Today, CF Toronto Eaton Centre, in partnership with Starbucks Canada, is set to light its iconic 108-feet-tall Christmas tree - the tallest tree in Toronto - marking its third annual Tree Lighting event to officially kick off the holiday season in the city. This year's celebration features a new interactive and highly visual experience powered by LED technology. The event and countdown will be led by passionate and well-known celebrity host Kardinal Offishall alongside the talented Celebrity Marauders who will light the show-stopping Christmas tree with the help of thousands in attendance. As the official Home of Team Canada, CF is thrilled to have four-time Olympic medalist Penny Oleksiak join the party to kick off the holiday season. 


"At Cadillac Fairview, we are focused on creating captivating and unique experiences that bring people together and create share-worthy moments for our visitors," said Sheila Jennings, General Manager, CF Toronto Eaton Centre. "The crowds have been incredible over the past two years and the energy has been absolutely electric. This year, we're building on that energy with even more interactive elements to allow community members to take part in the momentous lighting of the tallest tree in the city."

This year, Cadillac Fairview (CF) is partnering with Starbucks Canada as a presenting sponsor to promote holiday cheer and goodwill. Starbucks has long had a place in CF shopping centres and shares in the commitment to bringing together communities across Canada. The holidays bring us together and to add to this festive tradition, Starbucks will be sharing holiday surprises with the crowd and offering a social media filter that will be unlocked at the event.


The highly anticipated CF Tree Lighting event provides a vibrant and memorable atmosphere for communities to come together to celebrate the start of the holiday season and Canadians can expect a heightened experience showcasing CF at its best. The national series kicks off at CF Toronto Eaton Centre, with five Tree Lighting events taking place from coast-to-coast. A second GTA tree lighting celebration will take place at CF Markville on Friday, November 16 commemorating the first-ever tree lighting at the shopping centre.
