Do Make Say Think, August 1-3
This weekend, while the city migrates out of town, we’re staying in to parade, to dance, to date and to make friends.


Caribana, or the Toronto Caribbean Carnival if that is its real name, has been happening quietly across the city for a few weeks now but this weekend, shit is going to get loud. With the grand parade taking place this Sunday and a host of other parties, like Summer Slamm, the city is going to get pretty wild. Check out the full calendar of events on the festival’s website. Across the city, August 1-3


Making friends has never been easier than with Young Lions Music Club, a social club that gathers young, like-minded folk for concerts and dance parties, and now YLMC is making it even easier. The Young Lions Long Weekend is an entire weekend of events that includes a softball tournament in Bellwoods and a concert by Toronto’s greatest cover band Dwayne Gretzky on Toronto Island. Trinity Bellwoods Park/Queen City Yacht Club, August 2-3, sign up through YoungLionsMusicClub.com


Veld Music Festival may be all about electronic music and openers Calvin Harris and Armin Van Buuren but the reason it’s making Do Make Say Think this weekend is because the rest of its lineup is pretty dope (and the event as a whole gives Brosheaga a run for its money). Joining the headliners is queen bee Iggy Azalea and Waka Flocka Flame over the course of the two-day, 36-artist festival. Some tickets are still available. Downsview Park (35 Carl Hall Road), August 2-3, $270.64+


Evergreen Brick Works is hosting a date night screening with the introduction of their TIFF Pop-Up Movie Night. In collaboration with the festival, the Brick Works has set up a screen in the covered Kilns building so the screening takes place rain or shine. This Friday’s film is the Juliette Binoche vehicle Chocolat. Chocosol chocolate will be present selling sweets as well. A prix fixe dinner is also available at the Brick Works’ own Café Belong. Bring a chair as seating is limited. Evergreen Brick Works (550 Bayview Avenue), August 1, 8PM Free
