The top 5 free events in Toronto: September 21-27 2015

The top free events in Toronto will have you soaking up the last few days of good weather outdoors. With a free movie in Fort York and a parade-festival hybrid at Trinity Bellwoods and Christie Pits, you'll be embracing the first few days of fall. If you can already feel the temperature dropping there's also a few indoor events on tap to keep you busy.

Here's how to be fiscally responsible this week.

The St. Royals (September 21)
The Drake Lounge is being taken over by The St. Royals this Monday for some quality live motown, funk, and soul music. If you can't make it out to the show, the venue will be hosting The Digs on Thursday evening for another cost-free concert.

NOW's Free Flick Mondays: Ferris Bueller's Day Off (September 21)
Whether you're in the market for a cheap date idea or are just jonesing for a movie night, this one's for you. Head to the Royal Cinema on Monday night for a free screening of Ferris Bueller's Day Off, courtesy of NOW. Plan to arrive a little earlier than usual as the first 100 guests will be treated to free popcorn.

The Power Plant Fall 2015 Opening Party (September 25)
The Power Plant is hosting an opening party this Friday and waving the cover charge. You'll be granted early access to the featured solo exhibits by Dora GarcĂ­a, Carlos Amorales and Mark Lewis. There will also be a cash bar, if you feel like shelling out a few bucks for a drink.

TIFF in Your Park: The Sapphires (September 25)
The good people behind TIFF have spent the summer putting on free movie screenings in parks across the GTA, and (sadly) Friday is the final event of the season. So bring some snacks and a blanket and enjoy one more outdoor film before the weather takes a turn.

The David Suzuki Foundation's third annual Homegrown Park Crawl (September 27)
Though not actually a festival, this "crawl" has all the makings of a good one. Trinity Bellwoods (noon-2pm) and Christie Pits (3-6pm) will be filled with live music, activities, and more - all for free. If you have a couple bucks to spare, local restaurants will be serving cheap eats in the parks.
