WhatsOn Nov 14, 2017 Beach Mirror

The eighth annual edition of the Toronto Christmas Market kicks off for the season on Thursday, Nov. 16 at the Distillery Historic District.

Doors open at 4 p.m. The official tree lighting and grand opening ceremony featuring a special performance by Janel Parrish and Dylan S. Wallach, stars of Grease — The Musical at the Winter Garden Theatre, will get underway at 6 p.m. 

This year’s event, which will run until Saturday, Dec. 23, will feature family-friendly entertainment, food and unique gift items from around the world, as well as outdoor heated beer and mulled wine gardens. The 2017 Toronto Christmas Market will include more than 450 diverse performances from award-winning singers, bands, dancers and carolers, as well as multiple interactive installations — not to mention Santa Claus and his elves.

In preparation for opening day, the festival’s signature white spruce was installed on Wednesday, Nov. 1. The landmark 50-foot tall tree, which was donated by Forests Ontario and Ontario Wood, has since been decorated with more than 40,000 lights, 800 Christmas balls and 1.5 kilometres of gold ribbon.

Organizers of the 33-day Toronto Christmas Market aim to recreate the romance and magic of traditional European Christmas markets, which date back to the 1400s.

Admission to the Toronto Christmas Market, which is open Tuesday to Sunday, is free during the week and $6 on weekends starting at 5 p.m. on Fridays. 

The Distillery Historic District is located just east of Parliament Street and south of Front Street.
