Toronto Events Listing for July 3 - 5, 2015Happy Belated Canada Day! It may not feel like it (at least for me), but it's another weekend in Toronto. For those who had a day or two or more off this week, the weekend came quick and it's full of great events to keep the Canada Day celebration spirit going. And for those that didn't get a chance to enjoy Canada Day, it's the perfect time to celebrate our Nation's birthday (belatedly) and of course summer!
Here are my top picks for fun and fabulous things to do in Toronto!
Salsa on St. Clair happens on Saturday and Sunday. A friend was telling me about this event a few days ago and it sounded like so much fun! Dancing in the street, with hundreds of other people, street vendors, and food! I definitely want to check this one out!
Another street fest happening on St. Clair, just several blocks away, is Corso Italia Mercato. Celebrating all things Italian - there will be street performers, art, shopping, and food.
Like movies? The Toronto Beaches Film Festival kicks off this Saturday at the Fox.
Really like movies? The Christie Pits Film Festival begins this Sunday and will runs every Sunday until August 23rd.
Arts & Culture:
A great way to Celebrate Canada Day is to visit two great Canadian artists. The Emily Carr and Stephen Andrews exhibits are still running at the AGO. Make sure to check them out before they are gone!
Afrofest - Canada's largest annual African music fest takes over Woodbine Park this weekend. Drumming performances and dance, as well as theatre, workshops, and of course food vendors will be taking place this year. Admission is free!
