Spring in Toronto is one of my favourite seasons. Warm days and cool nights (and the occasional snow flurry,) make Spring the best season to wear pretty much any outfit you have in your closet. But nothing’s worst than having a dope outfit and nowhere to go. So, go out and explore the city! Check out our top events to go to in Toronto this Spring:
While not as widely known as Taste of the Danforth, Feast on St. Clair has quickly become one of T.O’s most vibrant food tours. Recently, the St. Clair West Area has seen a food renaissance, with a variety of restaurants and specialty shops opening over the last couple of years. The event will start at STOPS Farmer’s Market allowing for attendees to have the chance to talk with farmers, food vendors and local artisans. Find tour dates here.
Craft beers have been all the rage for the past couple of years, so much so that LCBO has finally added an “Ontario Craft Beer” section to stores (what took so long?!). On May 5th, the North American Craft Beer Experience is sure to please all beer drinkers. From crisp Belgian-style wheat beers to extra hoppy IPAs, the North American Craft Beer Experience will feature the largest selection of craft beers from North America’s top independent breweries. Get tickets here.
Toronto really does come alive in the warmer months, the city has so much to offer! One of the best parts of living here are the festivals. From tech and culture to music and art, the 6ix has it all when it comes to festivals in the spring time. Below are just some of our favourites – get out there and find some more!
Nothing says spring like hitting up your local farmer’s market – perfect for finding locally grown food. Eating healthier can be a chore and going to the grocery store can be an expensive pain in the ass. With over 30 markets in the city, there is always a market within walking distance or a quick stop away via public transportation. Find Toronto’s best farmer’s markets here.
Shed some of that winter weight by participating in the Sporting Life 10K on May 8th. The retailer has become well known throughout the city for their popular charity run. Grab your friends and run for a cause! All proceeds from the run will help kids with cancer and other illnesses attend summer camp.
The Urban Capers are back at it again with another instalment of Murder at the ROM. If Clue was one of your favourite games growing up as a kid, this event is definitely for you. With clues hidden around the museum, you will work in groups of 2-6 to try and discover who killed the curator. First Clue: it was not Colonel Mustard in the library with a wrench.
If there was ever an event to “do it for the ‘gram,” it would be Doors Open Toronto. From May 28-29th, the event will give visitors a look behind the curtain to see what some of Toronto’s most culturally, architecturally and historically significant buildings have been reimagined in to.
It may be hard to tell lately, but it is getting hot up in the 6ix right now! With city council recently passing a vote to make Toronto a “Music City”.. Toronto’s local music scene is looking to take a huge step forward. With that said, we still get some of the world’s best and biggest acts. Although tickets are sold out for most of these shows, you may get lucky!
