Summerlicious: The kick-off of Summerlicious this weekend means summer is truly here. The culinary celebration of Summerlicious has arrived to show off the delicious cuisines Toronto has to offer.

There will be five events inspired by the 41 nations participating in the Games including tapas in Parkdale and a dinner in Peru. For more information and ticket prices click here.

Salsa on St. Clair: Head down to St. Clair West this weekend for a free event celebrating Latin culture that promises to have everyone dancing in the streets. Pulsing drums and fiesta flavored food starts at noon and runs into the night. For more information visit salsaintoronto.com.

Taste of Toronto: This weekend Torontonians will flock to Fort York where chefs from across Toronto will gather to blow your taste buds away. It is literally foodie heaven in Toronto with close to 50 dishes to savor. A few items already revealed on the menu include crispy BBQ pork tacos, true Northern Atlantic salmon, fresh oysters and cheesy slow-cooked lobster. Tickets can be bought at the door or online.

Brickfete: A world made of Lego? It’s a real thing and it is happening this weekend in Toronto. Lego hobbyists have created unique city layouts, trains, historical buildings, castles, pirates and more for you come take part in all weekend from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Don’t worry, it’s not just for children.

Christie Pits Film Festival: Grab a blanket and sit under the stars while watching a movie at Christie Pits Park. Sunday marks the first movie of the summer and the film starts rolling at sunset.
