August 2014

As August rolls in, it is a quick reminder that fall and school start is just around the corner – but don’t pass up your summer just yet! Toronto has a lively summer culture and there are many events this month that are sure to top off a fantastic summer.

If you and your kids are foodies, check out the Toronto Food Truck Festival this weekend (August 2/3) in Woodbine Park. With over 40 food trucks settling in, there is no shortage of delicacies suitable for the whole family.

 

Craving some mystery? The ROM is offering one of their coolest interactive exhibits to date. Murder at the ROM will be sure to be an adventure, as groups of 2-6 will join a fictional murder mystery investigation to put together clues and solve the crime of the murdered curator. Running until August 30th, make sure to buy the $30 ticket in advance to enjoy this exhibit and all the rest at the ROM!

Music lovers unite at the Ontario Science Centre for the Science of Rock and Roll exhibit. Now through October, music enthusiasts can enjoy the science behind rock music along with technology that influences both the music and the listener. This exhibit is interactive, so grab your dancing shoes.

If Science isn’t your thing, but someone in your family loves the Family Channel. Cody Simpson and other stars on the Family Channel are joining forces for a huge summer concert on August 23 at the Molson Amphitheatre. Score a lawn ticket for under $20!

What would summer be without a trip to the CNE! Opening August 15, this summer event has truly become a summer staple. The largest annual fair provides something for everyone – amusement park rides, parades, live entertainment and tons of food!
