26 Celebs You Might Run Into In Toronto Over The Next Few Months
Meet your future famous friends.
Toronto will be flooded with A-listers over the next few months. From TIFF to JFL to a barrage of hot concerts and shows, Toronto's occupants will be even cooler than usual!
With all of these entertainers flocking to the city, it wouldn't be abnormal to run into celebrities on your morning Starbucks route or at a chic restaurant in.
Here are some of the hottest stars due to grace The Six over the next couple of months:
1. Leonardo DiCaprio
There is a good chancethis year to promote a documentary feature he stars in. We can't wait to see America's (now officially) Best Actor walk our red carpet and hopefully our streets for some touring afterward!
2. Amy Adams
She stars in two films being screened at this year's TIFF, so we'd say there's a pretty good chance of spotting Hollywood's favourite redhead in the T dot.
3. Jake Gyllenhaal
Gyllenhaal co-stars alongside Amy Adams in Nocturnal Animals and will likely be present at TIFF to promote the film.
Adele will be in Toronto from October 3rd-7th, but is only performing 4 out of 5 nights, meaning that you might be able to spot her around the city on her day off: October 5th.

5. Ryan Gosling
Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling stars in La La Land, which will be screened at this year's TIFF. We're hoping to see him there!
6. Post Malone
Post Malone will be performing at the Sound Academy for one night only on October 5th. However, he has a full day in between his performance in Montreal on the 3rd and Toronto on the 5th, which might mean he plans to spend the other half of his travel day galavanting around Toronto!
7. James Franco
America's hottest weirdo is GUARANTEED to be at this year's TIFF as a judge for the TIFFxInstagram Shorts mini-fest. We can't wait to see him there!
8. Joseph Gordon-Levitt
JoGo-LevLev (let's see if that catches on) plays Edward Snowden in the eponymously titled film and we are expecting to see him represent the flick at TIFF this year, hopefully alongside co-stars Shailene Woodley and Zachary Quinto!
9. Amy Schumer
The Trainwreck star is taking a break from her Comedy Central show to go on tour again, starting at the end of this month! She plans to make a stop in Toronto on November 9th, and we're hoping she also plans to make a stop at a Toronto bar afterward so we can get to know the funny miss!

Washington stars in the reboot of legendary Western film The Magnificent Seven and is expected to be present on TIFF's red carpet this year!
11. Kanye West
Yeezy will be in Toronto from August 30th-31st and we're hoping he'll take some time between concerts to make an appearance at hislocation!
12. Chris Pratt
Chris Pratt stars alongside Denzel Washington in The Magnificent Seven, so hopefully he'll show up with wifey Anna Faris and make a trip out of it. Chris, if you're reading this, and I'm sure you are, here areyou can take Anna to in Toronto!
13. Barbara Streisand
This legendary actress and singer will be performing in Toronto on September 23rd for one night only. Don't miss out!

17. Mark Wahlberg
Marky Mark may be present at TIFF this year for the screening of Deepwater Horizon in which he stars as a drilling rig worker. Maybe we'll catch him at Wahlburger's afterward?
18. Chris D'Elia
The comedian and social media phenomenon will be performing in the Just For Laughs comedy festival on October 1st. He won't be performing anywhere again until the end of October, so perhaps he'll hang out in Toronto for a bit!
Not a surprise, but always a pleasure. Drake is coming back for round two of his Summer Sixteen tour on October 8th and 9th. He's also rumoured to be building a dream mansion on the Bridle Path, so we can expect to see our favourite Torontonian actually hanging around in Toronto in the near future!

Don't forget about Future! He'll be returning to Toronto for round two of the Summer Sixteen with Drake. Hopefully the duo will party it up in the city afterward and we can try and catch them along King St W somewhere!
21. Anthony Jeselnik

We hope to see this brilliant beauty bless the TIFF red carpet at the screening of Queen of Katwe.
Legendary singer-songwriter Sia will be bringing it to the ACC on October 22nd!
