Now that December is here, we’re going full tilt on the holiday cheer. There are tons of festive holiday displays lit up all around Toronto. But our favourites are the ones we can access for free. We don’t know about you, but we’ll be slapping on our masks and heading out to each and every one of these amazing locations.

Here are 5 free holiday displays to check out in Toronto this month


We’ll begin our holiday tour in the Junction, where we’ll catch the Window Wonderland. This amazing display features tons of augmented reality pieces, brought to us by 20 local artists. It’s interactive, yet still contact-less. Which makes it the perfect destination for our holiday stroll.

Where: The Junction, Toronto


After the Junction, we’ll be hitting up Bloor-Yorkville to explore their spectacular Holiday Magic display. All through the area, you’ll find lit up decor, festive accents, and all-around cheer. This spot is perfect for snapping that festive holiday pic.

Where: Bloor-Yorkville, Toronto

From there, you can hop in your car and head out to Etobicoke to experience their magical holiday drive-thru. You’ll go on a journey with Santa’s elves, with loads of festive stops along the way. It’s hard to believe this one’s free! Just be sure to reserve your spot ahead of time.

Where: CF Sherway Gardens, 25 The West Mall, Etobicoke
Tickets: Reserve your spot here


You can spice up your commute by perusing through the Union Holiday display. They’ve got a gorgeous Glacier Wall, equipped with all kinds of glitz and glam. This one can be enjoyed on foot from the comfort of your car in a drive-by.

Where: Union Station, Toronto


Last but not least, we’ve got the Savage Christmas Lights Show. Although this one is technically free, we definitely recommend donating to the cause before you go check it out. All season long, you can enjoy evening light displays in support of the SickKids Foundation. The music, magic, and loads of fun.

Where: 1 Fletcher Pl, Etobicoke
