Toronto’s 186th Birthday Party

Toronto’s 186th Birthday Party, Friday, March 6, 7:00pm – 10:00pm, Toronto’s First Post Office (260 Adelaide St. East), $10 TYHS members, $15 non-members. Tickets available here.

Each March 6th, Toronto’s First Post Office and the Town of York Historical Society celebrate the City of Toronto’s birthday in the heart of the Old Town! This year, we will be celebrating at Toronto’s First Post Office, with music and tales of Old Toronto.

Of course, it wouldn’t be March 6th without the popular Old Town Silent Auction, featuring many of our favourite local businesses!

We’ll be featuring food from your favourite St. Lawrence Market vendors, and there will be a cash bar.

Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter @TOs1stPO, and this event #TOs186th to find out more about our performers, food and drink sponsors, silent auction donors and lots, and event sponsors.

We will also be listing more here, closer to the event.

But don’t delay! Tickets are strictly limited. You must be an existing Town of York Historical Society member for member pricing, but if you need to join or renew, simply give us a call to join and purchase your ticket at the same time. Call Zoe at 416-865-1833 x4 to purchase your ticket by phone.

We appreciate the support of many community partners in this fundraiser, including our members, neighbours, and friends who purchase tickets to our annual celebration. Proceeds from this event benefit the Town of York Historical Society and Toronto’s First Post Office, a museum and National Historic Site. The Town of York Historical Society researches, interprets, and promotes the history of the Town of York and early Toronto, and fosters the preservation of the Town of York’s surviving built environment.
