Five Favourites at the Toronto Christmas Market

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.

Grow Your Heart 3 Sizes!

RetroFestive has partnered with Random House to present a children’s activity station with Grinch activities.

As part of The Grinch Community Cares Project, Retro Festive and Random House are encouraging children young and old to Grow Their Hearts 3 Sizes by giving back to their community this holiday season.

Children visiting RetroFestive’s Oakville store on Saturday Dec 15 will receive an Official Good Deed Tracker Booklet in which they can keep track of all their good deeds during the holidays.

The RetroFestive team will also be handing out Grinch buttons and stickers.  A draw will also be held for a giant 5′ Grinch stuffed toy.
