The holiday season, a.k.a the most magical time of the year, is fast approaching. While it is tempting to stay inside under layers of fuzzy blankets, there are some events worth putting on your warmest toque for, and this Toronto festival is one of them. You'll want to experience this truly festive event no matter what the thermometer is reading. Toronto's Aurora Winter Festival 2019 is back for another year, and it looks more magical than ever.
Toronto has its fair share of breathtaking winter activities, and the Aurora Winter Festival is top of the list! Presented by the CNE, this stunning five-week wonderland takes place at Ontario Place and brings all your winter dreams to life.
This year's festival is featuring a glassy frozen skating pond, a 170 ft tube slide, three mystical worlds to explore, a food garden, and more! Ride the glowing ferris wheel to see the twinkling views from above, and explore the massive light displays lighting up the night. There are tons of rides and games to check out, as well as a journey to the North Pole where you can dance the evening away in Disco Den.
Wander through a fantastical village that will make you feel like you've fallen into a storybook! Explore immersive light installations as you make your way down Candy Cane Lane to the Gingerbread Hut and Candy Shack.
Step through Whimsical Forest to see Fairy Hollow and Gnome Village. Don't forget to stop by the Yeti Cave! Warm up in the food village with some delicious treats, and shop for holiday goodies at the vendor stalls.
The festival officially opens on Nov. 22, 2019, and runs until Jan. 5, 2020. Tickets go on sale as early as Sept. 26. You can book a holiday event at the festival, as well as buy family passes and individual passes through the website.
