Evening at The Toronto Christmas Market in the Distillery Historic District.

The Magic of a Traditional Christmas in the Distillery Historic District

Inspired by the Old World and influenced by the new, this month-long event celebrates the sounds, sights and scents of Christmas. Set in the Victorian-era, cobblestone-lined Distillery Historic District, the Christmas Market brings together local craftspeople, musicians and artisanal food-makers for a truly festive experience. Sip on mulled wine and European-style Christmas cocktails as you browse through the selection of hand-made ornaments, wood carvings and crafts. Then cozy up by the fire or take in carollers, brass bands and authentic European dancers. Don’t forget to stop by the giant Christmas tree for your Instagram moment.

Admission is free from Tuesdays to Fridays and costs $8 for advance purchase and $12 day of purchase on weekends and Fridays starting at 6pm. The Market is closed on Mondays.

All on-site tickets sales are cashless and must be purchased by credit or debit card.

The Tradition of Christmas Markets

A Christmas market is an outdoor event which celebrates the traditional sights, sounds and scents of the season in the weeks leading up to the holidays. Originating in Germany in the 1400s and now found in Toronto, it’s a place to gather with friends, share mulled wine, hear strolling carollers and find the Christmas spirit in abundance.
