Now in Canada, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October, falling this year on the 13th. Linked to the European tradition of harvest festivals, Thanksgiving Day in Canada is very similar to American Thanksgiving (the last Thursday of November) with symbols like the cornucopia, indulgent turkey dinners and pumpkin and pecan pie.
During Thanksgiving, Toronto is a breathtaking destination with the spectacular colors of autumn in Canada. Stroll through beautiful parks with golden and crimson foliage. Enjoy high-fashion holiday shopping in Bloor-Yorkville followed by a Thanksgiving dinner at Signatures Restaurant. Share a warm holiday drink at Proof Vodka Bar or grab a throw and sip a chocolate martini at the SkyLounge with views of the luminous city. Or, just kick back and spend the weekend watching the Canadian Football League’s Thanksgiving Day Classic matches.
