Do Make Say Think (June 27-29)
This week, we’re going to Church in rainbows, dreaming in digital and eating ourselves sick.


Church Street will be in rainbows this weekend with the conclusion of the 2014 World Pride Festival. Saturday sees the annual Dyke March taking place at Allan Gardens at 12:30PM and the World Pride Parade on Sunday at 1PM. The weekend will be littered with other parties around town, like the Big Pride Sing-Along featuring Toronto’s LGBTQ choir Singing Out! at the Betty Oliphant Theatre on Saturday night. Across the city, June 27-29


Eat until you make yourself sick at Toronto Ribfest, a Canada Day weekend tradition in Centennial Park, where the city’s best meat vendors try to persuade carnivores that their ribs are best. Admission is only $2 and you can eat while you watch World Cup soccer games so even if you lose, you win. Sixteen vendors will be serving ribs. Bring on the meat sweats. Centennial Park, June 27-July 1, 11AM


Tiesto, Justice, Eric Prydz, Art Department, Chainsmokers, Paul Oakenfold, Keys N’ Krates: Even if you’re not into EDM, Digital Dreams has a pretty solid line-up this year that will make you reconsider. You’ll shell out for tickets, but the experience should be worth it. If that’s not your thing, Beck is playing the Sony Centre on Friday night. The Flats @ Ontario Place, June 28-June 29, 2PM


Photographs of classic rock-n-rollers, pin-ups, and the last of Hollywood’s movie stars welcome visitors at Terry O’Neill: The Man Who Shot The Sixties, opening this weekend at Yorkville’s Izzy Gallery. Credited with creating icons of the ‘60s, O’Neill was the photographer responsible for the decade’s most memorable magazine covers and albums, having shot names like David Bowie, Audrey Hepburn, The Rolling Stones, Brigitte Bardot, and Frank Sinatra. Check out his most famous portrait of his wife Faye Dunaway poolside the day after her Oscar win when you drop in. Izzy Gallery, June 27-August 24, 11AM
