Here's How You Can Get Into The Toronto Christmas Market For Free This Year

While we’re sad that summer is officially over, there are plenty of exciting things to look forward to this fall and winter. From celebrating Halloween underwater at Ripley’s Aquarium to the annual Toronto Christmas Market, there are so many events worth leaving the house for — no matter how cold it gets!

And for those who love the holidays, the Toronto Christmas Market is just around the corner.

The Toronto Christmas Market will officially open on November 14, 2019.

Which means that you can take in all things holiday-related in less than a month! This year, the market will feature tons of live entertainment, vendors to peruse for gifts, and of course, plenty of food like German potato pancakes and more.

Just like in past years, from Tuesdays to Thursdays and Fridays until 6 p.m., entry into the festival is free of charge.

But if you’re thinking of hitting up the Toronto Christmas Market on a weekend, there is a fee involved to keep crowds at bay.

You can buy tickets online, which cost $8 in advance, $12 day-of, or $30 for a premium experience pass, which allows you to bypass the market’s entry and exclusive access into indoor warming lounges. There are also limited tickets available at the entrance day-of, but your best bet is to buy them online to guarantee entry! All proceeds from ticket entries go to charity.

This year, the good folks at Toronto Christmas Market are also giving visitors the chance to visit for free on the weekend.

You can get into the 2019 Toronto Christmas Market for free on the first two opening weekends.

On the weekends of November 15 to 16 and November 22 to 24, you can get free admission into the Toronto Christmas Market just by bringing in a donation of eight non-perishable food items. The food will go to the Daily Bread Food Bank, so you can feel extra good about your visit.

Visitors can drop off their canned goods at a donation bin outside of the Ticket Tent in exchange for admission — it’s a great way to spread the holiday cheer to those who need it most.
