They say that Toronto is a “City Within A Park” but it’s also a city of numerous diverse neighbourhoods. They represent cultures from across the globe with specialized food and shops, and they are also considered “home” for Toronto families. There are numerous special holiday events this year, both big and small, and we’ll keep adding to our list as we hear word of more, so stay tuned! So, celebrate our festive city with our list of Toronto BIA and Neighbourhood Holiday Events!
