We all know that Toronto is getting to be a pretty expensive city to not only live in, but also do things in. Restaurants, theatre tickets, even museum passes seem to cost an arm and a leg so whenever you have the option to snag a freebie, we say: TAKE IT. Because Toronto is such a big city, we have our fair share of free February events to enjoy when our wallets are tight or running on empty.
Here are 8 free Toronto events to check out this February:
Comedy on College – February 4, 11, 18, 25
Everyone loves a good laugh, right? Check out Comedy on College this month in our city’s Little Italy neighbourhood. You’ll enjoy a mix of super talented, up and coming comedians as well as tasty eats and beer — what’s not to love?
