Holiday Fair in the Square

Holiday Fair in the Square is moving locations to join forces with Nights of Lights, to create a bigger, better and brighter seasonal event!

Holiday Fair will make its new home in Assembly Park (80 Interchange Way),  joining Nights of Lights and allowing these two festive events to combine together for a unique shopping and entertainment experience unlike any other, with a portion of proceeds from both events going to support Epilepsy Toronto and the services we provide to people living with epilepsy and those who love them.

Stroll through the holiday market featuring artisan vendors, food, drinks, a midway, and festive entertainment like carollers and holiday performers.  And the fun doesn’t stop there – continue your journey with an immersive walk-through light show! Nights of Lights features more than 1.5 million LED and RGB lights animated and synchronized to your favourite holiday tunes. If that doesn’t get you in the holiday mood, we don’t know what will!

Holiday Fair in the Square is a free event to attend, but tickets are required for Nights of Lights and can be purchased in advance HERE. For more details about Holiday Fair in the Square, including hours of operation, please visit the Holiday Fair in the Square website.

Warning:  Approximately 3% of people living with epilepsy are triggered by flashing lights. For those with photosensitive epilepsy, we recommend attending Holiday Fair during daylight hours only.

Holiday Fair Virtual Marketplace

In 2020. when our annual Holiday Fair in the Square was cancelled, we decided to start a new holiday tradition by launching an online, multi-vendor marketplace. And it’s back for 2021!

We are currently looking for Ontario small businesses with unique treasures to share. If you would like to be a part of our online marketplace, please CLICK HERE to contact us.  We’ll send you at the deets!

 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.  Holiday Fair in the Square Virtual Marketplace brings the magic of the square right into your home, by adding a personal touch to online holiday shopping as you will have the opportunity to ‘Meet the Vendors’ and get to know who you’re purchasing from. 

Not only will you be supporting small businesses,  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!
