June is Pride Month! The highlight of Pride Month is Pride Weekend (June 21st to 23rd) with the parades, live performances and street market. The opening ceremony is on June 4th at City Hall where the Rainbow and Transgender flags will be raised. Of course, it’s more than just parties. There are comedy events, business networking, an AIDS vigil and much more.

The world’s most eminent samples of theatre, dance, and music are showcased for nearly three weeks in the middle of June.

Since 1999, Toronto Ribfest has been delivering family entertainment to Toronto with the most exciting Canada Day weekend party around! Between the live entertainment, exciting midway and Kids Zone, and of course, the mouth-watering food, everyone has fun and no one leaves hungry.
But Toronto Ribfest is about more than just the food, fun, and music. We’re proud of the fact that 100% of the proceeds from Toronto Ribfest goes back into our community and to select programs that make our world a better place. Through the hard work of Rotary Etobicoke, our community sponsors and partners, and hundreds of volunteers, we’ve raised close to $4 million since we started 19 years ago – and every penny goes to support our causes.
