Now on its ninth year, Winter Magic transforms Downtown Yonge into a winter playground with dazzling holiday lighting installations and a series of signature events in November. This festival celebrates the best of the holiday season and brings together the community. Winter Magic events vary in theme, audience, location and includes: Illuminite, Ice, Wine & Dine, and Kidzfest.
This four-week long festival offered pedestrians the chance to experience Downtown Yonge like never before. From August 17 to September 16, 2012, Yonge Street between Queen and Gerrard was reduced from four to two lanes of traffic, and new public spaces for people were created right on the roadway. Visitors were able to eat a meal or have a drink at a restaurant patio, enjoy weekend programming and lounge in the public seating areas.
