How do you make a holiday season that’s unlike any other still feel meaningful and fun? It starts with showing a healthy dose of local love!

Whether you’re looking for safe seasonal events and experiences where you can connect with your community, creative ways to support local businesses, or a roundup of local retailers who would love to help you wrap up holiday shopping from the comfort of your couch, you’ve come to the right place! Think of the event listings, local operators, offers and blog posts you’ll find here as your virtual holiday helpers. Browse your way to a holiday season that feels just right for you.

Help keep our communities safe by adhering to the restrictions and guidelines found in the Ontario government’s COVID-19 response framework. Individuals and families in higher transmission areas should avoid travel to lower transmission areas (for example, from red to orange, from yellow to green), except for essential reasons.
