Enjoy the Warmth of the Season with Riverside’s Annual Tree Lighting Festivities
Plus Shopping and Holiday Cheer
Each year, on the last Saturday of November, Riverside hosts Light Up Riverside and Shop the Neighbourhood! This year’s festivities are happening November 25th:
From 12pm-6pm, Riverside’s establishments all along Queen Street East from the Don Valley to Empire Ave open their doors for Shop the Neighbourhood and invite everyone for meet and greets, treats and special happenings to help ring in the holidays!
There are always a variety of fun activities – culminating in Light Up Riverside, the neighbourhood’s annual tree lighting and cheer event from 5 - 7pm in the Mustard Seed Courtyard (outdoors at 791 Queen E). Free to the public, the celebration features a countdown and tree lighting, live music by Toronto Beach Chorale, photos with Santa, warm refreshments, crafts, and more for all to enjoy. This year, donations of baby items will be welcomed in support of Nellie’s shelter.
