Don’t Miss These Toronto Summer Festivals

2020 Toyota Sienna | Downtown Toyota | Toronto, ON

Spring is here and the weather is warming up. If you’re looking for things to do in the summertime, we have you covered! We’ve gathered a couple of ideas for Toronto summer festivals you should put on your calendar this year.

NXNE: North by Northeast

Music and technology come together in the North by Northeast (NXNE) festival. This festival stretches over 10 days from June 7 to June 16 and takes place all across Toronto. The schedule includes a three-day music festival in the heart of the city. This festival mostly focuses on introducing emerging musicians to the masses, though it also looks to incorporate music, gaming, comedy, and interactivity to highlight both technology and the arts.

Fan Expo Canada

From August 22 to August 25 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, you can get in touch with your nerdy side thanks to Fan Expo Canada. This four-day event will give you the opportunity to learn more about your favorite sci-fi, fantasy, comic, and anime worlds. You’ll even get the chance to meet celebrity guests. This year’s lineup will feature big stars like Jeff Goldblum, Zachary Levi, Jason Momoa, and David Harbour.

Benefits of Buying a Toyota Hybrid

Toyota Hybrid | Toronto, ON

Over the past few years, more and more consumers are looking to go green with a hybrid vehicle — and few brands do hybrids as well as Toyota. Here, we take a look at the benefits of buying a Toyota hybrid


Tried and tested technology. Toyota has sold over 12 million hybrids since 1997, which goes to show that the brand’s hybrid technology has been put to the test over the years — and continues to shine. Each model is designed to offer similar performance levels to its gas-powered counterpart, while increasing the amount of time between stops at the gas station. Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive system even makes sure that your driving experience is no different than when you’re behind the wheel of a gasoline-powered engine — besides giving you better fuel efficiency, of course.


Plenty of choice. There are a range of Toyota hybrids to choose from — not just sedans. For instance, if you want something more family-friendly, you can opt for the RAV4 Hybrid crossover or the Highlander Hybrid SUV. The Prius C will offer you a compact option, while Prius Prime offers a plug-in hybrid variant for those who want a PHEV.


Peace of mind. When you purchase a Toyota hybrid, you don’t need to worry about plugging your car in every night unless you want a plug-in hybrid variant. The Hybrid Synergy Drive system utilizes a regenerative braking system to convert braking energy into a charge for your battery, which means you can charge your hybrid vehicle without even having to think about it.
