Events Description

Come celebrate the return to warmth and light in the heart of Kensington Market over the Winter Solstice. Support our local merchants and unique culture of Toronto’s beloved neighbourhood over the holidays.

This event beckons the return to light on the eve of the winter solstice, every December 21st. On this longest night thousands of decorated revelers take part, with hand-made emblematic lanterns, encountering on route, tented-theatrical scenarios of shadow play, rooftop masking antics, roving giant puppets and stilted dancers with eclectic musical accompaniment. All are illuminated by the glow of fire breathers and spinners, a Fire Finale in Alexandra Park, and a community feast for the numerous volunteers harkening the return to light.
