Unique Toronto Events this Early October
Buffer Festival (September 28 – October 1)
In essence a YouTube festival, this event brings together “the most acclaimed digital creators and their audiences” (via southeasternontario.ca). It will feature workshops and panel discussions with the site’s top creators and industry professionals, as well as a creator red carpet and premiere screenings of their highest quality work. You can buy individual tickets to various events through the weekend or, if you’re feeling up to it, $150.00 for an all-access pass.
Humber Bay Butterfly Habitat Wildflower Planting Event (October 2)
If you’re into the outdoors and giving back to the community, join volunteers and the city in Humber Bay Park helping this butterfly habitat plant native wildflowers. All you need is to dress for the weather and you’re set! Groups larger than 10 should make sure to email firstname.lastname@example.org to allow for accommodation.
Façade by Osvaldo Napoli (October 4 – 27)
Napoli was born in Montevideo, Uruguay and emigrated to Canada in 1975. He is a self-taught sculptor and painter whose work revolves around “people in general and the intricacies of social behaviour” and his fascination of “the complexity of the human mind and the mysteries about how we all perceive reality” (via torontoart.ca). Catch his exhibit in the Urban Gallery at 400 Queen Street East.
