When: June 7th - August 16th, Every Wednesday
Where: Yorkville Village
Now open, the newly designed Yorkville Village offers a distinguished variety of contemporary brands and unique boutiques in a vibrant and beautifully designed environment.

July 5th - 16th, 2017
Where: Venues around the Annex and Toronto
The Toronto Fringe Festival is back and is bringing Canada’s best theatre talent to the Annex from July 5th - 16th. Over 150 productions will be brought to life from both well known, and undiscovered artists. Tickets are very affordable so come out and see some rising artists!


August 20th, 2017
Where: Venues around the Annex/Yorkville and Toronto
Open Streets is back! Open Streets TO is the city’s largest free recreation program, unlike any other in Toronto or Canada. They've created a world-class program that connects our diverse neighbourhoods and people across the city. A summer favourite, this day sees major streets in downtown shut down and opened to the public. This initiative promotes physical activity and has Torontonians exploring neighbourhoods like the Annex/Yorkville. Different community partners have programming all over the city and allow visitors to engage in ways unique to the neighbourhood.
