2018 Toronto Christmas Market: What You Need to do This Year

Take Photos, Get Hot Chocolate, Win Everything

Whether it’s your 1st or 9th time to the Toronto Christmas Market, there’s something exciting to see in the Distillery District during the 2018 Market.  As your resident guides to the Distillery District neighbourhood, we’ve got the goods and are here to dish.

These pies at the Toronto Christmas Market look absolutely delicious!

This year brings with it many of the known and loved Market activities.  You’ll be able to snap a photo in front of the gorgeous Christmas Tree or giant heart.  The Toronto Christmas Market team has also decked the buildings with waterfall style Christmas lights to create a magical, warming feeling as you walk down Trinity Street.  If that’s not warm enough for you, grab a hot chocolate from Soma, Cacao 70 or any of the outdoor vendors slinging one of Canada’s favourite Winter drinks.

Main Stage Entertainment

You’ll find the entertainment stage has transformed into a giant cabin this year.  And while the stage itself may be smaller but the good times have grown 3 sizes.  The complete program is available at TorontoChristmasMarket.com and includes:

• Traditional Tuesdays (with performances by Lily Frost, Alberta Rose, and Glenn Marais)
• World Wednesdays (with performances by the Canadian Children’s Opera Company)
• Classical Thursdays
• Friday Night Jazz (with performances by Steven Taetz)
• Saturday Variety (with performances by Angelique Frances, Alex Pangman and Heavyweights
Brass Band)
• Ensemble Sundays (with performances by Swedish Folk Dancers, and Toronto Beach Chorale)

 

Get Spirited

If you’re looking for a more adult way to warm up, Spirit of York, Mill St. Brewery, and Izumi Sake all produce spirits on site that you can enjoy in their tasting rooms.  On top of that, there are multiple beer gardens where you can taste spirits and other alcohol from around the globe.

What better way to wash down a Hot Pretzel, Sausage or Turkey Leg than with a delicious beer?  On Friday-Sunday night you can roam the 13 acres of Distillery District with some malty suds – a truly European experience in the Toronto Christmas Market!

Fascinate Your Friends and Family

Want to get the lowdown on The Distillery District?  Our award-winning Classic Walking Tour will take you inside the vibrant Victorian buildings dotting the Distillery.  The incredible story of Gooderham and Worts rise to fame is almost too wild to believe.

You’ll want to bring your friends, family, lovers and colleagues to this barn-burner of a story.  We’ll even hook you up with some goodies with complimentary tastings at Soma Chocolate, Mill St. Brewery and a voucher for Hot Chocolate.  You can get more info and book here.

Whatever you do during the 2018 Christmas Market, we hope you enjoy yourself!
