Fall is our favourite season in the city! For your eyes only, our staff has put together a list of their top events and exhibitions for November. Check out these exciting ways to escape (or embrace) the colder air, from the west-end to downtown.
401 Richmond: Artist Proof Sale at Open Studio
There’s plenty of art at our sister building 401 Richmond (a fellow landmark building, also restored and managed by the Zeidler fam). Browse the many galleries, and check out an art sale at Open Studio, Canada’s leading printmaking centre! It’s a great opportunity to purchase affordable ($50-$400) artwork by local artists. It launches with a party, but the work is on display and for sale through December. See full details here.
Enercare Centre: The Royal Agricultural Fair & One Of A Kind Show
This Toronto landmark building is also in the fam, designed by Eb Zeidler, the father of the hotel’s founder and creative director Christina Zeidler. This November the Enercare centre hosts The One Of a Kind Show (November 21 – December 1), a unique shopping experience featuring handmade jewellery, home decor, food, art and more from more than 600 Canadian makers and artisans. If baby goats, butter tarts and local food are more your thing the centre will also be hosting the Royal Agricultural Fair from Nov 1-10!
The ROM: Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition
This show is the longest-running and most prestigious nature photography competition, offering glimpses of rare and diverse life on this planet. You’ll be awed by these spectacular, large scale images. See full details here.
The AGO: The Toronto Antiquarian Book Fair
Book lovers, take note. If you’re looking for a rare or antiquarian volume, don’t miss this top antique book fair taking place at the Art Gallery of Ontario, with more than 30 distinguished booksellers from across Canada and around the world. Learn more here.
Multiple Locations: 23rd Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival

Gladstone Hotel: It’s Holiday Market Season 🎄
We love local makers! Here at the hotel we host markets every month. This November check out the Wonder Holiday Markit and the Flipside Record Sale, one of the best Toronto community record sales with over 30,000 used vintage records in one room.
