The Lowes Toronto Christmas Market begins on November 29th and ends on Sunday December 15th in the Distillery District in Toronto.  It’s open Monday to Friday from noon to 9pm, and then Saturday and Sunday from 10am until 9pm.

This street market includes seasonal décor, a huge Christmas tree, a main stage with musical performances (along with other musical performances around the market), beer gardens, and vendors throughout the market selling holiday gifts.



This year there is a Mill Street World Caroling Challenge at 5pm on December 15th, Pet Photos with Santa on Monday’s at 2pm and 7pm, and every Wednesday at 7pm there is a special musical concert performance on the main stage.  The restaurants in the area are jam-packed this time of year so make sure to book your reservations early!  It’s a great event for adults who want a fun night out at the beer gardens roasting marshmallows by campfire on restaurant patios, and during the day there are plenty of children running around the market.  Parking is a bit of a nightmare, so make sure to arrive early or be prepared to walk!
