We Know Things To Do in Ontario!

You will never ask “What is happening north of Toronto (and in central and northern Ontario) this weekend”? again! Use our events calendar to find things to do in Ontario and even in Ontario this weekend or in the future. Whether you like to lay low and chill or get your rush from adrenaline-pumping activities and experiences – the calendar has events for everyone, in every season from the Bruce Peninsula to the Ottawa Valley!

Depending on your drive, you’ll find action anywhere from 1 hour away from Toronto to 5. Our events are not limited to highways 400 and 11 either. These are just the first two highway suggestions to travel north and find adventure in Ontario.

Art for Lunch: Surrealist Parlour Games

April 22, 2016

Join us for a series of fun Surrealist parlour games with MacLaren Associate Curator Emily McKibbon and Education Officer Christina Mancuso in conjunction with a presentation of paintings from our collection by Toronto artist Janet Jones. Surrealists—including Marcel Duchamp, André Breton, Man Ray and others—looked for ways to create art free from the strictures of the past. Surprise, free association and elements of the unconscious were joined to create works that broke from tradition, forever changing the course of art history. Always playful, the Surrealists employed games to explore chance and unpredictability, and to collaborate with friends.

Featured Ontario Festivals

This is it! These are them!

Our annual list of Best Festivals, or as we call it around the office “The Bestivals” list.

We pick a new list each year, some are hosted by our advertisers, some festivals we have sponsored and well, some we think are just plain pretty cool.

The list has been assembled keeping in consideration current trends and what people out there really seem to be seeking out. We’ve tried to include events and festivals that might be family focused, adult focused, or both!
