June 12-14, 2015

Honda Indy: The need for speed will once again be satiated when the Indy revs into town, transforming one of Toronto’s main roadways into a roaring race track. The 2.84-kilometre, 11-turn street circuit stretches across a large portion of Lake Shore Boulevard before twisting through Exhibition Place. The fun starts Friday with practice runs and fan-friendly events before culminating with the big race on Sunday. Exhibition Place, 200 Princes’ Blvd. hondaindytoronto.com

Toronto Craft beer week: There’s a lot more to beer than Budweiser, and this 10-day event will provide an eclectic array of suds to satisfy any palate. The province-wide celebration of Ontario craft beer will feature more than 50 craft brewers at hundreds of events, with several in Toronto. June 12-21. Various venues. www.ocbweek.ca

Beaches arts and crafts show: The works of over 150 artists, artisans and designers will be on display at this long-standing event. Whether you’re seeking a work of art, gourmet food, or something practical for the house, you’ll be sure to find something to your liking. Here’s something more to like — admission is free. Kew Gardens park, 2075 Queen St. E. Saturday, 10 a.m – 6 p.m. beachesshow.ca

Annex Family Festival: For the 19th year this festival will celebrate the heritage and diversity of one of Toronto’s oldest neighbourhoods. The one-day festival attracts over 20,000 visitors with its variety of live musical acts and a children’s village with interactive activities and amusement rides. Bloor Street West between Bathurst Street and Spadina Avenue. Sunday. annexfamilyfestival.org

Bike Tour at Tommy Thompson Park: This casual pedal through the park will provide some healthy exercise, and knowledge about the habitat restoration projects that have made the park of one of Toronto’s most coveted examples of urban wilderness. Sunday. 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. Register atBikeTourTTP.Eventbrite.ca. Pay what you can, $5 suggested.
