Happening Weekend: Summer Has Unofficially Arrived!

Toronto Weekend Events Listing for Victoria Day Long Weekend 2016

It's finally here - Victoria Day Long Weekend! Even though the official first day of summer isn't until June, the long weekend in May is the 'unofficial' start to summer in Toronto and the rest of Canada. People cram into their cars for a traffic packed drive to cottages or jam onto an available patio that has any sun shining on it. And there are plenty of fabulous events happening across Toronto to help you celebrate not only the long weekend, but the unofficial start of the summer season!
