Free Events Toronto

The top 5 free events in Toronto: July 13-19

Free events in Toronto will have your week filled with festivals. The Beaches Jazz Fest and PANAMANIA are in now full swing, giving you plenty of event options all week long. If you aren't a fan of wading through crowds, head to the Harbourfront Centre or David Pecaut Square to catch a free flick.

Heres what to do if all you have left are old Canadian Tire dollars.

Franco-FĂŞte (July 10-24)
Franco-Fete is an opportunity for Toronto's French-speaking people to get together and share their cultures, and teach others about them, too. The festival, at Yonge-Dundas Square, will be like being at the roadside for the Tour de France -- except with the cyclists.

Beaches Jazz Fest (July 10-26)
The Beaches Jazz Festival continues to expand, this year encompassing three weekends at Woodbine Park, on top of the annual street festival, while still remaining free for everyone. Performances by the Lula All Stars, Chris Thomas King, Ogguere, God Made Me Funky, The Boom Booms, La Gran Colombia Orchestra and many more make this one of the most international options this summer.

PANAMANIA (July 10-26, August 7-12)
The Pan Am Games aren't just about sports. You'll be able to see acts like The Roots, Flaming Lips, Chromeo, Jann Arden, USS, Lights, Janelle Monae, Colin James, tons of world music artists and lots more -- all for free at Nathan Phillips Square and the CIBC PanAm Park. Check the schedule and show up early.

Free Flicks: Young Frankenstein Win Win (July 15)
Head to the Harbourfront Centre if you feel like catching a free movie this Wednesday. Win Win is playing this week.

TIFF in the Park: Whale Rider (July 15)
TIFF in the Park is now in full swing. This Wednesday's flick is Whale Rider, an inspiring film about a twelve-year-old Maori girl.
