Came to Band Shell Park for the Friday edition of Beer Festival recently. The space itself is huge and accommodates the event well, minus the giant line-up to get in. Good times were had though.

A yearly attraction in Toronto, it is usually the sign of summer winding down and school approaching. This is a great place for family and people of all ages. There are numerous rides and attractions in the outside area, and tons of little shopping places...More

We returned to the home show after memories of previous home show events. This was highly disappointing. They do not screen their vendors and we ended up with a vendor that was basically a snake oil salesman. In speaking with the organizers after we had...More

One of the best events of the year is the C.N.E., although if you check the Exhibition Place website, you`ll find there are events year-round. The C.N.E. goes from morning `til night, with lots of mini-shows outside, bigger indoor shows such as skating and acrobatics,...More

It's busy. I have always found when going that either they should limit how many people can be in there or the grounds or something should be bigger. Its so packed that Walt Disney in Florida is less busy in comparison. That being said its...More

For many of us, The Royal is a must and this year the exhibits did not disappoint. The butter sculptures were there, but in a different spot, closer to the bulk of the visitors. The big disappointment for me was the extortionate prices for food....More

This was the second time that I went to Exhibition Place to visit a fair, and to be fair, I was a bit disappointed again. The tickets plus parking price are expensive compared to what you will receive. As usual it was too crowded and...More

The last time I went to the Royal was when I was in public school in the late 1950s. The buildings are the same old-same old with new facades to hide their age. (Will they ever be torn down and replaced?) I took the TTC...More

Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is
one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's
neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums,
clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the
funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to
stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and
vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca
for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers,
