The Ottawa Christmas Market is back, officially kicking off with the lighting of the Lansdowne Christmas Tree on Friday, November 25, 2022, at 6pm.
Ottawa REDBLACKS mascot Big Joe, 67’s mascot Riley the Racoon, and, of course, Santa Claus, will be on hand to officially kick start the holiday season at Lansdowne, while the Canadian Showtime Chorus will keep the Christmas music flowing.
The evening’s festivities will also include a performance by French Canadian group Les Rats d'Swompe. The French-Canadian act will perform on the Casino Lac Leamy stage in the Ottawa Christmas market following the tree lighting and a rock & soul band The Lionyls will perform later in the evening.
The Ottawa Christmas Market will run every weekend, Friday-Sunday, from November 25 to December 23, 2022.
