The top 10 free events in Toronto

Posted by PanamericanWorld on May 12, 2015

Free events in Toronto this week will have you dancing 'til dawn. There is a Canadiana folk-rock night at Bier Markt, a hip-hop freestyle at Round, and an anniversary party at Parts & Labour promising to play your favourite Nicki and Omarion jams.

Here's what to do in Toronto this week once you're iPhone runs out of juice.

Contact Photography Fest (May)
The Contact Photography Festival is in full swing with plenty of free exhibitions to choose from. If you haven't already, check out Rita Leistner's Looking for Marshall McLuhan in Afghanistan exhibit before it closes this Wednesday or the Myoung Ho Lee's "Tree" photo installation at Brookfield Place.

Bellwoods Flea (May 16)
The opening of flea markets is a well-needed sign that summer is on fast on the approach. This Saturday, the Bellwoods Flea is kicking off and promises a bevy of art, fashion, food and more from its vendors. Entry is free and you can bring your dog.

Canadiana Night at Bier Markt (May 14)
Get Patriotic at the Bier Markt this Thursday when they host Canadiana night. Featuring two bands, Reynolds Creek and Whisky Epiphany, this show promises a night of folk-rock fun. Best of all, you only need your ID to enter.

Why spend hump day at home when you could be celebrating the week being half over at a hip-hop freestyle jam session? If you're in the Kensington area, drop by for a music-packed night hosted by The Dirty B-Sides with Donny Milwalkee and Tristan Dryden.

Boosie Fade One-Year Anniversary at Parts and Labour (May 15)
Boosie Fade parties have been happening for a year, and they're making their first birthday a big deal. This Friday head out to Parts and Labour before 11pm and get into the bash for free.

Free Nights at the Horseshoe (Monday/Tuesday, The Horseshoe)

The Legendary Horseshoe has a storied history, and hosts free indie rock shows in the early week with Shoeless Mondays and Dave Bookman's Nu Music Night on Tuesdays.

AGO Free Evening (Wednesday, AGO)
The Art Gallery of Ontario's free evening runs from 6-8:30pm. It can be a little crowded, but sometimes the people watching is as good as the art (sometimes).

CINSSU's Free Friday Films (Fridays)
The Innis Town Hall is back with free movies every Friday. Follow the Cinema Studies Student Union or check out our event section.
