The long weekend may be over, but the fun is not. Sure, it’s a drag to go back to real life after an extra glorious day of freedom, but these awesome socially-distanced things to do will soothe your post-weekend blues. We’re still counting down the days until June 2nd hits and the stay-at-home-order is (hopefully!) lifted. But until then, these outdoor jaunts and virtual events will have to tide us over.

***Editors Note: Due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19, provincial and city guidelines are continually changing. Please double-check business closures and restrictions before proceeding. 

Here are 10 socially-distanced things to do in Toronto this week.


The beautiful (and massive) art displays of the highly anticipated Spring Stations are currently in full swing. Next time you head out for a little mental health walk, be sure to include the locations of these gorgeous sculptures in your route. Over at the Distillery District, you can spot the ARc de Blob, From Small Beginnings, and The Epitonium. At 33 Parliament, you’ll find the sculpture title THROBBER. Both sites are certainly something special to see.

Where: Distillery District & 33 Parliament St
When: Happening all week


This next event is the first and only of its kind. The HAPPENING Multicultural Festival is presented by MUSE Arts and funded by Canada Council for the Arts. It’s a festival made by community artists and taking place over the entire month of May. More than 80 creators and performers from diverse communities are participating. This week, you can catch the virtual launch of the event’s new zine! It’s a great way to celebrate the awesome festival.
