This weekend, we are working toward the final days of summer by drinking, eating and watching movies in our neighbourhood parks.


Theatre geeks, rejoice! SummerWorks returns this weekend with hundreds of shows, conversations, panels and music performances to pack in to the next ten days. With up to 50 shows per day, there are plenty of shows to catch, ranging from improv to amateur to independently produced hits. Check out SummerWorks website to see the festival’s full schedule. Across the city, August 7-17


It may not be the city’s biggest beer festival but the Roundhouse Craft Beer Festival is definitely the most laid-back. Steam Whistle Brewing Company hosts this craft beer festival in the park outside of the brewery, where attendees are invited to bring a picnic blanket, sit, have a beer and hang out for the day. Food trucks have been invited to set up shop and help drinkers soak up some of their brews, with different trucks in attendance on Saturday and Sunday. Bottoms up! Roundhouse Park (outside of the Steam Whistle Brewing Company), August 9-10, 12PM


Greektown is shutting down the streets this Friday through Sunday for the annual Krinos Taste of the Danforth. Food stalls will take over the roads with restaurants serving up quick and dirty dishes while boutiques and local shops sell their goods. It will be mayhem—expect crowds, long lines and stifling heat—but at least there will be food! Danforth Avenue, August 8-10, 12PM


Toronto is the city of neighbourhoods and the diversity of the communities where we live are explored in Neighbourhoods, a new exhibit curated by Darlene Huynh. Ten Torontonians have documented their ‘hoods with their mobile phones, carefully staying away from the landmarks and tourist destinations that are often associated with them. What results from the fifty uncommon snaps of these neighbourhoods is a unique portrait of our city. Hunt Club Studio (709 College Street), August 7, 7PM

We have been saying for weeks that the Christie Pits Film Festival has been hitting the ball out of the park with their 2014 programming and this Sunday’s Wes Anderson finale is no exception. Moonrise Kingdom at Christie Pits Film Festival is one of the few final outdoor screenings left this summer so grab your blanket, your friends and your Boy Scout uniform and head to the park to watch this quirky comedy about two kids in love. Christie Pits Park (779 Crawford Avenue) 7:30PM PWYC
