Capture the magical spirit of the holidays at the Lowe’s Toronto Christmas Market. Held in the historic Victorian-era Distillery district, this beguiling European style outdoor street fair includes a main stage with ongoing entertainment of children’s choirs, dance workshops, and more. Be sure to check out the open-air beer gardens serving warm mulled wine, perfect on a chilly winter’s night. Vendors sell unique holiday gifts, so get some shopping done while the kids visit with Santa Claus. Take a ride on the Ferris wheel or find Santa’s house in the Fairy Tale Forest Maze. For parking you’ll find surrounding fee-based lots as well as valet parking for $20 off Parliament Street. Or take Toronto Transit (TTC). The Toronto Christmas Market is open through December 16, Monday through Friday from 12 to 9 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Beer gardens stay open later Thursday through Sunday. Admission is free.
