World-Class Holiday Shopping in Toronto Christmas Market
Distillery Historic District
November 20th-December 20th
Tuesday-Friday – FREE!
Saturday & Sunday – $5
So much more than a pop-up market, this treasured Distillery District tradition is a winter village all its own, aglow with everything from a brightly lit 45-ft white spruce and the harmony of wandering carolers, to the warm scent of roasting nuts and hot cider everywhere you turn. Of course, it wouldn't be Toronto Christmas Market without hundreds of local artists and global vendors selling their wares from around the world as well, just 10 short minutes from your room or suite in the comfort of our Yorkville hotel.
"One of the World's 10 Best Holiday Markets"
What is it that sets Toronto Christmas Market apart? The real question is, what doesn't? Oft-awarded by travel resources like Fodor's (above) and USA Today, it's the Old-World combination of family fun, unique shopping options, hearty food, and engaging entertainment that keep people coming day after day – not to mention four festive beer gardens! Try a warm glass of traditional German Glühwein (mulled wine), a pint of seasonal craft beer, dram of Scotch or a cocktail with the best liqueur in the world, South Africa's own Amarula Cream – all guaranteed to recharge your holiday cheer.
