If you’re a fan of Stranger Things on Netflix, you will be amazed at the Red Forest inspired world along University Avenue and Osgoode Lane. Step into the creepy Upside Down realm from the sci-fi fantasy and explore the woodsy portals and mystical foliage as you make your way through the twilight universe!
 
This years Special Event will be suspended 45 feet above Nathan Phillips Square! This note worth event features a Hedrick’s Gin Hot Air Balloon that will ensure you get the best view of the art installations and action happening on the streets! You can apply for your chance to get on the balloon on their website, or you can enter a chance to win a ride during the night by heading over to Nathan Phillips Square Saturday September 30th!

Experience the luxury of a starry night in the middle of a light polluted city! STARscape is an installation stretching across an alleyway on Camden Street where you can walk under a canopy of stars. The idea is to place viewers in two worlds, a world of fantasy and the reality of a light polluted sky.
 
Taking place in Nathan Phillips Square, local artist Tings Chak has created a full-scale recreation of a maximum-security prison cell. The tight and claustrophobic setting features real artifacts from actual cells and is intended to mimic the space in which undocumented migrants and refugees conducted a hunger strike. Monument to (Im)mobilization works to mirror this space and allow audience to immerse themselves in the sites of oppression, immobilization and struggle of mobilization.

Viewers looking to gain a new perspective on Toronto are encouraged to check out Here is Where You Hid. The work of art features a dreamlike miniature landscape of Canadian heritage land. This work of art provides a connection with the natural landscape and identity of our surroundings. Combined with a meditative experience through a thoughtful connection, this piece will draw a connection between Toronto’s urban landscape and the viewer.
 
Watch a live installation be built in real time! At Yonge and Dundas Square join Toronto graffiti artist Kwest, as he creates his downtown installation. Sculptures will be made from sneakers, wood, glass and many other recycled and discarded items to be transformed into the symbol; how we treat our planet.
