Toronto's Biggest Swap at Yonge-Dundas Square

Weather forecast: A wave of unstoppable swapping fun is about to hit Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square on July 19!

Swapsity ( is thrilled to be returning to the Live Green Toronto Festival—the city’s largest outdoor celebration of all things green—for our most beloved and fun swap event of the year. The Book Movie Music Eco-Swap is returning for the 4th year running! It’s run 100% on volunteer power. To date, our swappers have amassed an astounding $200,000 in savings, recycled a mighty 30,000 items and swapped over 25,000 of those items.

Who doesn’t love a great swap? That feeling of finding a real gem—a classic you've been meaning to read, a movie for your next night in, or a rare album by a band you love—that gives a sudden rush of excitement, nostalgia, or sheer curiosity. Welcome to the Swap Zone, Toronto’s most fun, social, and eco-friendly way to give and get!

How it works: Bring up to 50 books or media items to the Swap Zone. Once you check them in, you will receive a token that can be used toward any of the items brought by your fellow swappers. At this event, you can swap DVDs for DVDs or VHS for VHS. Everything else can be mixed and matched—a book for a vinyl record or a CD for a book. Full swapping guidelines are available on our website:

Want to join in the fun? Bring the books, comics, CDs, VHS tapes, DVDs, Blu-rays, and vinyl that you're ready to give away and take home something exciting and new-to-you in return. Done with your Godfather DVD collection? Trade it for the Star Wars trilogy. Exchange Eat Pray Love for a copy of One Hundred Years of Solitude or a jazz vinyl.

Whether you want to feel inspired, edified, or entertained, the Swap Zone is sure to scratch that itch.
