The top 5 free events in Toronto: August 31 - September 6 2015

Free events in Toronto this week will let you save your pennies and enjoy every second of it. Whether you want to catch one of the last free films of the summer or try your hand at crafting Vietnamese lanterns, there's something on tap to keep you busy on a budget.

Here's what to do if you're taking money from your retirement funds.

TIFF in the Park: Pride and Prejudice(September 2)
By now we're all very familiar with TIFF's outdoor movie events, but that doesn't make them any less awesome. This week, head to David Pecaut Square to catch the screen adaptation of Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice.

The Bill Comedy Show (September 2)
Laughter is the best medicine, and with summer colds going around you might just need some. On Wednesday, head to one of the city's well-loved underground bars, Junction City Music Hall, for some comedy and cocktails.

AKIN Collective Open Studio- BBQ, Beer and free Tie Dye (September 5)
Feeling artsy? AKIN Collective is hosting an open studio event. Art is up for sale, but those strapped for cash can enjoy gallery works without dropping a dime. There will also be a free Tie Dye station, so if you want to revamp your old threads, now's your chance.

Vietnamese Lantern Festival (September 5)
Head to Dufferin Grove Park this Saturday for the Vietnamese Lantern Festival. What's in store? Performances, lantern making, a mooncake & tea tasting, traditional food vendors and more. The lantern competition could land you with a $100 prize, so get practicing if you're in need of some cash.

Open Streets TO (September 6)
Open Streets TO is taking over a chunk of downtown Toronto for a street fest promoting physical activity and city exploration. So grab your bike, your yoga mat, or just walk yourself over and enjoy the outdoors. Don't expect to find any vendors, the focus is on getting active, not trying outrageous foods.
