A holiday market could open in Burlington this year.

A recommendation is being made to Burlington council this coming Monday, Sept. 13 to approve a new holiday market in the city.

If approved, the event is anticipated to attract over 1,000 attendees throughout its four-day run.

“Staff have been approached by an organizing committee interested in hosting a weekend-long annual Burlington Holiday Market in December,” the council report reads.

“If approved, the market will run from Thursday, December 9 through Sunday, December 12, 2021, and annually on similar dates to celebrate the holiday season.”

If council gives organizers the go-ahead, the market will take place in Parking lot 1 at 431 Elizabeth Street.

The event organizers are also asking to use the Elgin Promenade, the new Promenade expansion area that will connect Lot 1 to the Centennial Trail. They’re also asking for a one-day, single block road closure adjacent to Lot 1 along Pearl Street between Pine and James Streets.

Although this will be the event’s inaugural year, organizers are hoping to obtain a special occasion permit from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario for the market in 2022.
