Wakefield Christmas Market

This European-inspired outdoor holiday market is held annually on unceded Algonquin territory in Wakefield, Quebec. Founded in 2013 and held for one day only in early December each year, the market brings together 70 vendors and thousands of participants to buy local, handcrafted arts, crafts, food and drink; celebrate local talent; build community; and share holiday magic with friends and neighbours.

  • Grab a hot chocolate, mug of mulled wine, or enjoy a frosty Beau’s beer
  • Purchase last minute holiday gifts
  • Stock up on holiday groceries
  • Warm yourself or roast a marshmallow around the bonfires
  • Check out local talent in the heated music tent
  • Have your photo taken with Santa
  • Make children’s crafts
  • Cuddle cute critters at the petting zoo
  • Warm up in the library and take part in a Human Rights Day letter writing activity


Everyone is welcome! Wheelchair accessible parking and accessible bathrooms (with change tables for babies) are available at Centre Wakefield La Pêche. The Centre is located on one floor, with no steps. The outdoor market is all on one level; accessibility for strollers, wheelchairs and other mobility aids may be compromised if the field is covered in snow or mud. The market is loud and crowded and may be challenging for people with sensory sensitivities.

We suggest you bring the following to the market:

  • Warm winter attire
  • Cloth shopping bag
  • Cash (in lieu of an ATM, cash back is available at the front desk of Centre Wakefield La Pêche); many but not all vendors accept credit cards via Square
  • Toy (to donate to Toy Mountain)
  • Canned food (to donate to the food bank)


  • Walk, bike, or carpool if possible
  • Parking is available at Centre Wakefield La Pêche
  • Overflow parking is available up the hill from the Centre, on the other side of the round about, at Gatineau Park Parking Lot 17 (free shuttle service is available from P17 to Centre Wakefield La Pêche)
