In the heart of downtown Toronto, there’s a never-ending list of exciting events taking place. For your visit to Toronto take advantage of the big city perks and see creations from world famous creators. 

The Art of Banksy

The buzz around Banksy doesn't fade. This limited exhibit curated by Steve Lazarides showcases 80 original works from the anonymous England-based street artist known for his satire and political statements. The $35 million showcase is the world’s largest collection of Banksy’s work and will be in Toronto until September 2, 2018. However, exhibit times vary and tickets are necessary, so double-check details about The Art of Banksy exhibit before heading out.

Inuit Art at the AGO

If you are unable to reserve tickets for the Banksy exhibit, The Art Gallery of Ontario has its own special exhibit on contemporary Inuit life. From June 16 to August 12 the exhibit, Tunirrusiangit: Kenojuak Ashevak and Tim Pitsiulak, will pay tribute to Canada’s north and the enduring legacy of two of the biggest names in Inuit art. This exhibit is included with general admission and gallery visitors can enjoy free admission every Wednesday night from 6 to 9pm. 

Wicked at Ed Mirvish Theatre

The historic Ed Mirvish Theatre will be home to the musical comedy Wicked from June 20 to August 5, 2018. The classic ‘untold story of the witches of Oz’ has melted the hearts of many and is a must-see broadway production. While the production’s legacy hasn’t slowed since its premiere in 2003, it's only available for a limited time in Toronto so be sure to purchase tickets

ROM Summer Fridays

Spend a night at the museum during The Royal Ontario Museum’s Summer Fridays. Running every Friday from July 6 to September 21, the galleries and exhibits will be open late from 5:30pm to 10:00pm. Drink and listen to live performances among the dinosaurs with an unforgettable view of the city. Every night is different, so check the ROM’s site to see who will be performing each Friday.

These exhibits and shows have travelled far and wide to be in Toronto, but you don’t need to travel far if you plan ahead. Consider staying close in a downtown hotel like Ramada Plaza, where the Ed Mirvish theatre is a block away and the Royal Ontario Museum is only a couple blocks away. Ramada Plaza is right by Allan Gardens, a pocket of nature amidst the busy cityscape, but the city remains at your doorstep with a subway within walking distance to the hotel.  

There will always be something to do in the city, but make it easier by booking your stay at a downtown hotel in advance.
