Toronto’s magical Distillery Historic District has withstood the test of time. Thanks to its back-to-back internationally renowned winter festivals, it has also defied winter in many ways.
The Toronto Christmas Market attracts more than 600,000 people who flock to the Distillery Historic District to enjoy Christmas carols, delicious foods and artisanal arts and crafts while taking a stroll past the many holiday-themed decorations and art installations. The event, which started November 16, extends to December 23.

Now in its second year, the Toronto Light Festival is a visual journey and imaginative cerebral adventure. During the cold, dark days of winter, city residents are once again drawn out of their traditional indoor habitats to experience one of the largest open-air lighting galleries in the world. The event exhibits the creativity of local and international light artists and is a winter experience designed to entertain and inspire! The event comes to life (and light!) January 19 through to March 4. More information at torontolightfest.com
