Explore Toronto’s Distillery District

The place of Historic and Holiday Tradition in Toronto.

Located east of downtown Toronto, the Distillery District still remains heritage buildings of the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery. Also, there is no better place to get into the holiday mood than the historic District.

The Distillery District- A huge collection of Victorian industrial buildings

The Distillery District is a unique place in Toronto where you can find the fusion of the old European atmosphere from Victorian industrial architecture and stunning 21st-century design and creativity.

This neighbourhood is recognized as a national historic site because of its unique collection of 47 Victorian industrial buildings. These buildings once housed the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery, the largest whiskey distillery in Canada in the 19th century. Its walls and cobblestone paths could bring you the feeling of stepping back into an era of horse-drawn carts, windmills and sailing ships.

There is also the historic Millstone in the Distillery District, which was brought from England. The millstone was used for grinding grain in the historic windmill of Gooderham & Worts. Today, stepping inside the buildings, you will find a number of indie restaurants, bars, unique boutiques and art galleries.

Toronto Christmas Market- A magical holiday wonderland

During the holiday time, the Distillery district transforms into a magical wonderland as hosting Toronto Christmas Market. People come for special food, shopping, live music performances or just a taste of Christmas season.

Toronto Christmas Market hosts so many artisan vendors selling a variety of different products such as chocolate, Christmas decorations, jams and other goods, meats and bread, handicrafts and knit products, and so on.

For those who love taking selfies, there is a 50-foot Christmas tree, which is decorated with over 40,000 lights. Music also adds to the festive atmosphere. Santa’s Elves Sing-alongs pop up daily as do concerts and folk-dance displays. There are also other types of music such as Bluegrass, folk music, classical, jazz, and pop. Up to 30,000 visitors are expected to join the market a day on a typical weekend.

The Toronto Christmas Market 2019 runs from November 14 to December 22, open every day except Mondays. Admission is charged on weekends beginning at 6 pm on Fridays and free during the week.
