One of my favourite things about spring is the way the city comes alive. The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and Torontonians are out in full force enjoying the milder weather. For many of us, checking out fantastic local events is a big part of the fun. From art and cultural displays to retail therapy and incredible cuisine, there’s something for everyone at Toronto’s spring festivals and happenings this year.
If you’re looking to have some fun in the city over the next couple of months, here are five Must-Attend Toronto Events in Spring 2020 you should check out…
1) Canadian Music Week
Audiophiles, this one’s for you. Whether you’re into rock or pop music, hip hop or electronic, you’re bound to find more than a few live performances that will excite you at Canadian Music Week. Now in its 38th year, this annual celebration features hundreds of bands. It’s the perfect opportunity to check out some homegrown talent in venues across the city. The festival takes place from May 19th to 23rd.
2) Foodalicious Toronto
Is there any better way to celebrate spring than by sampling some fresh, creatively-prepared dishes? This June 13th and 14th, Foodalicious is the perfect place to do just that. The grounds of Downsview Park will be packed with some of the city’s best food trucks and vendors, so be sure to bring your appetite! You’ll also find a variety of family-friendly attractions to keep everyone entertained, from live music to carnival games.
3) The One of a Kind Show
Looking for some truly unique items to complement your condo or lifestyle? Believe me when I say, you’ll find what you’re looking for at the One of a Kind Show. March 25th to 29th, Enercare Centre will play host to over 500 local artisans and craftspeople. From handmade pottery and kitchenware to carefully-crafted timepieces and artisanal foods, this exhibition is full of surprises.
4) Images Festival
If you have an interest in outside-the-box film and visual art, the Images Festival should be on your radar. Chances are, you’ve never experienced anything like this before. Independent film and contemporary art come together in innovative ways this April. Check out cinema presentations, gallery installations, and a variety of other on and off-screen works at venues around Toronto from the 16th to 27th.
5) Hot Docs International Documentary Festival
It’s the largest documentary festival in North America, and it takes place right here in Toronto. From April 30th to May 10th, the Hot Docs International Film Festival will present over 200 films from Canada and beyond. This year, the annual event will include a tribute to award-winning filmmaker Raymonde Pronvencher, a selection of films from Northern Ireland, and much more. You can learn all about the festival on the Hot Docs website.
While Toronto is a great place to call home in any season, the city is especially vibrant when the snow melts and everything is in bloom. So throw on a comfortable pair of shoes and check out some of the fun-filled events on the town this spring!
