Join us for an on-campus winter wonderland — there’s “snow” place like it! ❄️

Will there be snow? Not sure. Will there be festive, seasonal fun? Definitely. The Holiday Market offers something for everyone, whether you celebrate holidays at this time of year or not. Let’s treat ourselves to some festive fun with food, items sold by local and student-owned businesses in cozy cabins, end-of-term academic and self-care support, and more. Plus, add some global learning to the season by attending international student performances in the talent showcase globe and enjoying student-submitted menu items at La Piazza.

The Holiday Market is brought to you in partnership by the Student Success Centre, McMaster Students Union (MSU), MSU Campus Events, Alumni Association and McMaster Hospitality Services.
