4 of the best places to celebrate Toronto Pride this weekend
Happy Pride month, fam! Toronto Pride weekend is one of the biggest in North America, and it will host some of the best parties in the city this weekend! So, for everyone geared up to see what Toronto has to offer, your hunt for pride-filled events starts here.
The parade runs Sunday, June 23 at 2 PM, starting at the corner of Church and Bloor. We’ve put together a go-to guide to four of the coolest Pride spots in the city for pre and post-parade fun. Enjoy!
Home to 16 unique food spots, each owned and operated by some of Toronto’s best chefs, this is the adult food court we all need in our lives. After a wicked morning of celebrating, pop by for a post-parade bite! Bulldog Coffee will be offering their famous Rainbow Latte, so you can refuel in true pride style. If you’re looking to satisfy that sweet tooth, Short & Sweet Bake Shop will be making pride-themed cupcakes. Expect multicoloured vanilla, vanilla sprinkle buttercream, and pride-themed toppers.
Also, on Saturday, June 22, Assembly Chef’s Hall and Boiler Room will be bringing you SYSTEM X YES YES Y’ALL. So if you’re looking for somewhere to dance the night away, join them from 11:00 pm – 4:00 am. The event will feature DJs from all over the world, including Foreigner, Tygapaw, and Blackcat. Grab your $15 ticket here.
Where: 111 Richmond St W
Hit up King West for a bite at MARBL. It’s ideal to indulge in American-inspired grill favourites. Brunch or dinner, MARBL is the perfect place to grab a bite and soak up the sun on the newly built patio.
Additionally, let’s not forget the stacked drink menu, which includes a long list of cocktails, caesars, and mimosas. Snag a reso before they’re gone!
Where: 455 King St W
Music, food and a killer patio spanning 40,000 sq ft, what more could you ask for? As one of the only places in Toronto that can easily host your large group without a reservation, the newly expanded Grand Bizarre Supper Club and Bizarre Beach Club is a no-brainer during Toronto Pride weekend.
With world-class DJs and a range of incredible vendors including Toms Dairy Freeze, The Food Dudes, Holy Chuck Burger and Buttercut Steaks, dance the night (and the food baby) away on the patio under the stars.
Where: Grand Bizarre Supper Club, 15 Saskatchewan Rd
Your favourite buds will be open all weekend, so you know where the party will be. What’s a trip to Toronto without a visit to Toronto’s first legal cannabis store? Boring, that’s what.
Located in the trendy Queen West neighbourhood and only steps away from Young-Dundas square, add Hunny Pot Cannabis Co. to your list of stops throughout the city, pre-parade or post-parade.
Where: Hunny Pot Cannabis Co., 202 Queen St W
