Happy weekend, Toronto!
From the Beaches International Jazz Fest to a ton of cultural events and a daytime music party, we’re stoked to head into this summer weekend! And to top it off, there’s an outdoor movie screening Sunday evening to wind it all down.
We’re ready for the weekend! Check out some of these events with us.
Celebrating 30 years of racing on the streets of Toronto, the Honda Indy Toronto is taking over in July. It’s fast and furious in the city this weekend.
The 2016 edition of the Franco-Fête will be a musicfest in the best tradition, spotlighting some of today’s top Francophone artists. The family friendly event is in its 34th year, and all is free!
Guns N’ Roses
What year is this again? Legendary rock & rollers Guns N’ Roses are back on tour after years of ups and downs, and line up changes. After headlining Coachella earlier this year, the boys (including Slash and Axl Rose) are bringing their “Not in This Lifetime…” rock show to Toronto this month.
Saturday is officially rock band night in Toronto. Old school Brits Def Leppard is also in town the same night as Guns N’ Roses – what are the chances? Having also gone through ups and downs, and a few line up changes, these guys are legendary for a reason. This show should prove just that.
