Toronto's shipping container market holiday festival opens today

Nov 22 2019, 12:18 pm

Toronto’s shipping container market has been leaning into the seasons all year long, and it’s keeping up with Christmas with its new event, Holiday Hills.

Taking over the downtown plaza from November 22 to December 22, the stackt event is described as the city’s newest holiday fair, and will feature 27 days of festive programming.

Offering the opportunity to “eat, drink, shop, play, make, see, and connect,” the market will be filled with festive activities all month long.

Anticipate unique activations including hands on, holiday-inspired workshops, plus curated food and wine tastings, and seasonally-themed art activations.

The Handmade Holidays series, for example, will run in the space’s Belgian Moon Brewery, offering the opportunity to get creative with festive arts n’ crafts while enjoying a pint.

You’ll also get the chance to take a ride on a holiday train around the market on weekends, and tuck into a cozy wine yurt (!) for a warming glass of vino.

And for those who like to get active, the market just unveiled Toronto’s first ever “crokicurl” rink, just outside the Belgian Moon Brewery. Try your luck at throwing some rocks for free on Wednesdays, as part of stackt’s community day.

Also on Wednesdays for the duration of Holiday Hills, the whole marketplace will be fully licensed. That means that instead of needing to stay in one place while you enjoy a beer or a glass of wine, you can enjoy your drink while you shop the village.

For full details on stackt market’s Holiday Hills offerings, keep an eye on their website.
