April 24-26, 2015

First Star Psychic Fair: Don’t underestimate the power of the psychic world. Otherwise you could end up like Josh Baskin in Big — looking all over town for the wish-granting Zoltar Speaks to reverse your altered fate. Whether you’re a believer or a skeptic — psychics, clairvoyants, palm readers, and mediums await you at the second-annual fair. Friday to Sunday. Exhibition Place, Queen Elizabeth Building, 180 Princes’ Blvd. Admission: $15, children 12 and under free. fspsychicfairs.com

Le Tour de Café: Fancy a beignet with your café crème? Coffee and pastries are always a good idea because life is sweet. Tour the best java and pastry shops in Corktown and Riverside, devour some tasty offerings, learn the history of coffee, watch a roasting demonstration, as you explore the neighbourhoods. Saturday, tour starts at 10:30 a.m. and lasts three-and-a-half hours. Various locations. Tickets: $45 + HST (all inclusive). savourtoronto.com

Hot Docs: Music legend Mavis Staples tries to change the world with her unique blend of gospel, blues, soul, and rock. Colonialism has left India, but English remains the language of power. Mavis! and English India are two of 210 films being screened at this year’s documentary festival, one of the largest in North America. The documentaries are from 45 countries around the world, including Canada. It started Thursday and runs until May 3. Admission: $17 for screenings; $22 for special events. hotdocs.ca

Festival of Beer – Spring Sessions: The weather teased us into believing patio season arrived early, but the calendar still says spring. To prepare for summer bliss, sample some beer and tasty delights from foods trucks. Some of the vendors include Steam Whistle, Mill Street, Oyster Boy, and Smoke’s Poutinerie. Friday to Saturday. Sherbourne Common , 61 Dockside Dr. Cost: $30. beerfestival.ca

Strange Beauty: How do you define beauty? Consider that as you explore Tangled Art + Disability’s multi-faceted exhibit at 401 Richmond featuring theatrical pieces, dance, and other art work. If you want to see all seven shows on Saturday, make sure you do so before 5 p.m. After, a closing night celebration will be held at the Imperial Pub ( 54 Dundas St. East) at 8 p.m. 401 Richmond St. W.
