Awesome Toronto events happening July 8-10

What’s better than a massive foodie event happening all over TO?

Two massive foodie events.

This weekend brings you TO Food Fest in Scarborough and Summerlicious which happens all over Toronto. Plus, you can catch the last weekend of the Toronto Fringe Festival’s awesomeness, and check out some amazing art, photography, music and (surprise, surprise) food at the Entertainment District Art Crawl. All of these are just some of the awesome Toronto events happening this weekend, July 8-10.


Toronto Fringe Festival

Ah, the Fringe Festival. Bringing you the best and sometimes the worst of the wonderful and weird world of theatre, art and comedy. Discover new acts, socialize at the Fringe Club behind Honest Ed’s and catch one or dozens of the more than 1,000 performances happening over the weekend. This, of course, is your last weekend to catch the action.

When to go: Friday, Saturday and Sunday, various times

Where at? various venues

Tickets: up to $12 for adults, $5 for kids


Entertainment District Art Crawl

Designers, food trucks, DJs and, of course, art, are all coming together in the Entertainment District on Friday. The event is sponsored by Cirque du Soleil Luzia (tickets are up for grabs), so you know it’s going to be good.

When to go: Friday 11 am-late

Where at? David Pecault Square, 215 King W

Tickets: admission is free



Fellow foodies of TO, welcome to heaven. Summerlicious 2016 dishes up prix-fixe meals at well over 200 restaurants around the city, so you can taste a ton of new foods by tons of new chefs. Bring a friend and wear your buffet pants.

When to go: Friday through July 24

Where at? check website for participating restaurants

Tickets: lunches are $18, $23 or $28; dinners are $28, $38 or $48


TO Food Fest

Basically, a great way to eat awesome food by some of TO’s best chefs and food vendors. Even though it technically happens in Scarborough, this sounds too good not to include in our weekly round up of TO events. It’s days of awesome feeds and bevvies that cooked up Teppanyaki ice cream, stuffed lobster rolls and Asian-style macarons in the past.

When to go: Saturday noon-11 pm, and Sunday noon-6 pm

Where at? Chinese Cutural Centre of Greater Toronto, 5183 Sheppard E, Scarborough

Tickets: admission is free, but a $2 donation is encouraged

Erin Cardone

Born on the Prairies, Erin Cardone grew up knowing there was more to life than canola fields and AAA Alberta Angus. So she escaped, living in Europe and Australia, white-knuckling it through plates of calf brains and raw horse meat, and learning languages she can't remember anymore. After a stint as a jaded, skeptical journalist, she changed tack and began writing rather awesome blogs and showing businesses that advertising is dead, so long live social media, with her businesses Legendary Social Media. She now splits her time between various Canadian cities, Costa Rica and wherever else the wind blows.
