Awesome September Events Happening in Toronto


Sadly, the end of summer means the end of shoving our kids outside for seven hours with a popsicle and a pair of flip flops. It means we have to work a little harder to keep our little darlings entertained, but fortunately there’s lots of stuff happening to help you bridge the seasonal gap between water parks and pumpkin patches.

Here’s a list of some of our favourite September activities in and around the GTA.

For Families:

Sail a Pirate Ship

How do you know you’re a pirate? You just arrrrrrrr! Get ready to walk the plank with Pirate Life’s adventure, cruise and theatre package. Kiddies can come in costume and get their faces painted and tattoo’d on board while they wait to haul in the treasure and count those gold doubloons. Check the website for dates.

Spend an Afternoon at Evergreen BrickWorks

Each September weekend has a different theme (animals, plants, birds and trees) and kids can participate in songs and art projects while learning about environmental stewardship and the area’s plant and animal life. Shop Toronto’s largest farmer’s market every Saturday for seasonal and local food, and the Sunday market for artisanal vendors of food, wine, clothing and jewelery.

Hockey Hall of Fame NHL Centennial Exhibit

Nothing says summer like ice hockey, amiright? Okay so this one might be a stretch but the start of the NHL season is just around the corner so swing by the Hockey Hall of Fame to brush up on your knowledge of the league’s last 100 years and the game’s 100 greatest players. The gear doesn’t smell anymore, trust me. The exhibit is around until January 7, 2018.

Girl Expo Canada

Who run the world? Girls! Start the school year on an empowered note with speakers, demonstrations, activities and entertainment all focused exclusively on everything girls can do and become. Be sure to check out the Plan Canada workshops on body image and self-esteem and find your zen at the Iviva yoga class.

For Moms:

Toronto’s Ultimate Chocolate Tour

Bubbles and Brunch 2017

Time to gather your ladies and treat yo’ selves to an afternoon of decadence in support of a great cause. Look Good Feel Better is a charity that helps women facing cancer look good and feel better. A DJ, open bar and swag bags (squeee!) will round out your afternoon on one of Toronto’s swankiest roof top patios. Pass the Grey Poupon!

Etsy: Made in Canada

If Etsy is responsible for your household’s credit card debt you should definitely (or not?) check out the 4th annual Made in Canada show featuring 130 top handmade and vintage Canadian Etsy sellers. Entrance to the show and participation in the DIY workshops is free, which means you have even more money to shop for beautiful items you probably don’t need. You’re welcome.
