Christmas Market 2018-10-13T07:01:18+00:00
The Third + Bird 10th Annual

Christmas Market

Located at the Beautiful + historical Hudson’s Bay Downtown!

We’re excited to bring to you the 10th annual Third + Bird Christmas market featuring over 140 local handmade markers, a full cafe with good eats + drinks, a cocktail bar, live DJ and so much more! Since the inception of Third + Bird in 2008, our annual Christmas market has become a holiday tradition for Manitoba. Many market attendees allow the Third + Bird Christmas market to mark the beginning of the holiday season and allow the warm and inviting atmosphere, cheerful vendors and excitement of the other shoppers set the tone for the most merry and bright holiday season. In true Third + Bird style, the market continues to give back to local and global initiatives truly spreading Christmas cheer across Winnipeg and beyond. Our 10th anniversary market will see us pay tribute to our humble beginnings, while continuing to move forward in the urban market scene. Our poster this year features our classic bird emblem– the first piece of the Third + Bird brand that drove the name and has become an iconic logo associated with all Third + Bird events. This simple design reminds us of our roots where we started small with a big vision to see Manitoba’s best makers have a venue to sell their products while helping where we can. This vision and mission is still the same and we are so excited to see where Third + Bird will be at our next anniversary event.
