The top free events in Toronto this week include one of the biggest of the year: Nuit Blanche. Come Saturday night, Toronto will be filled with cost-free exhibitions and crawling with art-lovers from sunset to sunrise. If you'd rather steer clear of crowds, there's also a comedy night, global smoothie day, and more on tap.
Here's what to do if you're desperately awaiting your next paycheque.
The St. Royals (September 28)
Make this Monday a little less boring by kicking off your week with a free concert at the Drake Lounge. Soul and funk music is the name of the game for the St. Royals, so if you like to dance this one's for you.
Comedy on College (September 29)
Having an off week? Lighten it up with some laughs at Comedy on College this Tuesday. The free show will feature stand-up by Ben Hur, Nour Hadidi, Courtney Gilmour, Kyle Andrews, Gerry Hall, and more. If you've got a couple bucks to spare, the food and drinks at Pour Boy are very budget-friendly.
Canada's Walk of Fame Festival (September 29 - October 1)
Dundas Square will be alive this week with performances, food trucks, films, and more from Tuesday to Thursday. Hosted by comedian Johnny Gardhouse, the event will have all your favourite festival activities free of charge.
Global Smoothie Day (October 3)
Head to Trinity Bellwoods this Saturday before Nuit Blanche kicks off for Global Smoothie Day. The event is BYOP (bring your own produce), so you can conjure up the perfect blend. This is the perfect time to clean out your fridge plus there will be free yoga lessons, musicm and more.
Nuit Blanche (October 3)
Nuit Blanche returns this Saturday for its 10th year. There's over 60 contemporary art projects scattered around the downtown core for your viewing pleasure. I would advise spending the day getting some shut eye if you plan to stay out until morning.
