Holiday Events in Thornhill

That special time of year is upon us once again.  That’s right, it is time to get out and celebrate the holiday season in Thornhill.  With so much to choose from and an already busy schedule, it may be hard to decide on what holiday events are right for you.  As the premier real estate agent for homes for sale in Thornhill, I would like to suggest the following can’t miss holiday celebrations in the Thornhill area.


Festival of Lights

Celebrate the beginning of the holiday season with Markham’s Festival of Lights. Make sure to be part of the festivities and come out to enjoy live music, a fire show, fireworks, a tree lighting and a special guest appearance by Santa himself.

The 46th Annual Santa Claus Parade

With close to 100 floats, this year’s parade promises to be the best ever.  Come join in the fun, celebrate the holiday spirit and catch a glimpse of Santa all in one fabulous day.  We hope to see you there.

Main Street Unionville Christmas Market

Get an early start to all your holiday shopping at the Unionville Christmas Market.  From Christmas décor to unique, one-of-a-kind gifts and crafts, there is something for everyone.  Make sure to stop by and support your local vendors this holiday season.

Breakfast with Santa

Bring the kids and have breakfast with Santa this holiday season.  Starting this December join Santa and his helpers for some festive pancakes or French toast at various restaurants along Main Street Unionville.  For more information, please visit:

Old Tyme Christmas Candlelight Parade

Kick off the festive season with a unique Christmas celebration in Unionville.  With over 40 floats, live entertainment and festive characters, the candlelight parade is sure to get you ready for the holidays.  After the parade, be sure to visit Santa and join in on the tree lighting ceremony at the Millennium Bandstand.

This year, show your spirit of giving and join in on Toy Drive 2018.  Donate a new, unwrapped toy for children (newborn – 18 years of age) at the following Vaughan locations.

  • Any community centre.

  • City Hall (after Dec. 10).

Vaughan Christmas Village

During the holidays, Vellore Hall will be magically transformed into a wonderland filled with sparkling lights, local vendors and Christmas performances.  With live Christmas music, a free photo booth with Santa and festive vendors and local food trucks, this free outdoor holiday market is a great way to get the family out for some good old fashioned Christmas fun.

Come and experience the excitement and magic as Vaughan’s outdoor Christmas tree comes to life. There will be live festive music and holiday goodies to help kick off this holiday tradition.

These holiday celebrations are just another reason as to why Thornhill is such a special place to call home.  If you would like more information about any of these events or are interested in some of the new and exciting real estate opportunities in Thornhill, please contact me today.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.
