As part of Culture Days, 13 museums and cultural organizations along the Bloor Street Cultural Corridor will offer FREE programming this weekend. (Sept 26-28) Feel like a hard-hitting documentary? Or would you prefer to just chill and paint clay? DO BOTH!
Grab your culture-vulture buddy, meet for brunch, download the new Bloor Street Cultural Corridor app and explore the diverse array of exhibits, performances and experiential offerings (FOR FREE!) along Bloor Street, between The Annex and Yorkville.
Along your journey, break for a pumpkin latte on a park bench in Philosopher’s Walk. We honestly can’t think of a better way to spend an autumn afternoon.
Here are some of the things you could do/try:
- enjoy a screening at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema of I AM: SMTOWN LIVE WORLD TOUR or The Green Chain
