With our annual Holiday Magic event officially wrapping last weekend, we’ve officially kicked off the holiday season! Our spectacular lighting displays will remain lit up from now through to the end of December, so we encourage you to browse the neighbourhood, enjoying our unique retailers while taking in the fantastic holiday displays. The Village of Yorkville Park features a stunning light tunnel, glittering snowflakes, decorated trees, and more, while Bloor Street sparkles with 138 trees decorated with unique “Crown Lights” illuminating the neighbourhood.
We wish to thank everyone who joined us in the Village of Yorkville Park for what was truly an exciting evening.
Our host, Chloe Wilde of etalk, welcomed Canadian actress and singer CARYS to open the show, followed by KIESZA who treated eventgoers to a full-length concert. Bringing a fantastic energy to the event, three-time Juno award winner Kiesza performed a number of hits including “Hideaway” and newest release “All of the Feelings.”
The performances set to the glittering lights throughout the park brought out approximately 1500 guests of all ages. We’re grateful for everyone who joined us and would like to extend an extra-special thank you to our generous sponsors. The annual event raises funds for CANFAR (The Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research), which wouldn’t be possible without the contributions from The Park Hyatt Toronto (Gold Sponsor) Manulife Centre, The Holt Renfrew Centre (Silver Sponsors), Yorkville Village(Bronze Sponsors), and the Toronto Star (Print Media Sponsor).
