Holiday shopping, food trucks, and farmers’ markets return to the Evergreen Brick Work’s Winter Village this December but that’s not all… the line-up of winter activities for the 2017 season also includes street curling, ski-bike test rides, not to mention cozying up to the outdoor campfire, an indoor board game lounge, the Etsy holiday market, and more!
The hub for holiday activities starts on Saturday, December 2 and is open 10 am to 5 pm every weekend in December (including Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve) plus weekdays from December 26 to 29.
The skating rink might be temporarily closed this season as the Kiln Building undergoes redevelopment but there’s still a frenzy of outdoor fun to be had. Look forward to a new synthetic Street Curling rink, ball hockey, or test ride a ski-bike, or go the extra mile on a group hike, enjoy winter-themed scavenger hunts and kid-friendly activities and crafts in the Children’s Garden.
In addition to Toronto’s largest all-weather farmers’ market on Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm, shop the onsite garden market for home décor, gifts, and even locally-grown, fresh-cut Christmas trees!
The Etsy Holiday Market also pops up in the Winter Village every Sunday in December and from December 26 to 31, and will feature 35+ rotating Etsy artisans from across Ontario.
Eat & Drink
