Tourists commonly mistake Toronto to be Canada’s capital city. It’s hard to blame them: there’s so much going on in Toronto, sometimes it FEELS like the capital of our country. However, one thing we can definitely claim is that we’re Canada’s FESTIVAL capital!


The only thing “small” about the Small World Music Festival is how it makes the rest of the world seem so much closer. Four days of international music, featuring touring acts from Mali, Korea, Cuba, Ethiopia, Palestine, Spain, Estonia and more! Taking place from September 14 to 17 on multiple stages, this is a music lover’s dream. Details here.


A literary festival with a twist, Word on The Street will feature over 200 authors talking about their work, as well as the world’s largest outdoor book store! A Toronto staple since 1990, this year’s festival will feature Canadian icons like David Suzuki, Ron Sexsmith, Emma Donoghue and many, many more! On September 24, take your biggest book bag to Harbourfront Centre and revel in the literary! Full schedule available here.


An institution of both Canada and comedy, Just For Laughs returns to Toronto September 21 to 30. Featuring over ten days of HILARIOUS shows throughout the city, this year’s headliners include international hits like Bill Burr, John Mulaney, Ali Wong and Mike Birbiglia, successful podcasts like Guys we F***ed and My Favorite Murder, as well as local favourites like the incredibly funny Chris Locke and Pete Johansson. If you love to laugh, Just For Laughs should be on your bucket list. Check out the full schedule here.
