Toronto is Canada’s first major urban hub. While Canadians have migrated out to other areas of the country, Toronto remains Canada’s largest melting pot centre. Melting pot is often interpreted as the blending of cultures to form into one that is indistinguishable from its originators. Although December is globally known as the holiday season, not everyone celebrates this time of year in the same way. In a city as culturally diverse as Toronto, you're more than likely to meet people from various backgrounds celebrating "Christmas" in unconventional ways.
Solaris Music Festival
INK Events & Live Nation Ontario presents the Solaris Music Festival. This is Toronto’s largest winter music festival, the city's premier electronic dance music extravaganza that takes place every December. Regardless of culture or religion, this is an event about irresistible beats, light shows and theatrical performances that can be enjoyed by everyone. The Solaris Music Festival 2019 brings you two days of nonstop music at REBEL. Day one features headlining artists like deadmau5, Bently Dean, Qruin, and No Fone, while day two brings out LUKAV, Borgore, and Above & Beyond. Note that this festival is suitable for those 19+ and you must have valid ID present at the event. Get your tickets now! This year-end event runs December 26 and 27, 2019.
Classic Chocolate Making Workshop
If loud music and rave-like body movements are not your thing, perhaps you prefer a more quiet and traditional activity. The Classic Chocolate Making Workshop is a more low-key event but perfect for those who appreciate the finer things in life and don't mind getting their hands on fine gourmet chocolate. Tickets are $82 with workshops scheduled for December 6 and 22; for more workshop dates running into the new year and beyond, check their Eventbrite page. The Mad Bean Cafe is the venue for this 1.5-hour event which includes a lecture on the history of chocolate, a tasting, a demonstration of tempering and molding, and getting your hands dirty making truffles and decorating lava cakes. Best of all, you'll take home a box full of the fruits of your labour.
After exploring new and unconventional ways to celebrate the holidays and meeting new friends in Toronto, the Best Western Plus Toronto Airport Hotel is a fine accommodation choice for its' location, friendly staff, comfortable and stylish rooms, and premium quality amenities such as indoor swimming pool, whirlpool, and a superb onsite dining facility, the Postcard Hotel Restaurant & Bar.
