Do you want to get in the holiday mood? Dazzle the children and your loved ones by taking them to the Grand Marché de Noël! In full swing since December 2, the most magical place in the greater Montreal area will be open every day from Wednesday, December 14 from 4 pm to 9 pm until December 24 at 3 pm.
Crafts kiosks and gourmet boutiques!
Located opposite Place des Arts in the entertainment district, the Grand Marché de Noël reconnects with the tradition of the Christmas markets of yesteryear. It’s the ideal place to find unusual gifts, often made by local craftsmen, which will be all the rage under the fir tree.
And what about the gourmet shops that will soon have you enjoying sweet treats while visiting craftsmen’s kiosks!
A staggering fir tree full of activities for the little ones
The Grand Marché de Noël is also a family activity that’s not to be missed! At the heart of the site stands a majestic, superbly decorated fir tree, the largest fir tree in Canada.
The colourful site is animated in particular by the little VIA Rail train that will transport the children to a magical Christmas world. At the Milk Family Square, a host of activities await your little ones and teens, including Santa's House, toy structures, the Elf Workshop, a cookie decorating workshop, and even karaoke so you can sing your head off!
Take advantage of the opportunity to dine at the Grand Marché!
While shopping, you can even have a snack. Restaurant trucks await you on site. They accompany a myriad kiosks where you can enjoy, among other items, cotton candy, hot wine, chocolate, beaver tails, etc. This is an opportunity to satiate yourself while enjoying the magical landscape!
