Well, that was fast. Holiday time in Toronto, in all of its festive event-filled glory, has come and gone. 

But that doesn’t mean that the city is in hibernation mode with a holiday hangover. For those with the energy, Toronto is welcoming the first full weekend of the year with a handful of events (granted, not as many as normal, but you still have some solid options).

From magical exhibits to nostalgic comedy roasts, here’s what to do in Toronto this weekend. 

Score Some Great Vintage Finds 
If browsing vintage is your idea of a Sunday well-spent, the Parkdale Sunday Market is back. The weekly market takes over Parkdale Hall, filling it with over 30 vendors who are selling unique clothing, accessories, and collectables you won’t find anywhere else. Find more info here

Hit a Nostalgic Comedy Roast
