4 Instagram-Centric Pop-Ups To Visit In Toronto

Pop-up exhibits aren’t anything new, but Torontonians and city visitors have more of an excuse than ever to strike a pose.

Instagram-friendly pop-ups happening across the city, and exaggerated props and eye-popping visuals are just a couple of things you’ll be able to enhance your ‘gram with. Whether you’re more of a ’90s fan, a dreamer, or nature lover, there’s a picture perfect installation on this list for you.

Here are four Toronto Instagram pop-ups to visit for amazing photos:

HideSeek

Inspired by childhood nostalgia, HideSeek is every ’90s kid’s dream. The pop-up, located at 1305 Dundas St. West, spans 7,000-square-feet and is divided into 12 immersive rooms. From giant bubbles and lego blocks, cereal and cotton candy, each room will make you forget about your everyday adult life and bring out the kid in you! The pop-up is open from now until June 2, and tickets can be purchased online for $25 (+ tax/fees).

Utopia Toronto

If the ’90s aren’t your thing, then hit up a pop-up that’s a little more nature-centric for your next selfie. Visitors can stop by Utopia from now until July 31 for a self-guided tour of the Kensington Market-based exhibit. With 8 rooms — including a rose covered swing, a room full of twinkling lights and umbrellas, a giant clam shell, and more — you’re sure to score yourself a super Instagram-worthy picture here (within a one hour time limit, of course). The organizers suggest purchasing your ticket ($24.99 for adults, $19.99 for students, and $9.99 for kids) online as they limit the amount of visitors per day. Visit the exhibit at 144 Augusta Ave.

DREAM SPACE by Anthony Ricciardi

A drive to Yorkdale Shopping Centre is worth it if you’re looking to up your Instagram game. Imagined by Toronto-based artist Anthony Ricciardi, the DREAM SPACE exhibit has two parts. When visitors arrive, they’re greeted by an open gallery space where they can shop and browse original artwork by Ricciardi. But hidden in the back is where the Instagram-gold awaits. Featuring 12 large-scale interactive installations, visitors are invited to live out their dreams. Notable installations include a pit full of money, a waterfall of playing cards, and a wall where visitors can share their goals and ambitions. The grand opening of the exhibit is April 12 and it’ll stay open until July. Tickets to the interactive area are $15 (children under 5 are free), but the front gallery is completely free to browse!

Dinner With A View

This one-of-a-kind experience is a photo-op and dinner in one. Located underneath the Gardiner Expressway at the Bentway, Dinner With A View is a pop-up dining experience that sees guests eat in picture perfect domes with a view of the CN Tower. Dates for the event are limited and tickets are pricey — $149.99 reserves you the dome, while dinner and drinks are sold separately. But if you’re that dedicated to the ‘gram, it’s just a small price to pay. Dinner With A View is in Toronto until May 2.
