The top 5 free events in Toronto: March 14-20 2016

The top free events in Toronto this week will have you heading to the Beaches to kiss Winter Stations goodbye. The outdoor installations will be taken down on the 20th, so if you haven't made it down, now's the time. If you're more into partying on a budget, St. Patrick's Day is this Thursday and you can hit up a free soiree at the Gladstone (remember to pregame).

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

Winter Stations (Feb. 15-March 20)
Into checking out some outdoor art? Head to Winter Stations. The annual competition has turned several lifeguard stations in the Beaches. It's the final week of the exhibition, so go now or forever hold your peace.

Dave Bookman's Nu Music Nite (March 15)
As per usual, Tuesday night shows are cost-free at the Horseshoe Tavern. This week Stray Bullets, The Corbins and French Press will be playing sets from 9 p.m. onwards. Expect to find the crowd full of new music lovers.

St. Paddy's Day Extravaganza (March 17)
I'm going to make the bold assumption that - if you're of the legal drinking age - you will be downing a pint or two on St. Patrick's Day. This, unfortunately, will cost you a few bucks. If you want to be as fiscally responsible as possible, I suggest buying some bargain beers at the LCBO and then hitting up a free party like the Gladstone's to celebrate.

WWF 10 year Earth Hour Milestone (March 19)
Celebrate Earth Hour by joining Roncy residents on a 1.8 k candlelight walk. If you'd rather observe the occasion by yourself, there's good news: turning off your lights and electronics for an hour is a completely free activity!

Bellwoods Flea (March 19)
This Saturday, the Bellwoods Flea is celebrating spring with a bevy of art, fashion, food and more from its vendors. If you don't have the cash to support a full-blown shopping spree, you can still spend the day watching classic flicks and dancing. Entry is free and you can bring your dog.
