1. Visit Toronto Christmas Market

Until December 23, the historic Distillery District transforms into the Toronto Christmas Market, garnering its inspiration from the markets in Eastern Europe. Sip on mulled wine, listen to classic carols and warm yourself over a roaring fire pit while eating pork knuckle, schnitzel or the Canadian classic poutine. Check out the non-stop entertainment, the outdoor heated beer and mulled wine gardens and the magical 50-foot-tall white spruce Christmas tree that’s decorated with more than 40,000 lights.


2. See the Fair in the Square

Nathan Phillips Square, which is located right in the heart of Toronto, is hosting a fabulous Holiday Fair until December 23rd. Combining the charm and elegance of a Christmas market with the excitement and allure of a thriving winter carnival, the Fair in the Square is a great place to search for the perfect gift, take the family skating, or enjoying a romantic evening drink at the Square’s ice bar.


3. Go to a DJ Party on Skates

Taking place on the Natrel Rink each Saturday evening until February, DJ Skate Nights at the Harbourfront Centre are the best parties in town. So sharpen your skates and expect to hear some stellar DJ sets as you warm up your winter nights.


4. Celebrate 150 Years of Canadian Christmas at Casa Loma

Magical Casa Loma is celebrating 150 Years of Canadian Christmas until January 7, 2018. You can expect fantastic performances from illusionists and ice skaters, as well as some breathtaking holiday décor, including a mighty 40-foot-tall tree in the Great Hall, designed by fashion icon Jeanne Beker and eight other signature trees by talented Canadian designers. The kids can visit Santa in his castle workshop and participate in arts and crafts.


5. Experience Winter at Ontario Place

Ontario Place, which is located on Toronto’s iconic waterfront location is the city’s newest destination for all of your favourite winter activities. Go ice skating, warm your toes around the bonfire, or explore the Winter Light Exhibition, which features 12 illuminated exhibits by 20 local artists that are woven through the beautiful winter landscape.


Nestled in the colourful cultural tapestry of downtown Toronto's Garden District, the Ramada Plaza Toronto Hotel is a great option for a winter getaway. This gorgeous heritage property is bursting with elegance and charm – which just adds to the winter magic.
