Christmas Market

November 8th – 11th, 2018

Admission: $5/ Person

Thank you to all that attended this annual event! 2017 was a huge success for the MRAS.  We hope to see you all back for our 30th year in 2018.  All the best to you over the holiday season!

The Millarville Christmas Market, established in 1988 and one of the premier craft and artisan shows in Alberta, welcomes you back in November 2018.   We have an abundance of additional parking areas surrounding the grounds, with free transportation into the event!

You’ll enjoy four fabulous days of lights, food, hay rides, roasted chestnuts, glass blowing demonstrations, carolers, music, crafts, and many of your favourite seasonal vendors.

Decorate your home with handmade, unique decorations, wreaths, stockings and ornaments or find one of a kind gifts from our many artists and crafts people, including jewelry, glass, paintings, stained glass, pottery, quilting, knitting, sewing, hats, mitts, and scarves. Photographs, calendars, and books are available directly from writers and photographers. You will also find beautiful woodworking and woodturning.

Many of our summer food vendors are back with meat, baking and other treats, including pies, cookies, fruitcake, fudge, caramel corn, and candy.

Dress in layers to visit both the indoor and outdoor vendors with four heated indoor areas, Arena, Hall, the Quonset and a large heated tent. Have lunch, including soups and snacks from Spolumbo’s and relax in our gorgeous heated and covered picnic area.

For health and safety regulation reasons, dogs are not permitted in the Market Area. Please either leave your pooches at home when you visit. However, you might find some homemade dog treats among our vendors to return home with!
