In addition to listings, NowPlayingToronto.com offers an in-depth look at the people behind some of Toronto’s newest experiences. We interview artists and creators involved with the iconic events that bring this city to life.

With technology developed by ARTSOPOLIS LLC, the Toronto Events Database (T.E.D.) powers NowPlayingToronto.com. T.E.D. captures the most comprehensive and robust events calendar. It extends information about things to do in Toronto to a wider audience through the syndication of data feeds to a network of event calendars. This creates a more streamlined process for promoters by reducing the time and effort to promote shows and events while also maintaining a higher level of accuracy.
