Toronto Ribfest Get ready for some finger-licking good BBQ as Toronto Ribfest is back at Centennial Park in Etobicoke for Canada Day weekend. The festival will feature over a dozen bands and a midway to keep the kids busy. It begins on Friday at 3 p.m. and runs until July 1 at 10 p.m.

Celebrate Canada Canadas Wonderland is celebrating the country’s birthday with a two-week long festival starting on June 29. The celebration will include street performers and the West Cost Lumberjack show, topped off with a spectacular fireworks display on July 1.

Redpath Waterfront Festival Head down to Toronto’s waterfront to catch a glimpse of a fleet of majestic tall ships at the Redpath Waterfront Festival. The ships visit every three years and will be open for deck tours. The festival is also welcoming the Canadian Coast Guard for the first time. A Maritime market will also be selling yummy seafood, handmade nautical jewellery, and beauty products inspired by the sea. It runs from Saturday to Monday.

East York Toronto Canada Day Parade & Festival A Canada Day celebration wouldn’t be complete with a parade and that’s what you will find down in East York on Monday. Toronto’s longest running Canada Day celebration will start with the parade leaving Dieppe Park, followed by a Party in the Park at Stan Wadlow Park. It will be capped off with fireworks at 10 p.m.

Blue Jays vs. Kansas City Royals Usually it’s quite difficult to grab tickets to the Toronto Blue Jays Canada Day tickets, but there are still some up for grabs as they close out a four-game series over the weekend against the Kansas City Royals. You can find tickets here.

What ever you choose, play safe!
