June 5-7, 2015

Mega Pet Adoption Weekend: Pets can brighten up your day and make you laugh, and all they want from you is love and some belly rubs. Over 700 dogs and cats need a good home, and you can offer them one. The adoption fee is $25 for a spayed, neutered and vaccinated pet. Friday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Queen Elizabeth Building, Exhibition Place, 200 Princes’ Blvd. petsmartcharities.org

Mac ‘n Cheese Festival: What’s better than mouth-watering mac and cheese? A festival celebrating its cheesy goodness. Toronto chefs will be competing to win over your taste buds with their take on the classic dish. Relax in the beer garden as you listen to live music and street performers. Money raised from the event will help FoodShare Toronto deliver affordable fresh food to low-income communities. Free admission, prices vary for tasting tokens. Liberty Market, 171 East Liberty St. Friday (6-10 p.m.), Saturday (11 a.m. to 11 p.m.) and Sunday (noon to 4 p.m.). macandcheesefestival.ca

Royal Conservatory of Music Open House: If you or your child is interested in taking music lessons at the conservatory — which was founded in 1886 — explore what it has to offer at this meet and greet. Try out free lessons, meet the faculty, partake in music appreciation, and check out student concerts. Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Royal Conservatory of Music, 273 Bloor St. W. rcmusic.ca

Walk for Alzheimer’s: Lace up your shoes and hit the pavement this weekend to help people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Money raised from the walk, which is being held in four locations in Toronto, goes to help those who have the disease and their loved ones, and fund research into finding a cure. Saturday. Locations: Centre Island (Toronto Island Park), Etobicoke (Etienne Brule Park), Midtown (Sherwood Park), and North York (G Ross Lord Park).alz.to

Haunted Toronto scavenger hunt: Mwhahahahaha … who says ghosts and scary tales are only reserved for Halloween? Toronto’s past is summoning the present in this Urban Capers scavenger hunt that uncovers some of the city’s upscale haunted past. Teams of two to six brave souls set out in the dark to gather answers to questions. Friday, 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. urbancapers.com
