The 12 best events in Toronto

If planning a visit to Canada’s largest city, plan for your itinerary to be as diverse as the city itself and make sure to time your trip to coincide with some of the best events in Toronto. One of North America’s most vibrant hubs, with plenty of fun things to do all year round, it is no surprise that nearly three million folks call Toronto home. That number actually doubles when including the surrounding commuter cities that make up the greater Toronto area. That’s a citizenry that is rather choosy when it comes to the arts, nightlife and restaurants scene that make up the spirit of the town—which means Toronto is a city of many film, theatre and food-related events that are highly influenced by the multicultural folks that live here. Think of the best events in Toronto as your chance to sample a slice of life from faraway countries without actually traveling there. And, even though this Canadian destination rests under a thick layer of snow for a third of the year, worry not: the energy never dips. Join in on the fun.
