A magical tradition is returning to Toronto’s Fairmont Royal York. The Fairmont has created the perfect home for you to celebrate the holidays this festive season. From tree-lighting to over-the-top cocktails, you’ll want to stop The Thirsty Elf pop-up in Toronto.

On November 19th, Fairmont’s holiday experience commences with the annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in the heart of the hotel. Watch as the tree comes to life and then head to The Thirsty Elf for a whimsical cocktail bar experience. Christmas sweaters are encouraged as you enjoy kitschy décor while sipping on cheerful, festive cocktails.
