In the market for some Christmas

The Distillery District is the proud home of the Toronto Christmas Market, drawing inspiration from old-timey European Christmas with its sweeping lights, carolers, musicians, and beer gardens. Running from Nov. 30 till Dec. 16, the Christmas Market has something for everyone to get into the holiday spirit.


Kidz-only

Kidzfest takes over Yonge-Dundas Square on Saturday. The kid-friendly extravaganza includes train rides, magic shows and face painting, along with special appearances from circus performers, Puss in Boots, Strawberry Shortcake and the minions from Despicable Me 2.


No need for nog

Start your holiday season off right this Friday with some free beer tasting. The Gladstone Hotel and Toronto’s Festival of Beer present the 12 Beers of Christmas (they claim it’s because egg nog is disgusting, and we couldn’t agree more). So don your fave ugly Christmas sweater and head over to the Gladstone. There’s no cover, and each guest receives five free samples of beer. Prizes, snacks and Christmas tunes will also be on hand.


Chew, chew, chew

Though once a dry neighbourhood, the Junction is now one of the hippest up-and-coming areas in Toronto, according to The New York Times. Join fellow foodies as you tour the ’hood on Saturday, stopping at shops and various historical locations around the neighborhood. Word on the street is that Santa will also be in the Junction that day, along with a special holiday treat. The tour will end at the only Canadian Pacific Holiday Train Stop in Toronto.


Are you a Belieber?

Justin Bieber is back in his homeland on Saturday, bringing his beat-heavy tunes (and toned arms) to the Rogers Centre. He played the half-time show for the 100th Grey Cup last weekend with mixed enthusiasm from the crowd, but we’re pretty sure he’ll get a better reception this time since his concert is sold out. Long live the Beliebers.
