It’s been a long, cold Toronto winter (as usual) but there are sure signs of Spring in the city!
We’ve already experienced record a March 6th temperature of a balmy 17.9C! And the Robins have already started to return!
Local residents are always going on and on about how vibrant the city becomes as the weather warms up.
That’s a fact!
The city comes alive with Music, Entertainment and Food Fairs. And the city puts on a host of events (many of them free) to attract visitors. (There is a listing of some of the events on our website!)
There are so many “events” held each summer that we couldn’t possibly list them all. We’ve done our best but we’ve also undoubtedly missed some!
The first major event of the year has already begun (beating the arrival of Spring by about a week!)
The Canadian Music Week ’09 Edition – a three day Music Industry gathering that will see more than 350 visiting bands in just over 35 varied venues in the city.
It is the precursor of the good times to come! Toronto will hold Blues, Jazz and Folk Festivals; Food Fairs in ethnic neighborhoods; outdoor Art Shows and unusual events such as the “Buskerfest” for street performers.
A lot of performers opt to stray with us here at the backpacker’s inn. Some of the visiting groups are pictured below.
To find out where you can catch their shows see the free weekly papers “Now Magazine” and “Eye Weekly” for complete listings.
They’ve all come to play some hot music to warm things up in Toronto!
