Boston Seaport is bringing back Snowport and adding a European-style market for the holiday season.

Billed as “the ultimate holiday destination,” the third annual Snowport will include large-scale winter games, the Seaport Tree Market, Light Up Seaport, and, for the first time ever, a holiday market.

The Holiday Market at Snowport will showcase more than 60 small businesses. Tuscan Kitchen will serve festive craft cocktails and arancini, pizza, calzones, and more from a wood-burning stove inside a 10,000 square-foot dining space. What’s more: Breezy Hill Orchard will serve hot cider, cider doughnuts, and gingerbread treats. Guests can relax and eat at seating areas inside a heated tent.

“This year, we are thrilled to introduce The Holiday Market and provide a neighborhood platform for so many small businesses from around Boston, many of which are female and minority-owned, while bringing a first of its kind experience to the city,” Yanni Tsipis, senior vice president for development at WS Development, said in a statement.

Revelers feeling sporty can try iceless curling, light-up Bocce, and large-scale versions of Battleship, Jenga, KanJam, and more. The North End Curling Club will also teach complimentary learn-to-curl classes on select Saturdays.

Other attractions worth checking out: a “dramatic” canopy of more than 2,000 twinkling lights, a 3-D backdrop of gifts, and a 30-foot interactive chalkboard called a “Winter Wish Wall” where guests can share their holiday wishes.

Light Up Seaport will take place Dec. 3 on the Seaport Common, when Boston Seaport’s 54-foot Norway Spruce tree will be lit more than 10,000 white lights and the Boston Children’s Chorus and other local entertainers will perform. After that, guests can take part in a Holiday Stroll, where more than 40 local businesses will offer one-night-only promotions.

There will be a Menorah lighting Dec. 5 at One Seaport Courtyard, and guests will be treated to traditional kosher jelly donuts and chocolate gelt.
