Absolut Makerfest is coming to Toronto on August 9th, celebrating the cultural impact of Canada’s emerging “makers”. The maker community is made up of world-class artists, inventors, tinkerers and entrepreneurs who combine traditional activities such as metalworking, woodworking and craft with technology-driven creativity, including 3D-printing, device hacking, electronics, robotics and more.
Toronto’s own Eric Boyd (Sensebridge) and Jonathan Moneta (MakeLab) are among the list of celebrated “makers” who will be exhibiting their work at Makerfest. You’ll also be able to see works from Marc Reeve-Newson, Derek Gaw, Corey Clayton and Steven Enns.
This special event will also play host to 2 celebrity “makers” of their own kind, featuring a DJ set by Q-Tip from the legendary A Tribe Called Quest, along side performer Theophilus London!
Join us on August 9th at 99 Sudbury for what promises to be a unique mash-up of art, technology, music and of course cocktails!
(Space is limited. Email does not guarantee admission. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.)

In a city as big as Toronto we sometimes get stuck in our comfort zone and forget to explore what the rest of the city has to offer. A recent study commissioned by American Express, reveals more than half (53%) of Canadians feel stuck in their comfort zone, and almost everyone (98% of respondents) believe exploring our home towns or cities helps us live a more enriched life.
Toronto is filled with so much potential, not only the people, but the places. At 1 LOVE T.O. we constantly get the chance to explore and be #InspiredBy the different places throughout our city.
We’ve selected 5 of our ‘potentials places’ that highlight areas in the city where we get inspired through healthy living, fashion and style, music, reading and food/cooking.
1. Healthy Living: When it comes to clearing our minds and taking a break from the daily grind, while staying healthy and active, we head over to High Park to hike the trails. You can’t help but be inspired when you’re surrounded by mother nature.
2. Fashion: If you’re anything like us, we love to people watch! On any given day you can pull up a chair, or find a spot on the giant rock in Yorkville Park and you’ll see all different types of style. Summertime is the best time to get inspired by this place.
3. Music: There’s something special about watching a concert outdoors! We’ve always been inspired by live music at the Molson Amphitheatre, especially in recent years with the now iconic OVO Fest. Seeing artists from Toronto like Drake, Kardinal and The Weeknd share the same stage as Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Eminem, TLC, Stevie Wonder, (the list goes) is nothing but inspirational.
5. Food: Shopping for food is almost as much fun as eating! Wandering around St. Lawrence Market has always been something we enjoy. Seeing the different types of food, people and the history of that building is all inspiring to us.
We want you to help us ‘realize the potential’ of Toronto by telling us your favourite places and hidden gems that provide you with inspiration?! Tweet your suggestions to @1LOVETO & @AmexCanada using the hash-tag #InspiredBy or leave a comment below.
