Pride weekend, music festivals, and two great Toronto teams

Regardless of whether it rains all weekend or not, there is a ton happening in Toronto over the next few days. So buy a good umbrella and check out our list of the top five things to do in the city this weekend.

Check out a Concert

This weekend is a big one for music in Toronto. U2 are playing tonight at the Rogers Centre, as well as The Wooden Sky at Massey Hall. Arkells and July Talk are playing tomorrow night at the Budweiser Stage.

There’s also NXNE at the Port Lands this weekend! Post Malone headlines Friday, Kaytranada headlines Saturday, and Passion Pit will be closing the weekend Sunday night.


Cheer on Toronto FC

TFC are playing Friday at the BMO Field at 8 p.m., so you still have time to grab tickets! The Toronto team currently holds first place in the eastern conference, so regardless of the rain, you’re in for a good game.
