Eight Things to Do This Weekend in Toronto

Peak Holiday Season in the city

Somehow we’re already a week into December, which means if you’re not in the full swing of the holidays you’re doing something wrong. Lucky for you, there’s tons of killer events happening in this fair city this weekend for you to check out!

Whitehorse & Terra Lightfoot

Double Trouble on a Friday night! Catch Whitehorse and Terra Lightfoot at Massey Hall Friday for a night of bluesy rock and incredible voices.


The National

Kings of melancholic chamber rock The National are bringing their critically acclaimed new album Sleep Well Beast to the Sony Centre on Saturday! Warning: Kleenex are not provided, so bring some and keep those eyes dry.
