Christmas carols are playing, the snow is (occasionally) falling and holiday photos are being snapped. If you’re looking to get in on some festive fun, here’s a list of events on campus to get you in the Christmas spirit.
Shop the SLC
Ryerson’s largest annual craft market is back this year, with over 50 vendors showcasing unique handcrafted goods made by Ryerson students at the Student Learning Centre. Celebrate the holiday season with music and treats, and don’t forget to find that perfect gift for your loved one. Each day, the market features different vendors and homemade products, so you will be sure to find that special gift. Don’t forget to participate for the chance to win a gift bag full of products from a different vendor each day!
Come check out local talent from Nov. 25 to Nov. 29 in the SLC.
Bread & Butter: FCAD Marketplace
You’ll be sure to find a stocking stuffer or two at Ryerson Artspace’s annual fundraising exhibition and sale. Every year, this event features the work of Ryerson students, faculty, staff and alumni in support of emerging artist grants and exhibition programming. This year, creators are releasing a new edition of 100 per cent silk scarves, which will be on every mom’s Christmas list. Watch out for an array of raffle prizes and the holiday card collection!
Admission to Bread & Butter is free. The event runs from Nov. 28 to Dec. 15 at the Ryerson Artspace on Richmond Street.
Ryerson’s Annual Holiday Celebration
Get ready to embrace the Christmas spirit with hot chocolate, cookies and other seasonal treats at Ryerson’s Annual Holiday Celebration. There will be live piano music from Paul Butler and a special visit from Santa. As part of this event, non-perishable items are going to be gathered for a holiday food drive in support of Ryerson students in need.
This fun-filled event will be held from Dec. 19 to Dec. 21 in the Jorgenson Hall lobby.
Christmas with Beethoven
What better way is there to get into the holiday cheer than with some Christmas carols! Join Ryerson’s Oakham House Choir in a Christmas carol sing-a-long at Knox Presbyterian Church on Nov. 30 to get your vocal chords going! The program includes Beethoven’s Mass in C, Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on Christmas Carols and other Christmas favourites. Don’t waste time, get your tickets here before they sell out.
