Enjoy the Warmth of the Season with Riverside’s Annual Tree Lighting Festivities, Plus Shopping and Holiday Cheer – coming up on November 25th!

Each year, on the last Saturday of November, Riverside hosts Light Up Riverside and Shop the Neighbourhood! This year’s festivities are happening November 25th:

Light Up Riverside, the neighbourhood’s annual tree lighting and cheer event, is happening from 5-7pm in the Mustard Seed Courtyard (outdoors at 791 Queen E). Free to the public, the celebration features a countdown and tree lighting, live music, meet and greet (plus treats) with our co-sponsors, photos with Santa (courtesy of Pawelec Photo), warm refreshments (including The Opera House Grill’s famous chicken noodle soup!), crafts, and more for all to enjoy!

This year, donation items will be welcomed in support of Nellie’s shelter including baby formula, baby shampoo, baby wipes, baby cereal, gift certificates (e.g. Walmart) and cash donations.

A BIG thank you to our 2017 Light Up Riverside co-sponsors, Baird MacGregor Insurance LP and Gillis & Kennedy RE/MAX, and to Fontbonne Ministries for hosting again in the Mustard Seed Courtyard.

PLUS BEFORE LIGHT UP– don’t miss coming by for Shop the Neighbourhood! From 12pm-6pm, Riverside’s establishments all along Queen Street East from the Don Valley to Empire Ave are inviting everyone for meet and greets, treats and special happenings to help ring in the holidays! Check out all that’s happening on our blog.

AND AFTER LIGHT UP– Visit Saulter Street Brewery at 31 Saulter St from 6-9PM to join in the Light Up Riverside After Party including $5 pints and live music, welcoming the whole family!
