6 Can’t Miss Holiday Events in Toronto

By Jessica Padykula
Toronto Expert,
Toronto fully embraces the seasonal spirit with a wide array of holiday events to celebrate the season. If you’re wondering which ones to add to your list, here are six ways to feel festive in Toronto this Christmas.

Seasons Christmas Show
Get everything you need for the holiday season all in one place with a trip to the 11th annual Seasons Christmas Show. Here you’ll find over 300 exhibitors showcasing everything from Christmas decorations to gift ideas to seasonal home accents, as well as food and drink ideas to cover all your holiday entertaining needs. The show takes place at the Toronto International Centre November 20-22.

Toronto Christmas Festival
All things Christmas take over Yonge-Dundas Square for 10 days December 12 to 21 for the Toronto Christmas Festival. For the duration of the festival there will be something fun and festive going on. Expect live entertainment at 10 p.m. each night alongside a laser light show, an interactive Santa stage with the chance to take a photo with the man in red, daily caroling, a maple taffy station, a mini Polar Express ride for little ones and a warming station with free hot chocolate.
In addition to all that there will also be holiday themed food and drinks, craft beer and vendors where you can pick up some holiday gifts.

Holiday Magic
If you’re in the mood to feel festive, a trip to Yorkville for Holiday Magic can help. November 14 until December 31 sees Bloor-Yorkville transformed into a sparkling holiday-themed world complete with light displays, animated storefront windows and festive decorations all through the neighbourhood. There will also be retailers with extended holiday hours making it easier to cross some gifts off your shopping list and holiday sales to be found at various stores.

Toronto Christmas Market
One of the most festive spots in Toronto during the holiday season has to be the Toronto Christmas Market running November 20 to December 20. The entire Distillery District turns into a European-inspired Christmas market that has been ranked among the world’s best. So many people attended last year that this year’s market has been extended by one week and there will now be a $5 fee to enter on weekends, but the market remains free during the week. The 28-day festival includes music, holiday activities, food, beer gardens with mulled wine and hot toddies, craft vendors and more.

Christmas by Lamplight[post_ads_2]
Black Creek Pioneer Village will be playing host to Christmas by Lamplight for three Saturdays in December. On December 5, 12 and 19 you can visit Pioneer Village for festive activities, music, food and drink from 6 to 9:30 p.m. During these festive evenings you can check out the many homes and workshops decorated for the holiday season, try your hand at seasonal crafts, listen to caroling and traditional folk music and check out the gift shop for unique gifts made right on site.

Cavalcade of Lights
Cavalcade of Lights takes place on Saturday November, 28 and it’s when Toronto’s official Christmas tree gets illuminated. The Toronto tradition, now in its 49th year, takes place at Nathan Phillips Square where there will also be skating parties, a fireworks display and performances by some of Canada’s best musicians. It takes two weeks to decorate Toronto’s official Christmas tree, which usually stands 15 to 18 metres (55 to 65 feet).
