Christmas Eve Toronto 2011

Christmas Eve events in Toronto 2011

What's going on in Toronto on Christmas Eve 2011.

MARKETPLACE | The Last Minute Market: Holiday Edition 2011
Getting behind on Xmas shopping happens to the best of us! What a life-saver that there's an event like the Last Minute Market at the Tranzac! From 2pm until midnight, an open craft fair and art show, with tons of local talent selling their best work, is open for your business! It's hard to believe something like this could be happening today, usually sales like this are long done by the day before Xmas, but let's run with it! There are so many reasons to shop at an event like this: top quality merchandise, keeping things local, giving the local arts community some funds, and the most important... There's a bar! Where else can you shop and drink? There will be gift wrapping available as well.
Tranzac Club (292 Brunswick Avenue) 2PM

PARTY | Matzoball Party
This is the one night of the year that can be a tough one for those who do not celebrate Xmas. Good thing for the Jewish National Fund of Canada deciding to get the ball rolling on the Matzoball Party! You might wonder what took so long to get this together, given all these stories about "members of the tribe" resorting to Chinese grub and a night at the movies on this ever so "Silent Night". This event — which is open to all — will change that story this year! Apparently this party has a bit of a history, but it's still building. Xmas 2011 might be its breakthrough year, who knows? With a multi-floor thing going on, live music and two DJs, it should at the very least be a pretty good party.
6 Degrees (2335 Yonge Street) 8:30PM $20

ART | Visual Arts Exhibitions
Harbourfront Centre's Fall 2011 exhibition has been going on since the top of October, and if you haven't had a chance to make it out, today could be your chance! Various artists have their works on display in separate exhibitions, and there will surely be something for everyone. Solo exhibitions like Clare Samuel's "All the World", and Suzanne Nacha's "In deep" offer focus and deep exposure to a particular artist, while group exhibitions such as "Likeness" featuring Brett Gundlock, Winnie Truong, Bruce Horak, Petra Malá Miller, Catherine Lane, Serena McCarroll, Louie Palu, and Ben Walmsley will give a multi-faceted experience surrounding a particular theme or idea.
Harbourfront Centre (235 Queens Quay West) 12PM to 6PM
