Toronto is getting a week-long house party

You know that feeling when you've been swiping right or left for too long? When you really haven't interacted with another human other than via text in days? It's time for you to put away that screen and get to a house party, and thanks to the organizers of this unique, intimate seven-day festival, you can.

The third annual Festival Of House Culture, happening from November 20 to 27, is like a giant string of house parties all over the city to help you get out of your place and into someone else's.

It's basically a week of music, arts, workshops, conversations and food all in private houses instead of at bars or commercial spaces.

There are over 30 events planned this year, and some highlights include concerts by Swamperella, Hotcha!, and guitar hero Maneli Jamal, as well as an international vegetarian potluck, a knitting party with live piano by Marcel Aucoin and a photography show.

There's no better way to socialize than in someone's living room or kitchen with records playing in the background, crafts in one room and a flute quintet in the other. Check out the official website for the robust schedule and go chill with some neighbours.
