About the Swedish Christmas Fair

SWEA Toronto's annual Swedish Christmas Fair started in 1982. For 37 years we held the Christmas Fair at Toronto's Harbourfront Centre. In 2019 we moved to a new venue at Daniels Spectrum in Toronto. During the Covid-pandemic restrictions in 2020 and 2021 we had to re-think and opened up our Swedish Christmas Fair webshop. In 2022, we once again sold food and candy through our webshop, and we also held a live Christmas Fair. Last year - 2023 - we planned to hold a hybrid event but unfortunately Artscape, the company that manages Daniel’s Spectrum, went in to receivership and we had to cancel the 'live' event. This year we have found a great new venue in George Brown College's Waterfront Campus. We are so excited about this move. The venue is large, bright and has tons of parking as well as ample public transit options. 

Our new pickup location: 51 Dockside Drive, Toronto. Pick-up time is 1 PM- 5 PM on Saturday, November 23 and 1 PM - 4 PM on Sunday, November 24

Each year the Swedish Christmas Fair attracts thousands of people who come to enjoy the Swedish food at the Café, the Lucia procession, the Swedish Folk Dancers and Choir, the Childrens Loft with Crafts, the Book Corner, the yearly exhibit and of course the large selection of Swedish designed products. The large selection of Swedish food in the 'Mathörnan' or 'Taste of Sweden' as we also call it, provides the Scandinavian population and the adventurous Canadians with all the necessary items for their Christmas Smörgåsbord

The Swedish Christmas Fair is our largest fundraiser of the year. The money raised goes towards the yearly donations and scholarship program that SWEA Toronto supports each year. We support the Swedish Church, the Swedish School, the Swedish Folkdancers and Singers and also other Swedish related cultural in the GTA. Each year we award scholarships to Ontario students who have been accepted to study in a Swedish university. In 2022 we awarded $20,000 to ten students that study at Ontario universities. 

Thank you for your support and happy shopping online. We will see you on November 23 - 24, 2024.

Have a wonderful Christmas. God Jul.
