The Toronto Christmas Market is coming to town next week

Nov 4 2019, 11:39 am

The leaves are still crunching underfoot, but winter is coming and with it, the annual Toronto Christmas Market.

And believe it or not, it’s arriving next week.

This year, you can get into the holiday spirit starting as early as November 14, and tickets are already available for purchase online.

As always, the market will feature plenty of live entertainment, beer gardens, vendors, and a whole lot of Christmas cheer. So get ready to get cozied up, and head down to the Distillery District to experience the magic.

While admission remains free during weekdays, the non-profit organization has evening and weekend charges of $8 in advance and $12 on the day of your visit — but worry not, it all goes to charity.

This year, you’ll also have the option of purchasing a Premium Experience Pass, which allows you to bypass the market’s entry line and includes exclusive access into two indoor warming lounges inside the festival, during indicated timeframes.

Free admission will be offered on the first two opening weekends of the market to anyone who brings eight cans of food to donate to the Daily Bread Food Bank. Visitors will be able to drop off the canned goods at the large donation bin outside of the Ticket Tent in exchange for a ticket.

The market is set to be closed on Mondays, but the Distillery District is open and offers a cozy and magical experience nonetheless, seven days a week.
