Do Make Say Think (June 5-7)
This weekend, we’re going on a Field Trip, feeling the Ossington love, and (not) breaking necks.

Do

Field Trip is back and determined to become a Toronto mainstay. New labelmates Maylee Todd, Megan Bonnell, and Zaki Ibrahim will cross stage paths with Arts & Crafts label vets Broken Social Scene, Kevin Drew, and The Constantines along with a dozen more acts. This year’s trip to the fields of Fort York and the Garrison Common will also feature non-label performers like CHVRCHES and Vance Joy. And did we mention some of the city’s best restaurants and retailers will be on the festival grounds as well? A&C knows how to throw an experience event. 100 Garrison Rd., Saturday & Sunday, 1:30PM

Despite closures of businesses along the strip, Ossington hospitality lives on at clothing retailer Tiger of Sweden this Saturday during #TigerLovesOssington. With a little help from their neighbours Rock Lobster Food Co., The Painted Lady, and Parlour, the shop’s patio will be giving off chill vibes during their opening summer bash. 56 Ossington Ave., Saturday, 11AM-5PM

Make

Sew Be It Studio hosts the Toronto Etsy Craft Party to join in on the international digital day of crafting on June 6th. Recreate and repurpose your memories just as Martha Stewart would have wanted by participating in this year’s theme, Recapture. Sign up through Eventbrite to secure your space at the crafters’ table. 2711 Yonge St., Friday, 6PM

Say

Being a creative gathering for all, Luminato Festival kicks off on Friday with, quite literally, something for everyone. Hundreds of musical performances, art shows, theatre shows, talks, and readings will happen across the city over the course of 10 days. There’s really no excuse for boredom until June 15th. Art spaces across Toronto, Friday-Sunday

Think

Protect Ya Neck by making a bid on one of 26 customized motorcycle helmets being auctioned off at this art show fundraiser curated by Giles Monette. The helmets, designed by 26 Toronto artists like Elicser, Justin Broadbent, and Keith McLeod, will raise funds for Bikers for Autism. 452 Richmond St. W., Saturday, 8PM

Carlton Cinema is an all-night Raim-a-thon this Saturday night, promising to have cinephiles dead by dawn. The Sam Raimi Midnight Movie Marathon will support the Toronto Star Fresh Air Fund, giving 25,000 underprivileged kids a camp experience, and all you have to do is collect pledges while you watch 8 glorious hours of Evil Dead and Army of Darkness films. 20 Carlton St., Saturday, 10:30PM
