Could there be anything more Canadian than beer and hockey? There are some great opportunities to take in the best of both this February in Toronto, along with a major showcase of some of the most impressive cars from around the world. Each of these events are a fun way to spend a day (or evening) and to experience some local culture, especially if you are visiting the Six.
Winter Craft Beer Festival
Set in Roundhouse Park, right in the heart of downtown Toronto, the Winter Craft Beer Festival is an absolute must if you are a brew lover. Steam Whistle Brewing will be hosting over 40 local breweries on February 1, pouring the finest craft beers in Ontario for festivalgoers to savour. Some of the most popular food trucks in the city will be on-site as well, offering tasty accompaniments to the suds. In addition, the festival will feature fun and games, including campfires and marshmallow toasting, a photo station, giant beer pong, bean bag toss, life-size Jenga and a dance party with DJ-spun beats.
The Howe - Gretzky Exhibition
This much anticipated exhibition, currently showing now until September 7, 2020 at the Hockey Hall of Fame, celebrates two of the best Canadian hockey players of all time: Gordie Howe and Wayne Gretzky. The Howe - Gretzky Exhibition provides an intimate look into the lives and legacies of “Mr. Hockey” and “The Great One” through milestone artifacts and rare personal memorabilia, hand chosen by both families and the Hall of Fame curators. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about these inspiring and iconic history-making Canadian athletes. And, if you're looking to take in a live hockey game, check out the Toronto Maple Leaf’s schedule on home ice at the Scotiabank Area.
Canadian International AutoShow
Taking place from February 14 to 23 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the Canadian International Autoshow is an anticipated showcase of the latest in automotive technologies and innovations, and significant developments in the industry. Along with the world’s most exclusive Bugatti and the FELINO cB7 (the second-ever supercar made in Canada), attendees will also have an opportunity to check out the AutoShow’s newest feature: OBLIVION, an exhibit of vehicles from the 1980s and 1990s, accompanied by pop culture tidbits that defined those decades and cars. Approximately eight vehicles will be on display, including replicas of the DeLorean (the iconic time machine from 1985’s Back to the Future) and the black 1982 Pontiac TransAm (made famous on the hit 80s TV show, Knight Rider). There will be over 600,000 square feet of spectacular exhibits, a live WorldGaming Competition, 3 food courts, food trucks and so much more! Car buffs or anyone who appreciates a nice set of wheels won't want to miss this amazing show.
