Ukrainian dance at Toronto Christmas Market this Saturday 2013

It’s back! One of my favourite Christmas events that I don’t miss (see previous years photos and video)the annual Christmas Market in Toronto’s Distillery District. This Saturday the Arkan Dance Company returns along with the Ukrainian Academy of Dance and the Stefura Dance studios:

Inspired by the Old World and influenced by the New, this free annual event captures all of the tradition, heritage and charm of a European Christmas Market, while showcasing hundreds of unique and local handcrafted products. Family friendly entertainment includes musicians, carolers and children’s choirs, holiday themed stage presentations, Rudolph’s Reindeer Zoo and of course … Santa and his roaming elves! There is great shopping, specialty beer and mulled wine gardens, sweets and treats, and all the great restaurants of The Distillery Historic District. Come and experience the fun and magic of Toronto’s first and only Christmas Market!

The market is open from 10am to 9pm, and here are the times of the performances:
