Notable Now Toronto: March 14, 2014

Notable Fashion Week Designer Series
Date: March 17-21
Location: Notable Lounge, 476 Richmond St. W.

For four nights during World MasterCard Fashion Week we’ll be opening our doors for the very first time in order to welcome you to the Notable Lounge. Not just you though, we’ll also be bringing along some of the most notable Canadian fashion designers in the industry (Mackage, Bustle Clothing, Jessica Jensen, and Aime) for four über-exclusive fireside-style sessions. Want to have a drink with your favourite designer? Of course you do. We’re only allowing 20 young professionals to attend each event so head to and sign up today.

Fashion Week After-Parties
Date: March 19, 20
Location: The Citizen, Quad Spin, EFS

Looking for more party and less runway? Funny, we were thinking the same thing. Which is why Notable also made sure we had exclusive access to some of the hottest designer after-parties taking place during World MasterCard Fashion Week. If you want to dance at the centre of the Canadian fashion industry, you’re going to want to be dancing here. So send your name to for a chance to earn exclusive access to the Mackage after party on Wednesday and head here to check out how to get access to other fashion week after-parties like Bustle Clothing and EFS. 

Canadian Cheese Awards
Date: April 7
Location: St. Lawrence Market 

We know this isn’t until April but we’re telling you now because, well, cheese. Also the fact that only 500 tickets are being sold means you better get on this faster than mold on blue cheese. 76 producers from Newfoundland to British Columbia submitted 291 cheeses for judging and yet just 32 awards will be handed out, including the much-coveted Cheese of the Year. Held only once every two years, this is your chance to taste the best cheese this country has to offer.

Midnight Market
Date: March 21
Location: 2nd Floor Events, 461 King St. W.

Toronto’s favourite late-night shopping event is celebrating its one-year anniversary by featuring more vendors than ever before as well as DJs, dinner options, and all your favourite local vendors. Head hear to peruse what T.O.’s newest and coolest small businesses have to offer. Pick up the perfect gift with a cocktail in hand and a mini lobster pie from Scratch Pie Co. ‘Cause who shops without a mini lobster pie?  

Chicken Wing Festival
Date: May 4
Location: Daniels Spectrum, 585 Dundas St E

After the giant debacle that was The Grilled Cheese Fest, we don’t blame you for being a little hesitant at the sight of another food festival. But considering this is the Chicken Wing Festival’s third year and they’ve received strong reviews for the past two, we’re willing to step out on a… wing. It may not be for another six weeks but general admission has already sold out. Don’t worry, there are still ways to find out whose wing is king – but you’ll have to check that out online.

One Of A Kind
Date: March 26
Location: Direct Energy Centre,   

You know what people do in spring? They get married and have birthdays, or just generally enjoy receiving gifts. And you know what you get the person or couple who has everything? You get them something there’s only one of. That’s where the four-day One Of A Kind Show comes in. Featuring more than 450 artisans working with various mediums like glass, ceramics, textile, and wood, we’re sure you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for. Even if you don’t know what it is until you see it.
