Guinness SPD, the largest St. Patrick’s Day party in Canada, is happening this Saturday, and it’s going to be a fun one. Get ready for 5,000 green-clad party goers descending upon Rebel for the all-day celebration featuring a complimentary pancake breakfast, all-you-can-eat Lucky Charms Bar, Irish fiddlers, life-sized beer pong, photo booths and more across the 45,000-square-foot indoor and outdoor venue.

Watch a new and improved version of Cinderella

It’s a popular fairytale for a reason, but like many fairytales, some of Cinderella’s key messages might be a little… misleading for young viewers. No, young women don’t need wealthy men to rescue them — and the National Ballet hopes to make that clear with James Kudelka’s Cinderella. The performance is on this week until Sunday, and promises to change the story to one that shows equal partnership between Cinderella and her prince. Grab tickets now to give your kids a new kind of fairytale education.

Don your favourite cosplay for Comicon

From Friday to Sunday, get ready for Toronto Comicon! Stars from fan favourites including The Boys, Lord of the Rings, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Flash will be there for Q&As, photo ops and autograph signings, on top of cosplay competitions, workshops, panels and even community meet-ups. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to end off your March Break in style or you’ve been waiting all year to whip out your best cosplay, there will be fun for all ages!

Pit your two pop faves against each other with Fangirl Fantasy

Are you a child of divorce (a fan of both Harry Styles and Taylor Swift)? Fangirl Fantasy is coming to Toronto this Friday night and it will be the perfect opportunity to dance your heart out and bond over your love of both these artists in great company. Happening at Adelaide Hall, it will surely be a night of pop perfection.

Shop vintage with Hippie Market Life

Everyone’s favourite curated vintage vendor market is back this weekend at 1153 Queen St. W. If you’ve been planning on getting some spring shopping done ahead of the warmer weather, now is your chance to do so in a slightly more sustainable (and fashionable!) way — you’ll definitely find some gems as long as you set aside enough time to sort through the sometimes overwhelming selection!
