If you love Christmas, Toronto is a great place to be. It's brimming with tons of enchanting festivals and markets that will fill you with cheer all season long. While celebrating in the city is fun, this unique event will sweep you away to the streets of Europe this year. A Scandanavian-style Yuletide festival is taking place and it's full of traditional Swedish festivities. Toronto's Swedish Christmas Fair is a charming place to explore this holiday season.

There are so many festive places to explore this Christmas. The Toronto Christmas Market recently opened up in the quaint distillery district, and Aurora Winter Festival will be transforming Ontario Place into a winter wonderland.

Canada's Wonderland is launching a brand new holiday event this month, and it promises to be a magical place to explore. WinterFest will have a sparkling ice rink, massive glimmering trees, and of course, an abundance of festive food.

However, you can also take a trip to Europe without hopping on a plane by visiting this dreamy Christmas market.

The annual Swedish Christmas Fair is run by SWEA and will be hosted at Daniels Spectrum this year.

You can explore booths filled with unique Swedish food, decor, gifts, and goodies. 

Pick up festive items like advent calendars, candles, and handmade Christmas decorations.

You can indulge in traditional Swedish food, such as open-faced sandwiches, sweet pastries, and, most importantly, glögg, a steamy mulled wine.

Entertainment will include folk dancing, Swedish carols, and the Lucia Pageant. 

The fair is free to attend and will run from December 7 to December 8.

If you love European-style Christmas Markets, you should also take a trip out of the city to visit Christkindl

The German Market takes place in Kitchener and is also free to attend. You can shop over a hundred local vendors and try some savoury and sweet German fare.
