Located just outside of the downtown Toronto area, the Forest Hill neighborhood is ideally situated close to all of the action in the big city. From this location, you will be in a convenient location to enjoy all that the metropolitan area offers during the holiday season. Alair Homes has created a thoughtful list of a few of the more popular holiday events scheduled throughout the next few weeks.

Black-Owned Holiday Market

If you still need to do some holiday shopping, head to the Black-Owned Holiday Market on December 8 to support a good cause in the process. All are welcome to attend and to celebrate the season together as a community. This event begins at noon at Exhibition Place, and it runs until 9 p.m. In addition to shopping for goods from local black-owned businesses, you can enjoy live entertainment, food and drinks. You can also take comfort knowing that proceeds from this market event support a local children’s charity.

All Is Calm, All Is Bright

The World War I armistice occurred on Christmas Eve in 1914. This unplanned day of peace occurred when opposing factions mutually and spontaneously agreed to halt the war and celebrate the holiday. At the All Is Calm, All Is Bright service at Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church and Centre for Faith, you can enjoy holiday songs and remembrance in honor of this historic day of peace and of the soldiers who fought in the war. This event is scheduled for December 8 at 7:30 p.m. Canned food donations are accepted at the door to support those in need throughout the community.

12 Beers of Christmas

Beer enthusiasts will not want to miss out on the chance to celebrate the season at the 12 beers of Christmas party at the Gladstone Hotel. Bring your friends and neighbors, and wear your ugliest Christmas sweater. The party starts at 6 p.m., and it includes samples of 12 local beers, music, karaoke and dancing. You can also purchase additional beer from a dozen breweries participating in the party. This annual tradition has gained immense popularity and has sold out in previous years. Buy online tickets today to guarantee your spot at the party.

It brings more than 3,000 people together in multiple ballrooms at the Fairmont Royal York hotel on December 31.
