Have you ever started to plan an event in Toronto, only to be shocked by the sky-high prices for venue rentals? Finding a Toronto event venue shouldn’t be this hard!
It’s the unfortunate reality about living in Toronto and the GTA; it’s incredibly expensive. If you’re looking for a place to live, the prices can be simply jaw-dropping. And event planners feel the same pain when they start looking for venues. Toronto event planners are faced with a major hurdle with the rent for a single booking eclipsing the cost of the event itself.
So, with rent being out of control in the city, how can you possibly hold an event without breaking the bank? The secret is that you need to get creative!
Traditional Toronto Event Venues Are Expensive
Rent basically boils down to supply and demand, and there is a LOT of demand out there for Toronto event spaces.
If you’re planning a wedding, we hope you booked the venue two years ahead! And even then, you’re going to be paying through the nose for it. Traditional event spaces know that they can charge premium prices and still find people who will pay them. After all, what’s the alternative?
And what are non-profits, artists, budding entrepreneurs, and small business owners to do if they want to break into the Toronto event market? How do you find an afforable Toronto venue?
Well, here is the dirty little secret about event spaces…
People don’t realize that there’s a cost-effective alternative.
That’s how they get away with it! People think that if they have an event, they MUST rent an expensive location. But it’s a false choice. They have another option:
They could rent a unique space!

Toronto Event Space Availability Can Be a Nightmare
Another excellent reason why you should be looking into unique spaces for your events is availability. Many dedicated event spaces in the city are booked up for months in advance.

Many of our spaces have wide availability because they’re functioning as unrelated businesses 95% of the time!
And who knows; by renting one of these unique venues, you might even discover new businesses and organizations that could be excellent networking partners for the future!
