  • Withrow Park (Bain and Logan Avenues)
  • 6 p.m.

While city parks are usually populated by drunk hipsters, dogs, or goose poo, this is the week that dance takes over. Dusk Dances brings groups from all over Canada to perform four very different choreographies—including a boxing dance battle—in various spots throughout Withrow Park. Follow host Dan Watson as he takes spectators from one eclectic piece to the other.

  • Videofag (187 Augusta Avenue)
  • 8 p.m.

With summer comes Pride, skimpy clothes, camp, and, in some cases, murder. All of these delightful things are rolled into one with Queer Fear, a celebration of homo-horror. The series kicks off with a screening of 1983′s cheese-fest, Sleepaway Camp, presented by The Black Museum. Feel free to come dressed as your favourite character, or wear as little as possible (the venue is tiny and hot). Just don’t ruin the twist ending for those who haven’t seen it, or you may meet a violent end at the hands of rabid horror fans. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
