Earth Day events in Toronto 2014

Posted by Aubrey Jax / April 22, 2014

earth day torontoEarth Day in Toronto brings us a host of green-inspired events as well as many that really don't have much to do with the annual worldwide demonstration to support environment protection. Straddling the middle is |FAT| Arts & Fashion Week, TO's alternative / avant-garde fashion event of the year. It kicks off five days of runway shows, live performances, short films, photography exhibits and art installations. Tonight's theme is Earth/Industry.

At the Rivoli on Queen West new weird Canada musician Sandro Perri will perform "surprise songs" and a comedy routine before a screening of Gwar's Phallus in Wonderland. Let's hope Perri's skits are funnier than Drake's. Hungry after work? Bier Markt is giving away free fries. See our Earth Day 2014 round-up and all our top picks for today below. Want more events?
