We don't really care that it isn't even Halloween yet - we're getting into the holiday season early this year. And with new winter events and festivals popping up all over the city, we need a strategic plan to tackle them all.
One day you definitely want to mark off on your calendars is December 1st, because that's when the Holiday Fair in Nathan Square returns for its second year at Nathan Phillips Square.
In case you missed it last year, this street market-carnival-fair, running from December 1st to the 23rd, has basically everything you could ask for from a winter market.
Skating? ✔️ Shopping? ✔️
Alcohol? ✔️ Food? ✔️
Shop the goodies from local artists, gift stores, artisans, and food vendors from around the city in the market. Play a few games or take a run on the rides at the carnival. Or maybe just enjoy a few laps around Toronto's beloved ice rink 👇...
But if you're much more interested in the tasty eats like we are, then be sure to hit up the Chimney's booth for some authentic chimney cakes and cones (even if its -20 outside).
Hosted by (and proudly supporting) Epilepsy Toronto, along with a bunch of popular sponsors like Tim Hortons, Pizza Pizza, and The Toronto Star, this year's fair is prepping to up the ante from last year's inaugural event.
Holiday Fair in Nathan Square has confirmed that the market will be open from 4pm to 10pm throughout the week, as well as from 12pm to 10pm on Saturdays and Sundays, giving you plenty of time to see it all. But make a note that the market will be closing early on December 23rd - Santa has to make it back to the Pole before Christmas.
And if it's anything like last year's, the market will be offering free admission to all. Yay!
