUS has proudly supported the Christmas Market for 20 years now and we’re thrilled to once again partner with Spruce Meadows and keep the tradition going. More than ever, we need to continue to find ways to stay connected and support the incredible owners, entrepreneurs, and local businesses we know and love.” – Navin Arora, President, TELUS Business Solutions.
The International Christmas Market, presented by TELUS, has been an integral part of the unique and diverse seasonal celebrations at Spruce Meadows, packed full of music, dancing, and shopping. We are excited to bring you new and innovative ways to enjoy virtual shopping and festive spirit to your home—and it’s now live!
“Now more than ever we need to come together as a community to support each other. Spruce Meadows and TELUS have been partners for decades, and we are proud of our partnership. It has been inspiring to us both to give where we live. That has never been more important than during these times. We truly hope that this adaptation of our historic Christmas Market allows our vendors and our online guests to enjoy an innovative and adaptive experience during these unprecedented times.” Linda Heathcott, President & CEO, Spruce Meadows.
MARKT. by Spruce Meadows allows visitors to find hundreds of curated items from local businesses from the comfort of your own home. We drew inspiration from our Dutch and German ties—their culture, passion, and fantastic markets—to create an expertly designed shopping experience. MARKT. by Spruce Meadows will operate year round!
The TELUS photo booth at the International Christmas Market is a highlight for many families and an opportunity to get yearly holiday photo keepsakes. TELUS will continue to bring you this experience with a virtual photo booth that you’ll be able access directly from the MARKT. by Spruce Meadows website.
