Winter will soon be winding down, but the festivities and celebrations in Toronto never will. Residents and visitors can look forward to an extensive variety of activities for any group and any occasion. The following is a list of events you will not want to miss as they make their way to Toronto this February.
The Progress Festival, an international festival of performance and ideas will return this February for its third year in Toronto. The festival, which will take place February 1st through 18th, features a diverse line-up that includes works from around the world. Among these are Race Cards, LOST in TRANS, Contemporaneity 2.0, and Dis Merci. Single tickets are priced at $25, with an option to purchase a 3-Show Progress Pass for $60. Race Cards, however, is a free event and therefore not included in the three-show pass.
TAO: Drum Heart
Tao: Drum Heart will take the stage at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto this February. “Breaking past the traditional notions of taiko, the men and women of TAO continue to create an entirely new art form that is modern yet retains sense of nostalgia.

Stephen Karam’s Tony Award-winning play, The Humans, will open on February 6th at the Bluma Appel Theatre. “Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake has brought his family to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter’s lower Manhattan apartment.
