Downtown Halifax Launches Three Locations for the Halifax Lights Holiday Market

The second annual Halifax Lights Holiday Market in Downtown Halifax is a multi-day, multi-venue holiday market featuring: artisans, festive food and drink, pop-up shops, holiday lights and décor, a petting zoo, live performers, craft demonstrations, hands-on crafts, musicians, contests and giveaways, and much more. Building on the success of last year’s Halifax Lights Holiday Market, Downtown Halifax Business Commission (DHBC) has expanded the program to include three locations over four weeks during the holiday season: the original crafters’ market location at Historic Properties, in partnership with The Armour Group Ltd.; a new pop-up retail market at 1566 Barrington Street, presented by Starfish Properties; and a one-weekend pop-up retail market at Neptune Theatre’s Scotiabank Stage lobby, in partnership with Eastern Front Theatre.

Fridays – 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm, Saturdays – 12:00 noon to 9:00 pm, Sundays – 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm

DHBC, in partnership with The Armour Group Ltd. and Historic Properties, is pleased to present the original Halifax Lights Holiday Market at Historic Properties Privateer’s Wharf happening every weekend from November 25 to December 18 for the 2016 holiday season. Historic Properties will be transformed into a winter wonderland where crafters and holiday retailers will sell their handmade crafts and unique holiday products. There will also be programs and events for the whole family to enjoy – including: a magic show, carollers, a “silent” party, face-painting, outdoor concerts, portraits with Santa for children and pets, a petting zoo, and cookie-decorating with Mrs. Claus.
