The top 5 free events in Toronto: September 7-13 2015

Free events in Toronto will let you live up the last days of summer at free street festivals. Taste of the Kingsway, Cabbagetown Festival, and the Bloorcourt Arts & Crafts Fair will be bringing all the regular festival shenanigans, from live music to car shows. If you're more into technology, there's also a wearable tech event early in the week, so you can get your geek on.

Here's what to do if you're bank account is in the negative.

Life & Tech Wearable Technology Expo (September 8)
Head to Dundas Square this Tuesday if you like to keep up-to-date with the latest and greatest technological advances. 30 exhibitors will be showing off new advances in wearable tech. Once you're done perusing the goods, stick around for wearable tech fashion shows, panels, and demos.

Taste of the Kingsway (September 11-13)
Each year, on the weekend after Labour Day, the Kingsway comes alive with midway rides, beer and wine gardens, live performance and samples upon samples of local food. The street festival will run from Prince Edward Dr. to Montgomery Rd.

Cabbagetown Festival (September 12-13)
The Cabbagetown Festival returns for its 39th year this Saturday and Sunday. Expect to find Parliament Street buzzing with buskers, a car show, a dog photo booth, over 30 live bands, and much more. A huge bonus, there will be a free morning of pancakes, so dining won't cost you a dime (providing you get there early).

Bloorcourt Arts & Crafts Fair (September 13)
If you haven't had enough of fairs and festivals this summer, head to Bloorcourt for the Arts & Crafts Fair. Don't worry, vendors are only a part of the event. There will also be plenty of free live music and family-friendly fun.

Toronto Bicycle Music Festival (September 13)
If you're not into the idea of spending your Sunday at an art fair, try out the Toronto Bicycle Music Festival. Happening in three of our city's green spaces, cyclists will move from location to location to catch some top notch musical acts. Allan Gardens, Grange Park and Christie Pits Park are the destinations, but check the schedule to make sure you'll be at the right place at the right time.
