Grab your parka (and mask), put on your warm cosy boots and toque, then head out to stackt market for several weeks of fresh air fun at Holiday Hills. Experience a festive outdoor way to celebrate the season with your household in a safe and controlled environment from November 17 – January 3.
Holiday Hills is back this year in Toronto’s Fashion District at Front and Bathurst where you will enjoy mouthwatering menus from top local chefs, Instagrammable cocktails, cosy outdoor fire pits, and terrific live music.
For beer lovers stackt has its own onsite brewery, and wine connoisseurs can experience Toronto’s first Yurt wine bar — socially distanced of course. If those attractions aren’t enticing enough to get your long john covered buns down to 28 Bathurst, surely a spirited game of Crokicurl will do the trick.
Essentially, Crokicurl is a fun concept that cleverly combines curling with crokinole. The beautifully lit rink is a about the size of one end of a curling rink, and you have to throw your rocks between the pegs, like crokinole and scoring points in a similar way to curling.
It’s a perfect COVOD-19 appropriate outdoor activity and tickets need to be purchased in advance. The best part is, each ticket for Crokicurl gets you 50 minutes of game time and a 50-minute patio reservation at stackt market’s Belgian Moon Warming Station. Games can be played by two to eight people at a time.
With over 70,000 SQ.FT of outdoor space, Holiday Hills will be fully animated from November 17 – January 3 with an abundance of holiday inspiration!

Some of the measures in place to keep you safe include moving the outdoor patio tables six feet apart, and allowing no more than four people at each table. Servers and guests are required to wear a mask when not eating or drinking. And of course, all tables and Crokicurl rocks will be sanitized between each group. As most Toronto diners are used to by now there is a mandatory tracing questionnaire will be required when checking in for a game or to sit on the patio.
