Free And Cheap Spring Activities In TorontoApr 13rd, 2017
Everyone loves cheap and free things, including our #FormulaHondaFamily! That is why we are helping you explore the best of Toronto without hurting your wallet.
Visiting High Park
There is no better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than by visiting the High Park during the cherry blossom season. From the end of April to early May, you can find the cherry trees blossoming bright all over for you to admire. While there, you can stop by the High Park Zoo and see the infamous Toronto capybaras or play at the Jamie Bell Adventure Park castle playground.
Toronto Comic Arts Festival
For fans of comic arts, this two day exhibition and vendor fair on May 13th & 14th is a celebration of comics and graphic novels along with their creators. They take over the Toronto Reference Library and the surrounding neighbourhood. There are plenty of readings, interviews, panels, art installations and workshops alongside the festival. Some features guests include Ngozi Ukazu, Gengoroh Tagame, Jillian Tamaki and Scott Westerfeld.
Spring calls for the return of dozens of outdoor farmers’ markets throughout the city. This brings fresh, local and organic goods right to your neighbourhood for you dig your teeth into. The Junction Farmers Market represents the city’s west end and the Leslieville Farmers Market represents the city’s east end. Another familiar name is the Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market and it returns to the park on May 9th.
Doors Open Toronto
Your chance to explore the rich architecture of Toronto comes on May 27th and 28th with the Doors Open Toronto. Over 150 buildings will open to the public during the festival, allowing you to marvel at the amazing design that goes into the building you see from the outside on a regular basis. This year’s event features a special “15 Decades of Canadian Architecture” theme to honour Canada’s 150th birthday. It is a time to shine a special light on the evolution of Canadian architecture and places a significant focus on Centennial-period buildings from the 1960s.
Hopefully, this list will give you a great excuse to get out and enjoy the city as the weather starts to turn.
