Now in it’s eighth year, the Toronto Christmas Market has become a treasured annual tradition for Torontonians and visitors from across Ontario and the United States. We have had a booth at the Toronto Christmas Market each year since it began, and have watched this wonderful event grow each year.
The Toronto Christmas Market returns to the Distillery District November 16 – December 23, 2017! Since we have spent so much time there, we thought we should share our favourite things about the Toronto Christmas Market!
The Massive Christmas Tree
Each year Forests Ontario and Ontario Wood find the perfect Christmas tree for the Distillery District. It stands tall and proud over the Market, and becomes the backdrop for millions of selfies on Instagram.
Santa Claus has been featured in countless Christmas specials over the years, but they are not created equal. Sometimes Santa is sugary sweet, and sometimes he is just plain strange! It’s time to celebrate the best of the best Santas in pop culture history!
Ed Asner in Elf
When Buddy the Elf decides to got to New York City to meet his real dad, Santa is one of the first to give him advice:
“Well, there are some things you should know. First off, you see gum on the street, leave it there. It isn’t free candy.”
Ed Asner plays a tough as nails Santa with a heart of gold. He is stern yet supportive, and he genuinely cares about his North Pole colleagues and friends.
We have made a list of 2017 Santa Claus parades in the Maritimes ( New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island). Mark your calendars because Santa Claus is coming to (your) town!
