In Canada, there is no shortage of winter. When It’s cold outside, it’s easy to talk yourself out of leaving the house, especially when you can order anything from Instacart and Skip The Dishes. If you find yourself swimming in delivery bags and boxes, and want to break the habit, here are some reasons to get motivated.
There will be several exciting winter festivals in Toronto in 2022. Here, we present our list of the top 4 ticketed Toronto winter activities for the 2022-2023 season and then provide an overview of attractions that are free and open to the public.
#4 The Distillery Winter Village
eOutdoor Christmas markets have always had an endearing charm around the holidays. If you are looking for that picturesque experience and are intrigued by the latest arrivals on the local food scene, check out the outdoor shopping cabins and food trucks open from November 17 to December 31, 2022, in Toronto’s historic Distillery District.
#3 The Royal Conservatory’s 21C Music Festival

Back for another year at Canada’s Wonderland, the sights and spectacles will leave you walking in a winter wonderland. Happening on select nights from November 18 to December 31, experience some skating on Snow Flake Lake while admiring the light displays. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for two 50-foot Christmas trees!
#1 Winterfolk Music Festival
Who doesn’t love live music? For the past 21 years, Winterfolk has been one of the greatest events in Toronto for taking in the local music scene during winter. With more than 100 artists performing on three stages alongside music workshops, these will be three days of fun you won’t want to miss. Winterfolk runs from February 17-19, 2023.
Toronto Winter Activities that do not Require a Ticket
Getting in some winter birdwatching at Tommy Thompson Park is a great way to admire the finer things in winter. While you’re at it, you could take a fat bike down the Lower Don River Trail and make a whole day out of it.
Adjacent to City Hall and surrounded by lights, the public skating at Nathan Phillips Square is spectacular. If skating is not your thing, you can always take in the sight of 127 trees that will be lit up along Bloor Street and Yorkville Park starting November 27. If going out in the cold scares you, huddle up close to one of the outdoor campfires as you go. Even if you don’t venture too far, this is a good start.
