Early bird $10 tickets on sale:

Kaleidoscope is a new kind of event – a multi-sited shindig/adventure/roaming-art-music-party, from 4pm to 4am, designed especially for you to explore the city, community, music and art, just like you would at a festival in some desert or forest! Something for everyone in spaces for all; random meetings everywhere, what kind of fun/weird/wonderful thang can you brang? Are you ready to chase the party?

Your wristband gets you into 10 different spaces where you can enjoy things like:
Live Music – DJs – Art Gallery – Burlesque – Sing Alongs – Projector Jams – Body Painting – Fire Performance – Karaoke – Fashion Show – Belly Dancing – Bondage Demonstration – BBQ – Fire Pit – Cuddle Puddle/Plounge – Workshops – Makerspace – Flame Effects- Dirty Bingo – Comedy – Circus Arts – Talent Showcase – Interactive Art Pieces

Events are staggered through the day from 4pm to 4am. All event spaces are within biking/walking distance of each other with a cluster at Bloor and Ossington and another at Dufferin and Geary. Wear your fuzzy costumes aka playa coats, blinkify aka put lights on your bikes, and visit as many of the hot spots as you can! This is not a pub crawl, events are happening at multiple locations all at the same time. It is up to you to decide what path you want to cut through all the art.
