As Canadians prepare for colder weather and summer vacation feels like a distant memory, comes a joy-filled pop-up experience that is sure to put a smile on your face and some extra hop in your step. HAPPY PLACE, an interactive, immersive exhibit with larger-than-life installations and multi-sensory themed rooms, is on a mission to spread happiness across the world. Making its first international stop in Toronto, ON, happiness comes in the form of the world’s largest indoor confetti dome with half a million pieces of confetti, a 20-foot-tall double rainbow that encourages visitors to jump into a pot of happiness, seven-foot stilettos made of a million candies, and a superbloom room with over 40,000 immersive flowers. HAPPY PLACE features 20,000 square feet of whimsical spaces and happy moments.
Having taken Los Angeles and Chicago by storm, HAPPY PLACE has been embraced by more than 200,000 visitors from the likes of Adele, Kourtney Kardashian, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kerry Washington, Sabrina Carpenter, Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis, Travis Barker, Hilary Duff, JoJo Siwa, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and many more. International artists DJ Marshmello and Anne-Marie shot a video for their smash hit “Friends” at HAPPY PLACE, now seen by over 100 million viewers.
The inspiration behind HAPPY PLACE comes from its founder, Jared Paul, who is on a mission to raise his three children surrounded by positivity and joy. At a time when so many unfortunate events are happening around the globe, HAPPY PLACE exists to provide an oasis for people to come together and embrace moments of happiness in their everyday lives.
“It has been the thrill of a lifetime to get to watch so many people enjoy what HAPPY PLACE has to offer. It’s amazing to see people setting their problems aside and jumping feet first into our pot of happiness and feeling the love when they walk into our hugs and kisses room. We cannot wait to launch at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre and couldn’t have dreamed of a better home this winter and holiday season.”
Beyond bringing visually stunning rooms to Torontonians, Paul strives for each HAPPY PLACE stop to make a positive impact in the communities in which the exhibit makes its new home. HAPPY PLACE’s own lemonade stand partners with a local charity in each city and donates all net proceeds to support their cause. With over $50,000 raised so far in Los Angeles and Chicago, HAPPY PLACE is excited to announce its partner in Toronto soon. Partnering with Live Nation Canada, HAPPY PLACE is working with local Toronto artists and designers, along with international creators, brands and influencers, to present interactive and memorable installations curated to Capture Your Happy.
HAPPY PLACE has open its bright yellow doors at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre, and GA tickets are now on sale at HappyPlace.me/tickets.
