North York residents are in the perfect location to enjoy all that Toronto offers throughout the year. During the holiday season, you will be a short drive away from numerous festive events that you can enjoy with family and friends. Our Alair Homes team has created a list of some of the more popular events in the area.

Black-Owned Holiday Market

Take your holiday shopping experience to a new level by visiting the Black-Owned Holiday Market on December 8. From noon until 9 p.m. at Exhibition Place, you can shop with dozens of black-owned businesses that will be represented. While you are sharing this fun afternoon and evening of shopping with friends and family, you can also enjoy live entertainment and music, drinks and food. Your participation benefits a reputable local children’s organization.

All Is Calm, All Is Bright

In 1914, World War I soldiers from both sides mutually decided to spontaneously stop fighting on Christmas Eve. They shared peace throughout Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in a monumental event that is still recognized today. At All Is Calm, All Is Bright at the Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church and Centre for Faith, you will be treated to a memorable service that honors this incredible event. During the event, holiday songs that soldiers sang on the battlefield will be sung. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. on December 8. Canned food donations are being collected to help those in need.

12 Beers of Christmas

Celebrate the season in a memorable way by attending the 12 Beers of Christmas party on December 22. Bring your friends, and wear your ugly Christmas sweater. The party begins at 6 p.m. at the Gladstone hotel, and your admission ticket provides you with a dozen samples of beer from popular breweries in the area. Partygoers will also enjoy dancing, karaoke singing live music and additional beer available for purchase throughout the party. Because this popular party has sold out in the past, buy your tickets today.

Majestic NYE 2019 at Fairmont Royal York

One of the hottest New Year’s Eve parties in the area is the Majestic NYE 2019 event. Dress to impress, and arrive at the Fairmont Royal York hotel at 6 p.m. on December 31 ready to party.
