I don't think I've ever seen this many events happening all on the same day in the Junction Triangle. Bikes, bees, butterflies, beauty, bartering, and boxcars*. Here's a quick rundown. Click the links to get more info about each event.

100 in 1 Day Festival:
Three events that are part of the 100 in 1 Day Festival are taking place in the Junction Triangle, along the West Toronto Railpath. All of them help celebrate the awesomeness of our neighbourhood and surrounding areas:

The Really Really Free Market returns to Campbell Park this Saturday, 10am-4pm.

From the Really Really Free Market Website:

No money. No barter. No exchange. Toronto's Really Really Free Market is returning on June 6th! Bring items that you'd like others to have and take items that others want you to have. You don't need to bring items to take items. We can only accept things that are clean and in working condition - nobody wants dirty socks or broken computer screens. They also don't want underwear, no matter how clean. As a general rule, bring only items in a condition that you yourself would take. We also cannot accept large items as we have no way of disposing of them if nobody takes them. If you do bring a large item, we ask that you leave your contact information with a volunteer so we can contact you if no one takes it.

For the first time ever, Food Not Bombs will be present at the market and will be giving away free and delicious vegan food.

The market is open from 10 am until 4 pm. We stop accepting items at 3 pm and cannot accept anything before 10. Please treat everyone at the market with respect and generosity. We hope to see you there!

100 in 1 Day: Buzz on the Bridge

Details from the organizer, Mark:

Hey Everyone,
I am going to be doing 'Buzz on the Bridge' at Wallace Street bridge again this year as part of 100in1day Toronto on Saturday June 6th. I'm hoping to build off the success of last year's event, which was really great. I'd like to plan something similar to last year, but this year I am hoping to do more ground work early to get some other key partners on board and maybe do more advanced 'advertising'.
If anyone has any thoughts or ideas to contribute, I am all ears. I would like to set up a meeting soon for those who are interested in getting a bit more involved.
I have posted the event on the website at: https://toronto.100in1day.ca and even got a twitter handle for the event @buzzonbridge
There is a 100in1day workshop downtown at MaRS on the evening of April 8 (Wednesday from 6-8) that I will likely attend to get the planning going, if anyone wants to join.
Thanks, bye for now,
Mark
