We are excited to announce that Five'21 Roasters Calgary will be a vendor at the 2019 Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market!

(Btw, stay tuned for more Five'21 Roasters Calgary christmas market announcements!)
The 2019 Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market runs THREE weekends in November:
Friday November 15th - Sunday November 17th
Friday November 22nd - Sunday November 24th
Friday November 29th - Sunday December 1st
Tip: Buy Tickets for the Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market Online!
The Spruce Meadows Christmas market is $12 at the gate, but you can save money by pre-purchasing your tickets for $10 online - which also saves you major time if you download these tickets to Apple Wallet. It's a huge market with A LOT of vendors & attendees, live music and entertainment.
Aside from Christmas shopping, the market is a spectaular event for the whole family - we've been going since our kids were born.
Things to do at the Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market:
-Visit the reindeer
-Grab a hot wine (a European tradition) and enjoy the fire pits outside
-Enjoy the live music performances inside the market
-Walk around the christmas light display at night time, followed by hot chocolate & bratwurst in a bun in the courtyard.
-Weather pending, skate on the pond at night time (surrounded by christmas lights!)
-If it is extremely cold, do not worry, you can drive around the christmas light display - we have done this in past years, with hot chocolates and snacks in the car (and carols on the radio of course!)
We can't emphasize it enough. The christmas lights at Spruce Meadows are worth a drive down for.
