Get Your Art Here
It starts with the all night art party that is Nuit Blanche on September 30, 2017. Stay up, wander around and fuel your creative spirit. Or find the latest in modern art to purchase as Art Toronto brings top galleries and dealers in from all over the world to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre October 27 to 30.
Design, Innovation and Technology on Display
From September 28 to October 8, an abandoned factory will be turned into a hive of technology and world-changing ideas. EDIT is an immersive expo-meets-festival built to showcase how design is combating global hunger, solving medical issues and improving our future. Elevate Toronto is another inaugural event focused on innovation and runs from September 12 to 14. Celebrating diversity and inclusion, the festival brings together entrepreneurs and innovators with keynotes, inspirational talks and curated high-value networking.
Major League Sports
Readings are just part of the attraction as the International Festival of Authors unfolds lakeside at Harbourfront Centre. Interviews, roundtables, signings and the PEN Canada benefit are all part of this 11-day celebration of the written word. Don’t forget to take in the 1-day book fair, Word On the Street on September 24.
Craft Brew Season
Although technically Toronto Oktoberfest starts in September, who wants to get technical when it comes to celebrating beer? Not us. Don your dirndl and start practising your polka for September 29 and 30. If you miss Oktoberfest, no need to cry over spilt pilsner, check out this Ultimate Toronto Beer Crawl for year-round options.
Agricultural Fair and Chocolate Festival
The largest combined indoor agricultural fair and international equestrian competition in the world takes over Exhibition Place when The Royal comes to town November 3 to 12, 2017. Food is at the heart of the fair, as top chefs create and compete and you learn about the journey from farm to table. For a foodie haven of a different sort, The Toronto Chocolate Festival is a November-long ode to the dark, creamy arts with an assortment of events on offer across the city.
