Top 5 things to do in Toronto this week [May 19 - 25th] !

I hope you're all well rested after that long weekend!

Since May continues to give us April showers, you might want to wear your Hunter wellies before heading out to some of the events I'm most excited for this week: 

FASHION: International Fashion Festival Toronto 

Another fashion event for those of you who want to know what the next big trend on the runway is. Events like this put a spotlight on Toronto's budding fashion scene and it's important to support them, and the local designers presenting, in order to finally put Toronto on the map as a true fashion forward city. 

Where: Delta Meadowvale Hotel

When:  May 22- 25th

MUSIC: Timber Timbre 

You should go to this show on Friday not just because it's the incredible Timber Timbre, and not just because my favourite Toronto voice Cold Specks is opening, but because it's at the beautiful Massey Hall - and tickets are only $18.94! Prepare to have shivers from both performances. 
 
Where: Massey Hall

When: May 23rd, 8pm

FILM: Toronto LGBT Film Festival 

Presented by Inside Out, the Toronto LGBT Film Festival gives another opportunity to explore the vast, progressive and exciting things happening on film in the LGBT world. Tons of events and parties are happening throughout the week as well, so there's something for everyone!

Where: TIFF Bell Lightbox

When: May 22nd - June 1st

EXPLORE: Doors Open

Doors Open is always a fun way to spend a warm weekend. My first experience with it was kind of mindblowing because it's an exciting thing to peek inside buildings you would never otherwise be allowed to see. If you are at all interested in architechture or Toronto's history, make it a point to spend some time this weekend exploring this awesome city. 

Where: All around the city!

When: May 24 - 25th

FUN: Woofstock 

Being the owner of a pomeranian who happens to be the love of my life, Woofstock is always one of my favourite events of the year. Even if you don't have a dog, use this opportunity to see the largest gathering of the cutest, happiest dogs in the city. It'll almost make up for your choice to settle for one of those many, awful Toronto apartments that don't allow pets.

Where: Woodbine Park

When: May 24 - 25th
