The top 5 free events in Toronto: November 23-29 2015

The top free events in Toronto this week will let you embrace your inner bookworm. LIT BANG! literary fest kicks off this week with two cost-free parties. If you'd rather leave your books at home, head to the opening day of The Toronto Christmas Market (which is free during the week).

Here's what to do if you've spent all your funds on early Xmas shopping.

European Union Film Festival (November 14-28)
The European Union Film Festival is in full swing and offering free general admission tickets to all its shows. The lineup this week includes A Love Story: Lindenfeld, Body, and Baby(a)lone. If you want to reserve tickets early, you can opt to pay a $10 fee.

Toronto Christmas Market (November 20-December 20)
The European inspired Christmas market has taken over the Distillery District for another year. If you don't have any cash to spare, get into the festive spirit by watching carollers and window shop. Remember to go on a weekday, otherwise you'll be paying the $5 weekend entry fee.

That's How I Remember It Live (November 25)
If you're a podcast junkie, head to The Ossington on Wednesday night to celebrate the 100th edition of That's How I Remember It. The shows regular cast will be there, plus special guest comedian Joel Buxton and a few surprise guests.

Last Thursdays Presents: Escape Artists (November 26)
On the last Thursday of every month the Gladstone Hotel hosts a cost-free soiree in the ballroom (It's PWYC, so be generous if you have the means). This week you'll be treated to works from 12 artists that have explored the intersection between art and escapism. If you feel like letting your freak flag fly, there's also a dance floor where you can get down.

LIT BANG! (November 26-December 20)
LIT BANG! kicks off this week with a few literary themed events to keep you busy at no cost. On tap this week is The Feathertale Review #16 Launch Party and the Poetry Is Dead Issue 12 Launch Party. Check out the full festival schedule on the IN PRINT website.
