Toronto Christmas Market 2017 Night Photos

The 2017 Toronto Christmas Market in the Distillery District is a favourite for dates, families and corporate groups!  Since year 1, Go Tours has offered an inside glimpse into the neighbourhood and today we’re showing you some of our top 2017 Christmas Market photos.

The Toronto Christmas Market Entrance at Trinity and Parliament Streets.

Trinity and Mill is considered the main entrance to the Distillery District and the guard hut has become a mainstay in photos of the area.  To the right is the old malting and kiln houses where grain was processed before the whisky-making process.

Now inhabited by City of Angels, this space was part of the Cooperage where barrels were built for the whisky aging process.  Some of the old wood and metalworking tools used here are still on display throughout the site.

The Gooderham and Worts Distillery was one of the world's largest and most successful alcohol companies.

A closer view of the malting house reveals its current tenant, Spirit of York distillery.  The second distillery to open in the area (after Mill St. Brewery in 2013) since it shut down as the Gooderham and Worts distillery in 1990, they focus on rye-based alcohols.

The end of Tankhouse Lane features the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, Gilding the Lily, Cluny Bistro, Yummi Candles and Tankhouse General.  The 514 Cherry Streetcar opened in 2016 and is one of the easiest ways to reach the Distillery District from the Yonge St. Subway Line.

The 2017 Toronto Christmas Market featured a new addition – the light tunnel.  This installation likely foreshadows the beginning of the 2018 Light Festival.
