NileGuide Expert Says:
Harbourfront has a really comprehensive website that outlines all of the upcoming events. It's worth heading down to Harbourfront for one of the festivals, especially the Hot and Spicy Food festival if you're in Toronto in August. Harbourfront's events are always packed with entertainment, good food and lots of people.

Open-air concerts, food fairs and festivals of every description typify summertime at Harbourfront. During the more inclement months, a full facility including theatres, art galleries, lecture and workshop spaces, and concert venues keep patrons' cultural cravings sated.
This ten acre waterfront property provides access to two Toronto marinas and the boardwalk; it is also host to an estimated 4000 events each year. The Harbourfront Centre, located in the heart of the property, is a non profit organization committed to making its milti-disiciplinary arts and cultural events available to as diverse a group as possible. The Centre offers a full slate of educational programs to cover all age ranges and interests: from school groups to niche craft workshops, lectures and reading series.
Harbourfront is accessible by the Queens Quay West streetcar from Spadina Avenue and Union Station. It is also an access point for ferries to Toronto Islands.
