Toronto’s Hot Summer Events

The city of Toronto is one of the most amazing places in the summer. It is alive and buzzing with festival and events happening pretty much every weekend. I am a big fan of these types of outings mainly because of all of the interesting people you come to meet. Plus who doesn’t love dressing up for an event?

There are a few events I recommend checking out if you’re around the city. Here are my top 4 and why…

Luminato June 14-23
Luminato is an amazing festival that celebrates the arts. From dancing to live theatre performances, this is one event you will not want to miss. Typically there are a few concerts that are put on during the festival that are free to the public in David Pecaut Square. This year happens to be K-os and Serene Ryder- Two Canadian powerhouses that I am a fan of.

r-TORONTO-LITTLE-ITALY-large570
Taste of Little Italy June 14-16
Walk College Street and eat your face off. This is how I like to explain Taste of Little Italy. The streets are covered with people, food, games, and entertainment. It’s fun for the whole family. The nightlife heats up and prime for anyone looking to have a good time.
Check out the line-up events HERE.

'Looper' Premiere - TIFF 2012
TIFF September 5-15
The Toronto International Film Festival is always a great time. Celebrities can be spotted everywhere you look in Yorkville. The films are usually pretty great and if you’re lucky you could find yourself sitting next to Clooney or Pitt.

PRIDE 2013 June 21-30
Lastly PRIDE. Who doesn’t love a parade full of half naked men? They may not swing my way but I still love them. PRIDE is a great festival that celebrates freedom of expression in many ways. People from all over the world come out for the parade. It is a great time.

These are just a few of my favourite. There’s still Hot Docs, World Short Film Festival, NXNE, Stratford Festival, Taste of Danforth, Woofstock… and the list goes on.
