Welcome to Markham!

Just north of Toronto, Markham is home for many commuters who work in Toronto, but prefer a smaller community to call home. Markham is made up of four communities: Markham, Milliken, Thornhill and Unionville. The city enjoys a mixture of industry from large corporate headquarters to smaller farming communities. Although Markham lives in the shadows of its southern neighbour, quite literally since it borders Toronto, Markham celebrates its individual character. A number of festivals and events are regularly held, including the Markham Fair with its entertaining events and exhibits, and the sweet sounding Markham Village Music Festival. Art appreciators may tour the Varley Art Gallery, which houses works by regional and international artists, as well as an interesting collection from F.H. Varley, a member of the Group of Seven. The Markham Centre for Performing Arts offers theatre, dance and music performances regularly. Shoppers and diners may wish to retreat to Markham Village, a real working village complete with retail stores and restaurants.
