Do Make Say Think: What We're Doing This Weekend (September 21-23)
Celebrate the beginning of fall with shopping, comedy, wine, and more

The Autumnal Equinox is on Saturday, so take this weekend to celebrate the harvest, the end of summer or the beginning of fall at any one of these local events. 

Sept. 21-28 JFL 42: aka Just For Laughs 42 features 42 things in 8 days. This festival is new and interactive, with a pass-holding credit-based system and a guaranteed entrance to Louis CK’s live show.

Sept. 21-22 Shop the Shore: Lakeshore village plays host to this annual shopping festival; complete with tastings, music, children’s activities, demos, sales and special events.

Sept. 21-30 Niagara Wine Festival: It’s a bit out of town, but think of this as your fall celebration with two weeks of great wine accompanied by food, concerts, speakers and more. Bring your kids this Saturday for the Pied Piper storybook parade.

If you can’t make it to the wine festival, remember it’s still Beer Week until Saturday.

Sept. 21 Haunted Walking Tours: Because Halloween should always begin early. Every Friday this fall, take an eerie tour of Exhibition Place. The site says not suitable for children under 10, so you know it should be a scary good time.

 Sept. 22 Windfest: Go fly a kite this weekend at Woodbine beach. If you don’t have a kite, there will be a shop on the premises.

Sept. 22 Junction Music Festival: With venues spread throughout the Junction, plus workshops, music inspired menus and activities.


Sept. 22 Fresh Fest: The Ontario Food Terminal is opening its doors to the public for the first time to raise awareness about produce distribution and to support FoodShare. There will be fresh produce, samples, cooking demos, face painting and more. 

Sept. 22 Dundas West Sidewalk Sale: The first (of hopefully many) sidewalk sale along Dundas West. Dozens of retailers and restaurants will set up shop outdoors and offer one-day only discounts.

Sept. 23 The Word on the Street: Moving back to the street; this festival has moved out of Queen’s Park and onto the surrounding blocks. Celebrate reading and advocate literacy this weekend.

Sept. 23 Bunfest: This may possibly be the cutest festival ever. There will be bunnies to pet, bunnies to buy and just about bunny-themed everything including bunny themed manucures and bunny caricatures.


Sept. 23 Community Day at Ontario Science Centre: Free entry and special programming including: Science on Fire, Cosmic Journeys, Segway Science and more. Plus discounted IMAX pricing for adults and an appearance by Olympian Gavin Smellie.
