Do not pack up just yet- get ready to settle in because the festivals are not yet over! There is still plenty of more variety and plenty more fun to be had. Whether it is about celebrating culture, or a shared pastime, or a favourite libation, Toronto will celebrate anything!
Creative twists and interpretations of cultural events can either go really well or turn into a terrible taste in the mouth. Thankfully, Toronto Oktoberfest prides itself on being as traditional as possible. So close, in fact, the festival boasts you can get the same authentic experience without having to jump across the Atlantic Ocean. This three-day festival is the perfect way to wrap up your summer. Dates are from September 26 to September 29. Tickets starting at $16. Even takes place at Ontario Place. Note: specific sessions are age-restricted.
Fall for Dance North
Although it is not officially named a festival, it fits the main criteria. There is a central theme and there are multiple days of celebration. The Fall for Dance North comes back its fifth year on October 2 to October 6, 2019, over at Meridian Hall (formerly, Sony Centre) and the Ryerson Theatre. This year there is a significant focus on Indigenous artistry. Tickets are only $15 and they are bound to sell out fast. Get them now!
Toronto Tequila Festival
This is definitely a hit or miss. It is clearly, however, a 19+ event; sorry kids! On October 4, the very first Toronto Tequila Festival raises its tents at Berkeley Church. Learn about how tequila is made, and better yet, get a taste of some of the best tequila the world has to offer. Tickets are $20 online or $30 at the door. The event runs on drink vouchers which are $2 each. Vendors will charge as they see fit.
If you just happen to feel inspired by these festivals make sure you book your room at the Best Western Plus Toronto Airport Hotel. Regardless of the comfortable rooms or amenities that include a fitness centre, and an on-site restaurant, you’ll want to be close to the airport. This way you can be sure to book the quickest flight out to Germany, or Mexico.
