Toronto is arguably one of the best cities in the world to raise a family! With countless community events, kid-friendly festivals, and seasonal activities, it doesn’t matter if it is +30 °C, or -30 °C your family will always have something to do in our nation’s capital.
Pop on your toques before heading down to Nathan Philip’s Square to start the year off right with your family at the annual fireworks spectacular. We recommend staying bundled for the Sugar Beach Sugar Shack in March as your kids will want to spend the whole day outside with their toboggans and frozen maple taffy.
The city starts heating up in the spring with fun festivals, sporting events, and free activities. By May, the cherry blossoms are out in High Park and the city is colourful and alive.
However, summer is really when Toronto starts to sizzle! Besides the awesome beaches, parks, and museums. We suggest hitting up the Fringe Kids Club, and the CNE for tons of EXcitment. Not the mention, celebrating Canada Day in Toronto is a must! Your kids will love the fireworks, live entertainment, and crazy Canadian pride.
Even in the fall, when the weather starts to cool off, the city still has so much to offer. For Halloween check out Boo at the Zoo, Howling Hootenanny, and the Twilight Pumpkin Float, for a scary good time. Once December hits we suggest finishing the year off right with one of the many kid-friendly winter and Christmas activities in Toronto. The Santa Claus Parade, Toronto Christmas Market, and Kidzfest at Yonge-Dundas Square are guaranteed to get to kiddos in the Christmas spirit.
The inside scoop on the best places in Toronto to beat boredom no matter what the weather brings.
