Toronto’s Christmas Market
Written On November 15, 2017
Head down to the Distillery District tomorrow afternoon at 4:00pm for the opening of Toronto’s Christmas Market!
Now in it’s eighth year, the Toronto Christmas Market has become a city tradition full of daily entertainment, specialty foods, and unique gifts sponsored by local companies like The Toronto Real Estate Board and The Toronto Star. However the most impressive part of the festival is by far the fifty-foot tall Christmas tree donated by Forest Ontario and Ontario Wood.
Modelled after traditional European Christmas markets dating back to the fifteenth century, the Toronto Christmas Market endeavours to recreate the magic and romance of the holiday with on-site carollers, festive lighting, seasonal decorations, and of course Santa Claus. This year, Santa and his elves are available every Tuesday from 2:00pm to 7:00pm to pose for photos.
There are various special events lined up for this year’s festival including an exclusive performance by Janel Parrish and Dylan S. Wallach, the stars of Grease – The Musical at Winter Garden Theatre. They will be singing holiday favourites as well as one of the songs from the musical. The Toronto Children’s Choir will also be making an appearance. Check out the Toronto Christmas Market’s website for a full schedule: www.torontochristmasmarket.com
Aside from holiday music and themed decorations, the Toronto Christmas Market also has delightful food vendors like Uncle Betty’s and The Cabin by Campbell’s. Expect traditional French-Canadian poutine and maple fudge as well! As for drinks, the festival has a very well stocked beer garden. You can choose from mulled wine, craft beer, and holiday cocktails like Hot Toddies while relaxing under twinkling lights and heat lamps. This part of the festival is only open Tuesday to Thursday 5:00pm to 9:00pm, Friday from 5:00pm to 10:00pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 11:00am to close.
Be sure to venture down to one of Toronto’s landmark historic districts before December 23rd to enjoy all the holiday season has to offer. Remember to stay warm!
