In the heart of Toronto at Nathan Phillips Square, the annual Holiday Fair in the Square combines the charm and elegance of a traditional European Christmas market with the excitement and allure of a thriving winter carnival.
Find a unique gift at the Giant Artisan Marketplace (100+ curated vendors), take the family for an afternoon of skating and festive fun, stop by for some lunch from the food trucks, and enjoy a romantic evening drink at the Fire Pit Lounge and Polar Point Bar. Highlights for kids include midway rides and the Great Canadian Carousel, ice skating, Santa meet and greet and photos (weekends), festive lights, and buskers and other live entertainment that changes each day.
Admission is free; ride tickets and passes are available for purchase. Proceeds benefit Epilepsy Toronto, which helps to support over 40,000 families across the GTA living with epilepsy.
