Holiday Fair in the Square is back for the 2021 holiday season at an all new location in Vaughan. This year's event is bigger and brighter than ever ― with a new partnership with Nights of Lights. The event will deliver over 175,000 sq. ft. of holiday fun in the GTA.
Start your journey by strolling through Nights of Lights ― a fully immersive light show full of seasonal displays and visual wonders, lit up by over 1,000,000 LED lights, all synchronized to your favourite holiday tunes.
The fun doesn't stop there! Once you exit Nights of Lights and you’ll be transported into Holiday Fair in the Square’s winter wonderland where you can shop for that unique holiday gift at the Artisan Marketplace or bring the family to meet with Santa to snap a pic! You can sing along with roaming carollers or soak in the holiday magic over a hot cup of mulled wine at the Polar Point Bar.
There’s truly something for everyone at this holiday spectacular!
