Snow has already been spotted across Ontario, and that's enough of a reason to start getting festive. With all the holiday baking and eating, shopping, decorating, and ugly sweater-wearing, the Christmas season can fly by faster than a reindeer. Toronto has lots of magical events that allow you to step back from the bustle and enjoy some Christmas cheer. This year, a popular holiday village is returning to the city and it's a great place to get in the festive spirit.

The Winter Village will feature a skating rink and lots of Christmas vendors serving food and other goodies. You can pick up a sustainably grown Christmas tree from the Evergreen Garden Market and roast delicious s'mores over the fire pits.

There will also be cooking demonstrations and street curling for a fun-filled day. Stop by the Sipping Container for a boozy drink that will warm your heart no matter what temperature it is. 

You can chow down on some drool-worthy dishes while wandering through the charming venue.

This year's village will feature indulgences like gourmet grilled cheese, vegan dishes, and authentic fresh churros. You can also enjoy gluten-free baked goods and treat yourself to amazing fried chicken.

There will be a wide selection of artisanal vendors on site where you can purchase unique Christmas gifts. Shop jewelry, food, artwork, accessories, and more at this holiday extravaganza.
