If you’re looking for things to do in Toronto on the Civic Holiday Weekend, you might want to head down to Artfest at the Distillery, a summer art & craft show taking place from August 3-5, 2013. You’ll find artisans selling their paintings, photography, clothes, jewellery and handcrafted housewares. It’s the perfect opportunity to pick up décor items for your home or gifts for those you love.
