An interesting place to visit to see how life was like in the olden days. The Christmas theme was evident in some buildings, but not as much as I had witnessed a few years ago. The interpreters/staff were well informed and eager to show their skills or answer any questions. Lots to photograph inside and out. Cameras are allowed in... More

During my recent trip to Toronto I was invited by my host family during Christmas to see both McMichael and the Black Creek Pioneer Village. Having seen McMichael time only left one hour to visit the Black Creek Pioneer Village, which can be done. Only a few of the houses were closed. However, we enjoyed the open ones very much,... More

Black Creek Pioneer Village is a part of Toronto History, that is well worth visiting. Better yet, for those living in the GTA, why not check out volunteering at the Village. The original Strong family (the family to whom the property originally belonged) homes and barn are still standing and are a focal point of the Village.

The village is small compared to others in Canada, but it offers a very nice glimpse into the distant past. Many activities are interactive, and the volunteers (that are dressed in the fashion of the time) are very passionate and knowledgeable. A very fun way to spend the day!

Every year we visit Pioneer Village before Christmas to get into the holiday spirit. Buy fresh bread, some beer and enjoy the festive decorations. This year was the most disappointing in years. We arrived early so we could order bread only to find out it would be 3.5 hrs. There is not that much to do to so we did... More

Hadn't been here for years and went to check out Christmas by Lamplight. Even without the blanket of snow to add some charm, it was a lovely evening. Basically, you experience life back then by wandering from house to shop to chapel, etc., while you experience holiday-themes activities such as ornament making, Christmas treats (the mincemeat tarts are awesome!), puppet...

The best Christmas event I have ever attend. It felt very realistic like Christmas in 1800s. Beautiful decorations, great carols, chestnuts roasting on an open fire, hot chocolate, candy canes, square dancing, very nice old fashion dinner. I love it

We love Black Creek all year round but the Christmas by Lamp Light is a favourite! The village is decked out for Christmas and each "house" and "shop" is open with Christmas activities. We particularly enjoyed meeting Santa; dancing in the inn & listening to stories in the woodwork shop. Great visit! Thank you!
