Another weekend has come and gone, but have no fear, Curiocity is here. We live in one heck of a city, after all, so there’s no surprise that there is plenty to do. Here are some of the best things to do in Toronto this week.

Cirque du Soleil – Corteo

It’s magical, it’s mystical, it’s the perfect escape into fantasy. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil show before then you know what we’re talking about, and if you haven’t, well there’s no time like the (Christmas) present!…we are very sorry for that one.

Where: Scotiabank Arena, 40 Bay Street
When: Wednesday, December 12 – Sunday, December 16
Time: Times Vary
Cost: $70 and Up


The fifth and final night of these indie rock darlings jamming on the Danforth Music Hall stage will surely be a wicked way to kick off the week. Grab a drink, get into the groove, and avoid any possibility of the Monday’s with this show.

Where: Danforth Music Hall, 147 Danforth Avenue
When: Monday, December 10
Time: 7 PM
Cost: $30 and Up

Free Female Directors Short Film Festival

Join some other cinema-lovers to check out this showcase of some of the best female-directed short films from around the world. It’s a celebration every movie fan can get behind, and considering that it’s free you absolutely can’t beat it.

Where: Carlton Cinema, 20 Carlton Street
When: Thursday, December 13
Time: 7 PM

A Christmas Carol

Take in the Charles Dickens’ classic this year at the Campbell house to really get yourself into the spirit of Christmas. Sure, we’ve all heard or seen the story tons of times, but there’s a charm in tradition so why not treat yourself! This immersive adaptation is sure to be The Christmas Carol in a way you’ve never experienced before.

Where: Campbell House Museum, 160 Queen Street W
When: Tuesdays – Sundays, December 12 – December 22
Time: Times Vary

Happy Place at Harbourfront Centre

We know we keep plugging this spot, but it’s here for a short period of time so we wanna make sure you take advantage of it! So, what should you expect from this Instagram-famous place of wonder? How about the world’s LARGEST confetti dome, 20,000 square feet of sparkly attractions, and a ‘superbloom’ room that will host over 40,000 ‘immersive flowers’ and a ball pit.

When: Closed Tuesdays, open until January 1
Time: Weekdays, 11 AM – 8 PM; Weekends, 10 AM – 8 PM

If the upcoming holidays have you feeling a little too commercial and you could use a dose of edginess that your teen self would be proud of (it’s not a phase, Mom), then get yourself into the punk-rock mood with this Los Angeles quartet.

When: Thursday, December 13
Time: 7 PM
