Awesome Toronto events happening October 9-11

Toronto’s getting on board with Halloween, with some haunted events happening this weekend, plus a horrendously foul-mouthed improv show and none other than an all-Bey dance part-ay. Here are some of the awesome events happening this weekend, October 9-11.


Bey Bey Dance Party

Get out those bodysuits and brush up on your Single Ladies dance – this party is seriously just a Beyonce dance party and it goes until 2 am!

When to go: Friday, 10 pm-2 am

Where at? Studio Bar, 824 Dundas

Tickets: $10


Haunted Toronto Scavenger Hunt

The scary version of a scavenger hunt sounds just plain fun. Bring your flashlight and a teddy bear for comfort – instead of finding hidden items along the way, you’re solving clues and digging up answers to creepy and funny questions. Learn about TO’s haunted history, like the insane asylum that now houses politicians. Teams are two to six people.

When to go: Friday, 7-9:3- pm

Where at? TBA

Tickets: $30

Istvan Kantor’s House of Horror

Like an art exhibit gone wrong, this Friday night event happens in an apartment that’s been transformed into an art showing of sorts, but according to the description: “New works will be created in a performance at the opening. There will be blood.” So there you go. There’s something about signed, discarded mattresses, too.

When to go: Friday, 6-9 pm for the opening performance, and Saturday and Sunday, 2-6 pm

Where at? 97 Walmer Rd. Apt. 1

Tickets: unknown



This improv performance under Bad Dog Theatre pits four against one as they, a truly uncouth tribe attempt to turn the last fine improvisor standing to the dark side. It’s called a no-rules improv cabaret, and could be worth a few laughs.

When to go: Saturday, 9:30 pm

Where at? Bad Dog Theatre, 875 Bloor W

Tickets: $10

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.
