Searching for what to do in Toronto this week? There are always cool events and exhibitions going on, but sometimes all that choice can be a little overwhelming. That’s why we’ve put together a weekly list of the most interesting art and design events going on in the city. If you missed out on what to do last week, there is still time to check out the events that are on until December. Take a look at some re-posts and new posts below!
The Happy Place

There is still time to check out The Happy Place in Toronto at the Harbourfront Centre until January 1, 2019! Founded by Jared Paul and opened originally on November 20, 2017, this massive pop-up experience is filled with larger than life size installations, multi-sensory immersive rooms, and dozens of moments curated to Capture Your Happy. Visited by more than 100,000 guests during our SOLD-OUT run in Los Angeles, the highly anticipated HAPPY PLACE Toronto launch will bring smiles to thousands more. Highlights include: dancing in the middle of world’s largest indoor Confetti Dome,  jumping off of a larger than life double rainbow into a pot of happiness, and posing inside HAPPY PLACE’s signature rubber ducky bathtub of fun!
