Things to do in Toronto during spring
See the cherry blossoms at High Park
High Park is a gorgeous spot to visit year-round, but it’s the cherry blossoms blooming during spring that drive visitors from all across Toronto.
Cherry blossoms make High Park one of the cutest spring photo spots in Toronto!
Also known as sakura, cherry blossoms are a delicate flower that typically bloom in late April.
There’s actually a whole site dedicated to updates about the cherry blossoms in High Park called Sakura in High Park!
The flowers only stay in bloom for about a week or two, so the lifespan is very short.
It’s usually packed during the peak bloom, but the trees are currently fenced off from the public.
LOCATION: 1873 Bloor St. West, Toronto, ON
Ride your bike through Tommy Thompson Park
Tommy Thompson Park is one of the neatest spots to go for a bike ride in Toronto.
It’s a little urban escape within the city, and the views are fantastic!
It’s also one of the best spots to go bird-watching in Toronto, especially when the birds migrate during the spring.
Thousands of birds of over 300 different species pass through Tommy Thompson during the spring and fall!
They even do tours here for the annual Spring Bird Festival at Tommy Thompson Park.
If you’re looking for more fun trails to cycle on, I’ve got a blog post all about the best Toronto bike trails.
LOCATION: 1 Leslie St, Toronto, ON
Stroll through Kensington Market during Pedestrian Sundays
Kensington Market is one of the absolute cutest neighbourhoods in Toronto, and there are so many fun things to do in the area.
Pedestrian Sundays at Kensington Market begin on May 31st every year, and run all the way until October 25th.
It’s exactly what it sounds like: a completely pedestrian-friendly, vehicle-free Sunday!
You can do all your vintage shopping, ethnic grocery shopping, and just some good ol’ exploring without having to worry as much about bumping shoulders with strangers.
If you’re looking to do fun guided tours in the area, I’d definitely recommend checking out this Canadian food tour in Kensington Market, or this 2-hour Kensington Market and Chinatown walking tour.
LOCATION: Kensington Market, Toronto, ON
Shop at the One of a Kind Spring Show
If you’re looking for unique stores in Toronto, you’ll find plenty of them at the One of a Kind Spring Show.
It’s a whole show dedicated to Canadian makers and companies, and you can shop all kinds of fun goodies and unique items, like these super cute Pokémon planters from Homebody Collective!
The OOAK Show happens at the Enercare Centre every spring and winter, and it’s definitely worth making a visit every year.
LOCATION: Enercare Centre, Toronto, ON
Watch a Toronto Blue Jays game
The Toronto Blue Jays start their season every spring, and it’s worth even watching the home opener in person if you can (next year, of course).
What I love about Jays games is that they’re actually affordable, so even non-sports fans (like me lol) are willing to actually go out to watch a game.
It’s always super nice when the roof is off, but if it’s rainy or gloomy (gah spring), the roof will be closed!
LOCATION: Rogers Centre, Toronto, ON
See a show at Canadian Music Week
Canadian Music Week is a festival celebrating all things music here in Toronto, and it happens every spring.
While part of CMW is dedicated to the music industry itself, there are actual live performances by artists in different venues across Toronto as well!
Tokyo Police Club and Born Ruffians are both local bands I love, and they performed at CMW back in 2019.
If you’re a music lover, snag yourself some tickets to a show!
LOCATION: Toronto, ON
Watch a documentary at the Hot Docs Festival
You probably know of TIFF, but have you heard of Hot Docs?
The Hot Docs Festival is another part-industry, part-entertainment festival that happens in Toronto every spring.
If you’re big on watching documentaries, you’ll definitely love the Hot Docs Festival.
It’s the largest documentary festival in North America, and the ultimate event for doc lovers!
LOCATION: Toronto, ON
