The holiday magic is coming back to Toronto’s Casa Loma for the festive season, transforming the castle grounds into a winter wonderland. Christmas at the Castle and Holiday Lights Tour experiences will take over Casa Loma starting this week, and here’s what you should know.

Get ready to experience a holiday event like no other, kicking off December 1st. Embark on a Christmas journey as you wander outdoors, through dazzling light displays in the gardens and throughout the castle grounds and tunnels.

Holiday Lights is a self-guided walk that will delight guests as they encounter the almost endless holiday decorations, lights, and live performances. There will be a magic show, a fire performer, roaming mime artists, mascots, and silt walkers. We can’t for the Christmas carolers and of course, Santa.

“The design team at Liberty Group has been as busy as Santa’s elves, preparing for our fabulous, fun, and festive holiday programs at the castle,” shared Nick Di Donato, president & CEO, of Liberty Group.

“Our picturesque property and the majestic interior, so full of history and charm, really lends itself to an unparalleled experience in Toronto. We look forward to welcoming everyone this season.”

But that’s not all!
