Notable groups this year include: Melodious Vibes, Stacey Renee, and select musicians from the University of Toronto music program. Also in this area, we asked our exhibitors to help us to decorate some Christmas trees with items you can find at the show. So take a look around and if you see something you like, you can find the booth number at the bottom of the tree.
The Seasons Christmas Show is a proud supporter of The Salvation Army’s Toy Mountain. Attendees can help us to provide toys to less fortunate children by purchasing a gift on the show floor to donate, and dropping it off at the Rocking around the Christmas tree front feature area of the show. Our goal is to fill up two large bins with toys to donate to this important charity initiative.
We offer free parcel check for our attendees! If you are tired of carrying around your shopping bags, just stop by the Parcel Check area and meet one of the friendly volunteers from the charity, Breakfast with Santa who will help to stow your purchases away safely until you are ready to leave.
