Victoria Day weekend events in Toronto

May 17, 2014 - Updated: May 17, 2014

Here's what's happening in Toronto this May 16-18, 2014.

It's May long, and you're reading this from a car on the way to somewhere far less scarred by cranes, condos, and Rob Ford. Or else, the joke's on you as much as it's on me, meaning our big nature plans won't extend beyond the blossoming cherry trees in High Park and trying to find a rooftop to take in sky-sparklies. From Canada's Wonderland to Ashbridges Bay and Dundas Driving Park, we've got the full details on Victoria Day fireworks here and what's open and closed for the holiday here. If you don't have a ride out of town, read on for more things to do this weekend.


Just a gentle reminder that the world's biggest photography event is already halfway over for the year. The AGO's show is now open (check out our review here) and artists from Hamilton to China are displaying fine artworks across Toronto. While it only takes a few minutes to take in the average Contact show, try not to see too many, or you might never be able to log into Instagram again. Here's our full preview of must-sees, plus a shortlist of underrated shows.



Toronto-based video artists Francesco Gagliardi, Thea Jones, Manolo Lugo, Eugenio Salas, and Leslie Supnet are going super niche - and you can eat while watching their food (Delicatessen, 1991) themed work. On the menu: a "bloody Andalusian gazpacho", eggplant stuffed fingers, and a wild rice dessert with ginger, coconut and cardamom. If dinner isn't weird, why eat it? Friday, May 16, 6pm, Trinity Square Video (401 Richmond St. West, Suite 376)

Toronto Underground Market
The Toronto Underground Market is on at 99 Sudbury this Saturday from 5pm. TUM gathers "food entrepreneurs," chefs, and home cooks for an event that's part party, part reason to stuff yourself silly. Which is actually just a good party, come to think of it. Saturday, May 17, 5pm, 99 Sudbury, $15 (tickets available online).

Build Tilde for Tacos
Tilde, a new contemporary taquiera currently in the works at Danforth and Pape, is employing a novel crowdsourcing scheme to help meet the deadline for its intended June opening. The restaurant is appealing to the public to participate in renovations for the promise of free tacos, earned one for each hour of painting or moving furniture on Sunday. You'll be able to redeem them when the restaurant opens. Yeah, that's not minimum wage, so hopefully this doesn't become the next Toronto food service trend. Sunday, May 18, 12-4pm, Tilde (699 Danforth Ave.).

Yes Yes Y'all's Sprin-a-ling-a-ling
YYY are here to save you from a weekend of boredom and cottage envy with a night of hip hop, dancehall, R&B, and sweat. Lissa Monet is DJ-ing too. Friday, May 16, CODA (794 Bathurst St.), $6 before midnight.

Sweaty Betty's 10th Anniversary Party
Ten years on Ossington. Will Betty's be tight lipped about the changes she's seen (accidentally instigated?), or will you buy her so many shots she begins to reminisce about the time when no one drove to Ossington and the heels were strictly vintage and scuffed? One time I saw Ryan Gosling in the bar and didn't care because I was too scrappy/shy. Now I'd def say hi. Say hi & happy birthday this Sunday over oysters and cocktails with less than three ingredients in them. Sunday, May 18, 3pm-2am, Sweaty Betty's (13 Ossington Ave.).FASHION

Roncy Flea
While not as hip as some of Toronto's other markets, the dog action on Roncesvalles alone is worth a trip to Roncy Flea. Ask before you pat (they might have fleas. Just kidding - no Roncy dogs have fleas). Saturday, May 17, 10am-4pm, Emmanuel-Howard Park United Church (214 Wright Ave.).

Junction Flea
If you want to step up your flea game, the Junction Flea is is Sunday in its new digs at Brick Works. RIP, parking lot tent hangs. Sunday, May 18, 10am - 4pm, Brick Works (550 Bayview Avenue), $2.

Axe Throwing: Like Darts, But Not (11th Edition)
You don't need to go to the woods to get drunk and throw axes anymore, so delete that judgmental high-school friend with the Muskoka property from your phone right now. BYOB. Friday, May 16, 8pm, BATL (213 Sterling Rd.), $40.


Game of Thrones at TIFF
You have until Sunday, May 18 to get down the the TIFF Bell Lightbox to bask in Game of Thrones stuff like props, costumes, weaponry, and storyboards. Take a look at what last year's exhibit was like here. Until May 18, 10am-10pm, something bad happens at a wedding, TIFF (350 King St. West).


Circus Festival
From acrobats to clowns, the Harbourfront is hosting this colourful family-friendly (it's okay to cry when the clown makes eye contact) fest all May long weekend. May 17-19, Harbourfront Centre (235 Queens Quay West).
