Things To Do In Toronto This Weekend

Clear your schedules, it’s time for things to do in Toronto this weekend!

It’s Wednesday, and that means we’re filling your social calendar for the weekend with a list of the events we’re excited about in the city this weekend. If you’re looking for things to do in Toronto with your friends and family, you need to read on.

Midnight MRKT

Midnight MRKT

This market is basically one of my favourite things in Toronto, and we hard ever get there these days. This Friday Midnight MRKT returns after summer break at 2nd Floor Events from 9pm-1am, featuring music, baked goods, delicious treats, amazing vendors, and of course some late night shopping. Get more details on their Facebook Page here.

ETSY Made in Canada Pop Up

ETSY Made in Canada Pop Up Market

Handmade is pretty much my favourite part of life, so I always keep an eye out for ETSY events in Toronto. This Saturday, September 27th, you can hit their popup market at MaRS Discovery District (101 College St) from 10-4. Shop local and support locally made goods (so in other words, buy gorgeous stuff and feel good about it)! Check out their lookbook and get psyched about the event here. To find more about the market go to the event page here.

Toronto Antique and Vintage Market

Toronto Antique and Vintage Market

The new Toronto Antique & Vintage Market is the best in antiques, vintage & retro all in one venue! You can find amazing decor ideas, one-of-a-kinds, retro kitchenware (the best kind), vintage designer handbags(!!!), accent pieces, jewellery and more, so you’d be crazy to miss it. Check it out this Saturday & Sunday at the Queen Elizabeth Building at the Exhibition Place. Get details on times, admission, and a discount price here.

Canada’s Baking and Sweets Show

Canada Baking and Sweets Show

In case you don’t understand how jacked I am about this, it’s a trade show for BAKING and SWEETS. Those are my two favourite things, and you get to watch other people do it (that’s like the equivalent of a spa weekend for me, I could watch Food Network for days) and sample everything like I can’t get over it. The show is happening all weekend at the Toronto Congress Centre and features demonstrations by pro bakers (!!!) on topics like vegan baking, Cake Boss Cakes (!!!!!!), the Wonut, and classes for kids! My excitement level is at a new high. Get details on their website here.

Walk to End Canine Cancer

Walk to End Canine Cancer

This Saturday is the second annual Walk to End Canine Cancer, sponsored by Smiling Blue Skies Rescue. Victoria volunteered at the event last year and said it was so much fun – as well as very moving. There was a “Blessing of the Dogs” which she was skeptical about but was actually really nice. Registration starts at 10am and the walk starts at noon – it’s amazing to see hundreds of dogs walking in one pack together! There’s a silent auction, a bunch of games, and a huge park for pet owners to mingle and play with their dogs! The event takes place at Kew Gardens, which is the park next to Kew Beach. Get some sponsors and/or some fellow pet lovers and bring your dogs down to help a wonderful cause! More details here.


And that’s it! Obviously we try to find all the cool things happening in Toronto but there is always SO MUCH to choose from, and I’m sure we miss some goodies. If you have something you think we should be at this weekend, leave it in the comments! We love checking out neat events (yes I said neat, I’m 90 years old inside).

Happy weekend planning!
