Taste of the Danforth

By: Lisa Ng

One of my all-time Toronto food festivals is back from August 8-10, 2014 in my old Greektown neighbourhood - the Danforth. The Taste of the Danforth is Canada’s largest street Festival, welcoming approximately 1.5 million attendees over the course of just three days. Admission is free and the least crowded day to go is Friday night.

Enjoy free entertainment on three separate stages. Find a celebrity talent on the Celebrity Stage, Greek performers on the Astro Original Greek Stage and an eclectic mix of local and international talent on the Danforth Showcase Stage. 

The Food - Of course there's the one thing that keeps me coming back and that is the FOOD! Make sure you pack lots of cash and small bills because the Danforth will be filled with street vendors from local restaurants. Not only can you expect the classic souvlaki, look for Thai food, roasted corn, fresh fruit and even Indian and Chinese food. I love trying a little bit of everything and most samples range anywhere from $1-10 depending on the size. Bring a pack of wet naps and plan on getting there by subway - it's the easiest way as local lots and street parking will be limited.
