‘Tis the season to visit The Six! We can’t wait to check out the best Christmas events Toronto has to offer. To lean on the cliched phrase: there really is something for everyone!

Bring your family and friends together and get in the spirit of the season. These Christmas events in Toronto will warm the cockles of any heart. 


Toronto Christmas Market

Dates: November 14, 2019 to December 22, 2019
Open everyday except Monday
Cost: Free until 5pm on Fridays. $8 on weekends, except for children under five, who are free. 

Straight out of a Hallmark movie, the Toronto Christmas market is back again this year, boasting its merry array of yuletide festivities that have earned it the distinction of being one of the best Christmas markets in the world. 

Located in the historic and stunning Distillery District, the Christmas Market in Toronto brings magic and charm to this joyous time of year. Hundreds of local, handcrafted products, millions of lights, beer, mulled wine and hospitality gardens, a Ferris Wheel, and of course, visits from Santa make this one of the most enduring Christmas events in Toronto. 


Winter Craft Beer Festival

Date: Saturday, February 1, 2020. 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Cost: $35 all-in

While this event doesn’t happen until next year, you’ll want to put getting tickets on your list of things to do this holiday season. Tickets go on sale December 1, 2019 and the Winter Craft Beer Festival is gearing up to be better than ever.

We’re talking dozens of the best craft brewers, giant-sized classic games, DJ and dancing, marshmallow roasting, photo station food trucks, and more flannel than you can shake a ski pole at–all at our home, the Roundhouse Park.

Bust out your retro snow gear and get ready to suit up for one of the most anticipated events of the winter season.

Christmas Day Game: Celtics vs. Raptors

Date: Wednesday, December 25, 2019 at noon
Cost: varies

Drag yourself out of your jammies and head out to support the Raps at the Scotiabank Arena. This is one of the more rare Christmas events in Toronto, since Christmas Day games don’t happen often. Sure, heading to watch an NBA game may not be something you do every year, but years from now, you’ll be able to say, “Remember when…!”


The famous Toronto Christmas parade, which was held on November 14th, may have kicked off the holiday season, but it certainly doesn’t end it. Christmas events in Toronto abound, so bundle up, bring the people you love and get out there to enjoy the most wonderful time of the year in the best place on earth.
