Illuminating Events at CN Tower

It’s a challenge to make events stand out in Toronto. But as many organizers can attest, holding a meeting or event atop the city’s tallest landmark is a good place to start.

The CN Tower has earned a reputation as one of the region’s most unique venues and thanks to its mix of unique spaces, top-tier catering and cuisine, and innovative audio, video, and lighting options, the sky-high event destination is sure to wow.

“The CN Tower continues to define the Toronto skyline,” says Marc Dorfman, Director of Food, Beverage and Sales at the CN Tower. “We’re proud to be a gathering place that makes that kind of lasting impression and can elevate any event.”

Taking it to the top

While the CN Tower’s influence on Toronto’s skyline is undeniable, it’s the unique meeting and event spaces and in-house services throughout that make the Tower a go-to destination. Event spaces within the Tower can be adapted to meet any organizer’s vision while floor-to-ceiling walls provide their guests with awe-inspiring city views. Moreover, CN Tower’s culinary team can work closely with planners to prepare delicious menus for everything from intimate wedding dinners to large-scale corporate galas, cocktail receptions, fundraisers, and beyond.

“When you host an event at the CN Tower, your guests will enjoy fresh, sustainable cuisine prepared on-site,” says Dorfman. “Whether for coffee breaks and pastries or three-course fine dining, our culinary team shows off the best of Canadian flavours from coast-to-coast-to-coast.”

Importantly, CN Tower is committed to ensuring every guest feels welcome. To that end, the Tower is Accessibility Certified Gold and is continually committed to delivering a barrier-free and inclusive environment for everyone who enters.


A beacon for all

Sustainability, diversity, and inclusion are guiding philosophies for the CN Tower team. They are what drive on-site chefs, maintenance professionals, and event staff to implement sustainable materials and practices. They also focus the team on ensuring the venue and its amenities are accessible to everyone who comes through its doors.

Outside, the CN Tower’s interactive lighting program plays a more visible role in the venue’s community-building mission. The Tower is equipped with an array of coloured lights that can be programmed to display vibrant light shows, patterns, or images that can be seen and enjoyed from kilometres away. And over the years, many causes and charity organizations have leveraged this colourful technology to attract city-wide attention to their cause.

“The CN Tower’s lighting system appears simple in its presentation, but we have a great deal of control over the lighting, both in terms of colour and in terms of how the system locates and controls individual lights,” notes Dorfman. “That allows us to not only put on colourful shows for the public, but boost awareness for important social and cultural events.”

CN Tower’s lighting program is dedicated to amplifying charity organizations throughout the community and across Canada.
