World Alzheimer’s Day
Date: September 21
Location: The World

September is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month and this Sunday is the focal point of awareness efforts from Alzheimer’s organizations around the world. In Canada alone, about 500,000 people suffer from Alzheimer’s each year. Talk about it, get involved, and donate. Want a reminder? No problem, just take a look at the CN Tower – it’ll be lit purple, the international colour associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

Steam Whistle’s Oktoberfest Party
Date: September 20
Location: Steam Whistle Roundhouse

Break out your lederhosen and your tubas and get ready to drink from mugs three times the size of your face – it’s Oktoberfest, people. Steam Whistle always throws great jams and we expect this to be no different. For $30, from 2pm-11pm, enjoy authentic German food, folk music, and entertainment while you hoist steins of Steam Whistle Pilsner. You might not be German, but that doesn’t mean you can’t party like them.

Toronto Garlic Festival
Date: September 21
Location: Evergreen Brick Works

If you love garlic and you’re looking for effective ways to fend off close-talkers, this is the festival for you. This event features farmers, gardeners, chefs, home cooks, scientists, and health experts from the GTA and Southern Ontario sharing all the goodness of garlic. Taking a page from Forrest Gump, they’ll have garlic chocolate, garlic fudge, garlic brittle, garlic ice cream, black garlic, pickled garlic, garlic jelly, garlic pickles, garlic soda, garlic braids, garlic pesto… well, you get the idea.

Food Truck Festival Ontario
Date: September 21
Location: Ontario Place

Samosas and tacos and burgers, oh my! This Sunday, the FTFO “brings the most mouthgasmic food trucks to one place so you can eat like a foodstar for one day.” Munchie machines from tons of great culinary brands will be there: Food Dudes, Blue Donkey Streatery, Burgatory, and Hollywood Cone, to name a few. So loosen up your wallets and your belts – things are about to get real.   

Toronto Vintage Clothing Show
Date: September 20
Location: Metro Toronto Convention Center

If you love to go retro or need some material for a Halloween costume, it’s worth swinging by this mega-display of clothing, accessories, and jewelry from Canada’s top independent vintage fashion vendors. For only $10 you can take the proverbial cheesewagon back to the old school and catch a breather from the world of the corporate wardrobe. Whether you’re there to wear or stare, it’s a great way to spend a few Saturday afternoon hours while supporting Canadian fashion.

Notable & Apothic Wines present: Discovery Sessions
Date: October 1
Location: Brassaii

From 6-9pm will be hosting an exclusive evening at Brassaii for some ample networking, a glass of Apothic wine, and signature Brassaii eats – with a side of seasoned insight from Larry Rosen, CEO of Harry Rosen Inc. Larry will share his background and his thoughts on entrepreneurship and business while Notable shares their favourite wine and King St. cuisine. As a forward-thinking, wine-sipping YP, this is one event you can’t afford to miss.
