At Downtown Lincoln, we love how Toronto is a city full of activities to enjoy throughout the year. Luckily, this fall is no exception. Make sure you head to one of these many Toronto fall festivals and see just what our wonderful city has to offer.
Give your funny bone a workout with JFL42. This comedy festival offers 10 days of shows from some of the world’s most well-known comedians. Catch headliners like Carol Burnett; John Mulaney and Pete Davidson; Jonathan Van Ness of “Queer Eye”; and Marc Maron. Along with these main acts, you can catch 42 other comedians who are ready to make you laugh. This festival will take place Sept. 19-22 at various venues throughout Toronto.
Get in touch with your inner German (even if you don’t have German heritage) with Toronto’s Oktoberfest. This festival brings a bit of Munich to Toronto, offering delicious German cuisine, plenty of beer — including ERDINGER’s Oktoberfest Brew, which was flown in from Germany specifically for this event — and traditional Bavarian dancers. There will even be polka bands, so dress up in your lederhosen and dirndls and join us Sept. 26-28 at Ontario Place.
