This is probably the most nerdy holiday market you'll stumble upon all season, and that's a good thing. This holiday market is presented by the team behind the Calgary Expo, so expect all your geeky shopping and art needs to be met. Local retailers, vendors and artists sell comics, toys, collectibles, toys and art. Costumes are of course encouraged. If you donate to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, you can also take a photo with Santa.

When: Nov. 25 and 26, 2017
Where: BMO Centre, 20 Roundup Way S.W.
Cost: Starting at $10
