Here's what to do in Toronto this week if you've misplaced your wallet.

Live in Bellwoods: Great Heart Festival 2015 (June 18-21)
Trinity Bellwoods is hosting its annual Great Heart Festival featuring a lengthy list of unplugged performances. Head to the park for four days of electricity-free shows.

Toronto Jazz Festival (June 18-29)
Though many of the Toronto Jazz Festival concerts require tickets, there are a smattering of performances that do not. On the 19th three separate performances will be open to the public: George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Dumpstaphunk, and Morris Day & The Time. Check out the full calendar here.

Opening Party at the Power Plant (June 19)
Who doesn't like a good party, especially when it's free? The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery is kicking off the summer season by throwing a bash filled with music, drinks and, of course, an art exhibition.

NXNE Block Party (June 20)
This Saturday the East Room and NXNE are hosting a block party. Head to Carroll street for a outdoor bash filled with food, music, art.

NXNE Dundas Square (June 20-21)
