Set Current Location
Opened in November 2003 and enjoying a super location in Downtown Toronto, the Yonge-Dundas Square is an open-air public space that hosts events like weekly farmer markets, contemporary concerts, theatrical events, promotions, fireworks displays on holidays and community events. This is a great chance to experience the real spirit of Toronto.
Ideally situated opposite the Eaton Centre, the Ed Mirvish Theatre is billed as Toronto's finest vaudeville house in the 1920s. The façade has changed along with the players that take to its stage. Now, after being a comic theater house, motion picture palace and a contemporary cinema, it has been returned to the look that first made it famous.
If you're looking for a big, dark, loud, squeezed-in-to-capacity music venue, yet still want that intimate club-like atmosphere, then this twin-level space is for you. Because of its size, the Lee's Palace & The Dance Cave club attracts some of the better known alternative music names on the circuit. These include Moxy Fruvous, DJ Trevor, DJ Shannon and more. Shows for all-ages are put on during the day. Timings vary for both levels so call ahead for details.
Given to Toronto by the Massey family in the late 1800s, the Massey Hall and the building was declared a heritage site in the 1970s. Today, it hosts more than 100 events annually, ranging from jazz, classical, folk and rock music to international dance. Comedy and theater troupes as well as opera choirs have performed here to appreciative audiences. Ticket prices vary, depending on seat and performance so call ahead for details for more.
Named after the late Nathan Phillips, Toronto's "Mayor to all the people," this architectural delight is located at the foot of City Hall. It is the focal point for many events throughout the year, including the First Night Toronto festival every New Year's Eve. During the summer it is home to many outdoor entertainers and live bands.
