Just because it’s September doesn’t mean all the fun has left Toronto.
September brings us the return of pumpkin (everything) season, along with some great events and festivals taking place around the city. So don’t give up on summer just yet, check out some of these and fill your September social calendar with more goodness than a pumpkin spice latte.
What: Fan Expo Canada is in its 22nd year, and is the largest comics, sci-fi, horror, anime and gaming event in Canada. The 4-day event will feature panels with legends such as Stan Lee and Kate Mulgrew. Of course, Cosplay is optional.
What: The Toronto International BuskerFest for Epilepsy Awareness is hitting the beach this year. Besides a new location and dates, there will be no advance schedules, and the events will be spontaneous throughout each day.
Where: Woodbine Park, Cowell Ave at Lakeshore Boulevard
What: There’s still time! If you haven’t checked out this year’s EX yet – you have until the 5th of September to ride the coaster, win the massive stuffed animals, and eat all the delicious treats. So Let’s Go To the EX!
What: One of the biggest festivals of the year takes place this month, and there is nothing like it. Make sure to check out at least some of the Toronto International Film Festival – if not for the movies, at least for those stars.
What: An incredible line up of musical talent at this year’s Toronto Urban Roots Fest (TURF) with Jimmy Eat World, Death Cab for Cutie, James Bay, Barenaked Ladies and so much more. The 3-day festival includes fest passes or individual day tickets.
