Annual Festivals & Events

Food, music, art, culture—whatever your passion, there’s an event or festival in Toronto.

It wouldn't be fall in Toronto without the Toronto International Film Festival, or summer without street festivals like Toronto Pride and the Toronto Caribbean Carnival. Both locals and visitors flock to Toronto's annual events year after year, creating new traditions and celebrating old ones. Check out even more events on our Toronto Events Calendar.
