Free events in Toronto will have you giving one last goodbye to PANAMANIA. Head to Nathan Phillips Square to see the final few cost-free shows, before the fest wraps up for good on August 12th. When the weekend hits there will be no shortage of free events, with some of the most anticipated street fests in the line-up.

Here's what to do if your fishing change out of your sofa.

PANAMANIA (August 7-12)
PANAMANIA will be over in a few short days, so spend the 10th to the 12th taking advantage of the final free events. See Jann Arden (August 11), A Tribe Called Red (August 12), tons of world music artists and lots more at Nathan Phillips Square. Check the schedule and show up early.

Waterfront Night Market (August 14-16)
Make a bee line for the Night Market stage and catch some live performances free of charge. If you feel like dropping a few dollars, you can also get your hands on some delicious stinky tofu, steamed buns and grilled seafoods on skewers.

Wheels on the Danforth (August 15)
The Danforth is being shut down for the ultimate automobile show. Look forward to scoping out classic cars and motorcycles, shopping, and listening to live music. End your day by joining in on the electronic street dance party.

Festival of South Asia (August 15-16)
The Festival of South Asia is focused on food, and it closes down Gerrard Street in Little India from Coxwell to Greenwood. Aside from the eats, it's a great chance to take in some Bollywood music and dancing.
