Special Event Featuring Barenaked Ladies
TORONTO, Nov. 8, 2023 – You know Holiday season is just around the corner, when CF Toronto Eaton Centre announces their tree lighting! That’s right, after a year of anticipation, the iconic tree at CF Toronto Eaton Centre will make its triumphant return this season with a special tree-lighting event on Wednesday, November 15 at 6 pm. Hosted by Toronto’s own music legends, Barenaked Ladies, who will lead an epic sing-along featuring the Toronto Children’s Chorus.
With a special appearance by the jolly man in red himself, Santa Claus, the event will also feature the magical indoor snowfall that shoppers fell in love with last season. Adding to the wonder of the season, a BIG SURPRISE will be unveiled that will not only amplify the tree lighting tradition, but also create the ultimate holiday experience for guests.
The special night will serve as the unofficial kickoff to Toronto’s 2023 holiday season and showcase “CF Winterville” in all its festive wonder. Regional tree-lighting ceremonies will also follow at select CF properties across the country on November 16.
“The tree is a special part of the CF Toronto Eaton Centre holiday experience, and after a year-long hiatus, we are thrilled to bring it back – bigger and better than ever,” said Sheila Jennings, General Manager, CF Toronto Eaton Centre. “We have some special plans in the works that we can’t wait to share with everyone when we unveil the tree on November 15th. We promise it’ll be worth the wait!”
Letting it Snow for Charity
Back by popular demand, magical daily snowfall displays will continue this year, turning CF Toronto Eaton Centre into a dazzling winter wonderland experience. Guests at the property can experience the must-see magic and witness the snowfall at various times daily.
Throughout the holiday season, each time it snows, CF will donate $500 to Covenant House, Canada’s largest agency serving youth who are homeless, trafficked or at risk, up to a total donation of $100,000.
