It’s hard to believe that we’re heading into the final (official) three weeks of Summer and that soon we’ll be substituting iced coffee and flip flops for pumpkin spice lattes and scarves.
With this in mind, no matter your taste, we want to make sure that you know what’s going on in the city so you can take advantage before it’s time to say so long sweet Summer. Here is your list of 7 things to do in Toronto before the Fall Solstice.
MAROON 5 AT BUDWEISER STAGE
Budweiser Stage, September 2nd
Toronto has been known to host some of music’s greats, and it’s safe to say that as a collective, we have missed live music and evenings on the lawn of Budweiser Stage. Maroon 5 will be taking the stage on September 2nd, so get your lighters out, crack open a $20 beer (worth it!) and enjoy being serenaded by Adam Levine.
TORONTO BLUE JAYS
Take me out to the ball game! Whether you’re in the nosebleeds or directly behind home plate, a night spent watching Toronto’s beloved baseball team is a great way to spend the last few days of summer. Fingers crossed the weather will be warm but crisp enough for the dome to remain open, but if not, thank goodness for a retractable roof!
FALL BEERFEST TORONTO
Bandshell Park, Exhibition Park, September 24 & 25
Brews, bites, and beats! Did someone say Beerfest? With hundreds of vendors and flavours of hops you didn’t even know existed, Shaggy will be performing on Saturday, and Dwayne Gretzky on Sunday, with both performances sure to be a party! This will be an outdoor, limited capacity event, so make sure to scoop your tickets soon!
The perfect sweet escape for those hazy dog days of summer, Hotel X has transformed their rooftop pool into a tropical oasis reminiscent of the Hamptons, Ibiza and St Tropez. Why not give yourself a gorgeous summer sendoff, poolside?
A cheap and cheerful treat with some of the most delightful views that Toronto has to offer. Whether on foot, in a car, or on a leisurely stroll by bicycle, the pier really has everything going on, from ice cream, to pool bars, trails and even park areas for a picnic. Check it out before it gets too chilly.
1 Canada’s Wonderland Drive, Vaughan
You are never too old or too boring to go to Canada’s Wonderland, and contrary to popular opinion, late summer is the perfect time to thrill seek and shove a fist-full of funnel cake at Ontario’s favourite playground; no long lines, more prizes to win and most importantly, more fun to be had!
Collective Arts Toronto, 777 Dundas Street West
Funky wine and juicy cider fans unite! With Special Guest and Founder of Revel Cider, Tariq Ahmed, this is the perfect event if you’re looking for an amazing night of natural wine, cider, spirits, food, and friendship! Included in the price of your ticket to this event is a four-product tasting of Revels world class wine, cider, and vermouth, an individual serving of our Chips and Pico, and your choice of tacos.
