Picasso Exhibit

Joining the ranks of Monet and Klimt is Pablo Picasso, with a landmark celebration of his iconic modernist masterpieces.

You’ll get to experience the world as he interpreted it as a young artist in the early 1900s.

Some of the featured drinks include The Bloodlust, The Darkness, and a unique concoction served in a skull. You’ll need to be dressed up in costume to get in for free and showing up in your regular clothes will cost you $20 at the door, so you may want to throw a spooky look together!

Where: 866 Bloor St W
When: Until October 31st

Multitudes by Feist

Beloved Canadian artist Feist is taking the stage for a series of intimate concerts to perform all-new music and songs. Capacity is really limited, so if you’ve been missing live music, this is your chance to snag a spot. The concert series promises to be unconventional and “radically communal,” where the audience will play a part in making the songs come to life. After 18 months without concerts in our lives, it sounds like exactly what we need!

Where: Meridian Hall, 1 Front St E
When: Until October 30th


Canada’s premier scream park is running for its 28th year and it’s as spooky as ever. There are 7 haunted walkthrough mazes to explore and over 120 live actors ready to terrify you to your core. Beware of monsters and ghouls lurking around every corner at this 15,000 sq ft destination. Once you’re ready to have a little fun, you can head over to the fully licensed Vampire Lounge as a reward for all the terror you endured.

Where: 80 Interchange Way
When: October 27th — October 31st

Horror Hallways

Enter if you dare into this “seemingly neverending maze of horror” just north of Toronto in Richmond Hill. “Tremble in complete darkness and get ready to be thrilled by our devil’s work,” the description says. This immersive experience will make you feel as if you’ve stepped into a real-life Halloween nightmare — that is, if you’re brave enough to even enter the haunted halls.

Where: 9350 Yonge St
When: Until October 31st

Legends of Horror

It’s the last week you’ll be able to explore a transformed Casa Loma as a terrifying immersive experience. Wander through a 2 km trail through the castle’s gardens, tunnels and some of the “darkest spaces never open to the public,” where theatrical experiences and elaborate sets will haunt you at every turn. The “crescendo” of the experience will bring the walls of the castle to life through incredible 3D projections.
