Santa Claus Parade Road Closures in Toronto 2015

Santa Claus Parade road closures will affect numerous streets in Toronto this Sunday, November 15. While the closures don't get underway until 8 a.m. police will be removing cars parked along the route as early as 6 a.m.

Road closures start at 8 a.m. with Bloor Street closed from Ossington to Christie, followed by Christie to Bathurst at 10 a.m., and Bathurst to Bay Street at 10:45 a.m.

Avenue Road/Queen's Park Circle will be closed from from Davenport to College as of 10:45 a.m. University will be shut down between College and Dundas by 11 a.m., and from Dundas to Front at 11:15 a.m.

Meanwhile, Wellington will be closed from University to Jarvis at 11: 30 a.m. throughout the duration of the parade, while Front will be closed from Bay to Jarvis Street at 11:45 a.m.

Arriving to the parade early is a virtual necessity, but at least there will be some extra entertainment in the form of The Holly Jolly Fun Run, which takes place along the route about 45 minutes before the parade.

The parade runs until roughly 4 p.m., after which time the closures will be lifted. For more info, check out the their website.


While the subway will be at full service for the Santa Claus Parade, it's worth noting that Line 1 will be closed between St. George and St. Clair West stations on Saturday, November 14 due to track work.


Over and above the special closures this weekend, construction projects across Toronto result in numerous other road restrictions across the city. For a comprehensive list of such closures, you can consult the official map maintained by the City of Toronto (also available as a PDF.)
