Nuit Blanche Toronto

The top 5 free events in Toronto: Sept 26-Oct 2 2016

Free events in Toronto this week are pretty cute and fun and then BAM! It's Nuit Blanche on October 1. Everything seems to pale in comparison to the enormous all-night contemporary art party that swallows the city whole from 6:58 p.m. until sunrise.

Here are my picks for free events in Toronto this week.

Bollywood dance class (September 27, Sony Centre)
Start the week off on the right (or left) foot with renowned instructors from Rightfoot Studio as they run through a Bollywood dance lesson. Incorporating modern dance techniques with traditional ones, it's an hour lesson and there's no previous dance experience required, all levels welcome.

Best of comedy and documentary film fest (September 29, Carlton Cinema)
Be quick and reserve your seat at the Feedback comedy and documentary film fest. It's at the Carlton Cinema so seating is limited. Featuring films from around the world things get rolling at 7p.m. and it's all moderated by boss man Matthew Toffolo.

Super Wonder Fashion Wars (September 30, Super Wonder Gallery)
Six designers battle it out on the runway for this fashion competition and conceptual spectacle. Expect to see some wild designs out of this world fashion being judged by a special guest panel. Then stick around for the after party with DJ Stacie Ant.

Really Really Free Market (October 1, Campbell Park)
This is not a joke; this is a totally free market. "Share, take, do both or neither; no barter, no money" is the motto. Check out this page for the basic shopping guidelines, and get there early to snag the good stuff.

Nuit Blanche (October 1, Various locations)The all night art party is finally back! Will it be as goodwithout a massive bank sponsor? It'll be interesting to see how the massive one-night festival will do on its own. As usual look out for contemporary art experiences in unexpected public spaces all over the city. Check out the official site for maps, project lists and transportation details.
