Saturday’s top picks >

Honour Indigenous Peoples Day and the Summer Solstice at the Na-Me-Res Traditional Outdoor Pow Wow. Celebrate diversity at Church Street Public School’s Family Pride and, if you’re 7-12 years old, learn how to strut your stuff at Don Mills Library’s Pride Vogue Dance Workshop. Spend the day playing make believe at the Suburban Steam Punk Festival or go to the Junction’s summer solstice Fiesta. As dusk sets in, head to Sorauren Park and pull up a patch of lawn at a screening of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Sunday’s top picks >

See a concert, take a free class and pet some instruments at The Royal Conservatory of Music’s Wide Open House. Take in a movie in the Sesqui dome and enjoy a bbq at Regent Park’s Party in the Park. Put on something colourful and head to the Pride Parade. Revel in Kensington Market’s car free Pedestrian Sunday or spend the day eating doughnuts at Dufferin Mall’s Donut Festival. Maybe even dance the day away on an open-air dance floor listening to great beats at Luminato’s Breakin’ Convention Park Jam. And, you might just want to spend the afternoon creating your own special light switch plate at DX Kids Days.
