The top 5 free events in Toronto: February 15-21 2016

The top free events in Toronto this week will help your wallet recover after a weekend of attending NBA All-Star events. Or maybe you're just broke. No matter, there's everything from free parties to skating jams on this week's schedule.

Here's a roundup of free events in Toronto this week.

Drake Alumni Dirty Dozen Birthday Party (Feb. 15)
If you couldn't make it to the Drake's big bash last Thursday, the hotel is hosting another birthday extravaganza on Monday. Expect a night of live music and - if you're feeling bold - karaoke. To get in you don't need to throw down any cash, but you will need to bring along a non-perishable food item.

Winter Stations (Feb. 15-Mar. 20)
If you spent October 1st fawning over outdoor exhibitions at Nuit Blanche and the end of January at Toronto Design Offsite, Winter Stations will be right up your alley. The competition will turn several life guard stations in the Beaches into works of art from February 13 until March 20. If you want a taste of what's to come, check out the preview.

Back to the Rack Launch (Feb. 18)
Kicking off on the 18th, the Gladstone is introducing a new weekly event to its calendar - and good news, it's free. The event will bring artists and art appreciators together to mingle and enjoy and ever-changing roster of DJs. If you've got a few bucks to spare, there'll also be drink specials.

DJ Skate Nights: Finale with Tony Touch (Feb. 20)
Head to the Harbourfront Centre on this Saturday for the final DJ Skate Night of the season. The music for this week's installment will be brought to you by Tony Touch.

Icefest 2016 (Feb. 20-21)
The Bloor-Yorkville Icefest will be returning for its 11th year on February 20th. You can expect the regular roster of ice carving demos, DJs and local eats. The best part? It won't cost you a dime to get in.
