Holiday Fair in Nathan Phillips Square

wraped holiday gifts

When our annual Holiday Fair in Nathan Phillip’s Square was cancelled this year, we decided to start a new holiday tradition by launching an online, multi-vendor marketplace. 

 Holiday Fair in the Square Virtual Marketplace is a one-stop-shop for all of your holiday shopping needs.  Browse through a wide selection of vendors who each host their own individual business page to find a huge variety of unique holiday gifts and products this season. 

Many of us will be missing the festive joy that comes with holiday shopping but Holiday Fair in the Square Virtual Marketplace will bring the magic of the square right into your home. The new website will bring the personal touch to online holiday shopping as visitors will have the opportunity to ‘Meet the Vendors’ and get to know who they’re purchasing their products from. 

Not only will shoppers be supporting small businesses in what may be their greatest time of need,  but with a portion of the proceeds from Holiday Fair in the Square Virtual Marketplace will be going to Epilepsy Toronto. That means each purchase will be helping people are living with epilepsy, and their families. Now that’s holiday shopping you can feel good about!

UPDATE (09/23/2020): Due to the growing presence of COVID-19 in the city of Toronto, Holiday Fair in the Square is cancelled for 2020.

It’s that time of year again! Holiday Fair in the Square in support of Epilepsy Toronto is returning downtown Toronto to Nathan Phillip’s Square from Dec 7 – 23.

Holiday Fair combines the charm and elegance of a Christmas market with the excitement and allure of a thriving winter carnival. Now in its 4th year, Holiday Fair includes an open-air Artisan Village, tasty Food Trucks, Fireside Lounge, Polar Point Bar, visits with Santa, a Midway, live entertainment and more. Located next to the Nathan Phillips Square skating rink, Holiday Fair has something for everyone.  Visit https://fairinthesquare.ca/ for times and additional information.
