Events: July 2012

It seems like everyone I know is either leaving to go on or just coming back from a trip. If you’re sticking around for the coming month there is plenty to see and do in the city. From the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair to Daniel Neuhaus’ show in the Distillery District, you can see some art and enjoy a day outside as well.
