The top 5 free events in Toronto: October 24-30 2016

Free events in Toronto this week are really something to bite into. There's CanZine along with a celebration of Twin Peaks, and a couple of major birthday parties you most definitely want to be a part of. Get your favourite sweater out and have a great week not spending any money!

Here are my picks for free things to do in Toronto this week if your piggybank is empty.

A fan night for The Secret History of Twin Peaks (Oct. 24, Type Books)
The West Queen West bookshop has organized a total experience to celebrate the return of Twin Peaks. Demonstrate your knowledge, skills and deepest levels of intuition to win rare prizes provided directly from the creators. "Coffee, donuts and gum will be provided to fuel your investigations."

U.S Election 2016: Populism & Discontent (Oct. 26, Hart House)
The U of T International Relations Society and the Hart House debate committee present this US elections panel led by former New York congressman John LeFalce. It's free to attend and it starts at 7 p.m. There are a bunch of other events leading up to the election that are also worth checking out.

Mill St. Brew Pub 10th Anniversary (Oct. 27, Mill Street Brew Pub)
Celebrate 10 years of local brews in this beautiful Distillery District venue with complimentary appetizers and cask beer at 6 p.m. and live music until 9 p.m. Co-founder Steve Abrams will be there for a talk.

Rotate This Celebrates 25 Years Old (Oct. 29, Rotate This)
Head to Ossington to help Rotate This, one of the best places to buy vinyl in Toronto celebrate 25 years of music. There'll be a crazy sale happening as well as guest DJs (a lineup of old friends and former staff) live bands, cake, pizza and lots of giveaways.

Canzine (Oct. 29, AGO)
Entry is free AF to this celebration of zine and underground culture happening at the AGO from 1 to 7 p.m. Visit with hundreds of zine, book, comic and small press vendors alongside talks, presentations, a zine-making workshop for kids and a live zine race.
