12th Annual Blackout Party
The summer of 2003 is legendary. The blackout that plunged huge swathes of Eastern North America into darkness for days on end that year brought out the best in people, inciting impromptu block parties, community gatherings, bbq’s, pool parties, and more. Celebrate the magic of that wicked hot summer with the annual Blackout Party hosted by the Lemon Bucket Orchestra, which this year includes guerilla concerts and a parade to a secret after party location. Bring a picnic and a candle!

Canadian Stage’s Shakespeare in High Park
This is what a summer in Toronto is all about. Entering High Park feels like leaving the city, a vacation just a few subway stops from home where you’ll be entertained and refreshed at the High Park Amphitheatre. This year’s shows are the Comedy of Errors, and Julius Caesar, two fabulous productions on alternating evenings for a pay what you can fee, with a suggested donation of $20 for adults. Bring a picnic and make a night of it! Seating is first come first served, so be sure to come as early as you can. (Production Photo by Paul Lampert.)
