We are six social

Live in the moment

We believe in the power of music and life. This power amplifies the culture that makes Toronto so unique. Our vision is to share and celebrate Toronto's culture through our events, and spread that across Canada.

Founded

in 2018

Moving to Kingston after spending our youth in Toronto, we recognized the contrast between the two cities in the way of life and vibes. We realized many of our friends missed that culture and vibes that our favourite city radiated. Six Social was founded to host events authentic to Toronto's spirit.  We hope our events bring together an energetic group that appreciate our philosophy and are ready to send it.

ADMIN TEAM

Johnny

Guo

Co-Founder

Born and raised in Shanghai, China, Johnny moved to Toronto at the age of 14 by himself. As he learned more about the Toronto culture, he was amazed by the good vibes and pride that he sensed from Toronto natives. As an outgoing and social personality, Johnny soon became the go-to high school friend for the 'wys this weekend' and 'which party should we go to' messages. At Queen's University, he continued to add his energy to the first-year parties that he frequented but found the spirit of the city missing in the university town atmosphere. Using Toronto's culture as an inspiration, Johnny co-founded The Six Social to bring his memory of Toronto's party culture to Queen's. As The Six Social is expanding rapidly, Johnny hopes to deliver the best parties throughout Canada and eventually step on the international platform."

MO

Moahid

Co-Founder

Mo is fascinated by global differences in the way of life — having been to over 29 countries, he found inspiration in notable customs and nuances that make each place unique. Mo realized that Toronto derived its individuality from the diverse collection of people and ideas that have shaped everything in the metropolis: from the streets to the cuisine. He started Six Social to preserve Toronto's party culture and transform the nightlife experience of his university friends; those who missed Toronto or hadn't experienced the city's spirit yet. He looks forward to sharing Toronto's culture on the national stage with Six Social and contributing to the city that he is proud to belong to. Currently, Mo is exploring Western Canada, and in his free time, he enjoys swimming, skiing, and completing the required hours for his helicopter license.
