Hang out at a street festival

Like food events in the city, summer in the Toronto is the season of street festivals. These are a fantastic opportunity to get to know a neighbourhood and interact with the local community. Some of this year’s street festivals include Big on Bloor (July 20, 2019), Salsa on St. Clair (July 6-7, 2019), Dundas West Fest (June 7-8, 2019), Taste of Lawrence (July 5-7, 2019) and Taste of the Danforth (August 9-11, 2019).


10 Can’t-miss Summer Festivals in Toronto

Summer is festival central in Toronto and no matter what puts a smile on your face, be it food, beer, art, music or all four, there’s a festival in the city you should probably add to your warm weather bucket list. But how do you narrow down the best options since you can’t see and do everything? We have you covered. Read on for our picks for 10 of the best festivals to touch down in Toronto this summer:

Toronto’s Port Lands might not be as well-trod as say, Harbourfront or the Distillery District, but that’s about to change. Hearn Generating Station, a decommissioned power plant, will be home to Luminato for two weeks from June 10 to 26. The multi-arts festival will be celebrating its 10th year and transforming the soaring Hearn into a celebration of art in all its forms: theatre, music, dance, visual art, film, and more. What started off as a 400,000 square foot abandoned power plant will be a hive of creative energy for Luminato that features art installations, a theater, music venues, galleries, and even restaurants and bars.

Foodies rejoice: Taste of Toronto is back for another year at Fort York’s Garrison Common from June 23 to 26. Unlike a lot of food festivals where it feels like you’re spending more time in line for food than actually enjoying the food, it’s smooth sailing at Taste of Toronto. Some of Toronto’s best chefs and restaurants will be represented, serving up 54 unique dishes to sample. In addition to snacking on gourmet goodies, there will be live cooking demos, tutored wine tastings, and more.

3. TD Toronto Jazz Festival

Nathan Phillips Square will once again be the center of what has become one of the premier jazz festivals in North America, happening June 24 to July 3. This year’s fest, which is now in its 30th year, will see more than 1,500 artists performing in over 350 concerts, some of which will be free. Nathan Phillips Square will see the bulk of the action, but 40 other venues across the city will also host performances. Some of this year’s featured performers include Sarah McLachlan, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Gregory Porter, and the Oliver Jones trio.

Enjoying something fresh off the grill is a quintessential aspect of summer. If you agree, you might want to get yourself to Centennial Park in Etobicoke June 30 to July 3 for Toronto Ribfest. Over a dozen rib vendors will be serving up succulent BBQ and when you’re not wiping BBQ sauce off your face, you can listen to live music happening every day during the four-day festival.

5. Toronto Festival of Beer

Since summer and beer go hand in hand, it’s no surprise that there are multiple beer festivals happening in Toronto from now until September. One of the biggest and best is the Toronto Festival of Beer happening July 22-24 at Exhibition Place. Beer fans can sample brews from over 120 brands from around the world while listening to live music and noshing on various food on offer.

6. Toronto Food Truck Festival

Food trucks in Toronto aren’t as much of a fixture as they are in, say, New York or Portland. But that’s been steadily changing over the last few years with more and more mobile eateries hitting the Toronto streets. Many of them convene at Woodbine Park July 29 to 31 for the third annual Toronto Food Truck Festival. Choose from offerings from over 30 food trucks serving up all manners of sweet and savory dishes. Some of the trucks this year include I Love Lasagna, Heirloom, Fidel Gastro’s, Busters Sea Cove, Portobello Burger, and plenty more.

7. T&T Waterfront Night Market

Another summer fest happening July 22 to 24 is the ever-popular T&T Waterfront Night Market in Toronto’s Port Lands adjacent to the T and T Supermarket. Now in its seventh year, much of the focus here is on food, specifically Asian-inspired street food. But the multifaceted festival also features an interactive sports zone, live entertainment, film screening, and a showcase of graffiti art.

8. Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition

There’s no better time than summer to enjoy art outdoors and the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, the largest of its kind in Canada, is the perfect chance to do just that. Browse works by both established and emerging artists at Nathan Phillips Square July 8 to 10. The rain-or-shine event will see 314 visual artists setting up shop to showcase their work for an estimated 100,000 art fans.

9. Krinos Taste of the Danforth

Head to Toronto’s east end for an annual summer favorite: Krinos Taste of the Danforth. Throngs of people take over Greektown for what is Canada’s largest street festival, happening August 5 to 7. The big draw here are the multiple food stations doling out eats from the array of area restaurants, but there will also be live entertainment on multiple stages, a kids’ zone, contests, and a whole lot more.

10. Toronto Urban Roots Festival

Toronto Urban Roots Festival (TURF) is happening September 16 to 18 at Fort York’s Garrison Common. The two-day music festival will feature four stages and 44 artists. So far the first wave of 19 artists has been announced with more to come, including headliners. Artists already announced include James Bay, Death Cab For Cutie, Matt Mays, the Sheepdogs, Barenaked Ladies, and Rheostatics, among many others.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that, with the Government of Ontario and the Government of Canada each coming up with $5.5 million for a total of $11 million, the CNE will survive until 2022 and return to an in-person event for that year. The annual fair is a major contributor to the local economy and an important part of our (Toronto’s and Canada’s) heritage.
By that time, the pandemic would most likely be behind us – we’ve no doubt suffered enough – in terms of lockdowns, restrictions, lives lost, isolation – it would be time to come out and celebrate.


Toronto’s Waterfront Night Market Will Take Place July 19-21 - Recipes

It seems like there are more and more Street Food Festivals popping up in Toronto these days that it's hard to keep up with them all. I literally had to squeeze in checking out the T&T Waterfront Night Market after a meeting and before a dinner party on a Saturday night a couple of weeks ago. There were back to back food festivals competing all weekend.

This was my second time going to the T&T Night Market so I knew what to expect this time around. The first thing you get hit with when you enter the gates to the parking lot of the T&T store is the smell of smelly feet or something. It's a bit off putting if you don't know what it is. Luckily the first year that I went I saw a news report about it and knew to expect the Smelly Tofu scent that wafts around different stalls at the market. This year it was the first stall you walk by on the way in so you really couldn't miss it. There were also a couple of other vendors making it as well so you were bound to smell it a lot. I ran into my friend at the market and she kept saying "What's that smell", she didn't know about the Smelly Tofu I guess. I had tried it the last time I went to the night market so I knew exactly what it was. It doesn't taste the way it smells luckily. It's just fried Tofu and they add different sauces on top depending on the vendor.

What I like about this festival is that it's not like any of the other street festivals in the city and the only other street festival like it happens in Markham where there is a large Asian population. This event was brought to Toronto by the T&T market to duplicate Night Markets that happen in Asia where small street vendors have pop up stands selling all kinds of meats on skewers and all kinds of seafood and other small bites and a lot of hand held food. Seeing it in Toronto is a little shocking for the first time. The smells, the smoke, the food you see that you don't see anywhere else around town. You do feel a bit like you are transported to an Asian Street Night Market.

What it is also great for is for people that have immigrated from Asia and miss foods they might have had there and the feel of where they came from. For people from Toronto it's a chance to experience something different. Try some interesting foods they might never have tried before like the Smelly Tofu or Taro spirals or even the Pancake I tried that was delicious.


I really love these festivals because they are free to get in and you can sample as much or as little as you like. It's meant for the adventurous eaters. If you are looking for hot dogs and hamburgers you are in the wrong place. Because I was on my way to a dinner party I couldn't eat as much as I would have liked to try.

I had a chicken skewer, the Okanomiyaki pancake and I shared the Taro spiral with my friend.

These few things filled me up quite a bit but I was really enjoying taking these photos of all the food and the vendors. It's the kind of place that hits all of the senses.

The only thing that changed was the parking. Once again the getting there and parking was the difficult part. They had a parking lot right across and they charged $5 the last time I was there but for some reason I paid $10 for a different lot on the other side of the T&T lot but I could redeem the ticket for a fan at T&T but I didn't bother to do that. I guess there way of getting you to shop in the Store.

I am not sure why the other lot was closed but it created a jam up of cars looking for parking. I got there when it opened on the Saturday about 5pm and stayed for a couple of hours. By the time I left there were throngs of people getting off buses and huge family groups and friends walking towards the event. The last time I went I waited in long lineups for some of the foods so I knew to go early this time and get there before it gets crammed with people.

If you love seafood and things on sticks, this is the perfect event for you. The prices of most of the foods are fairly reasonable as well.
For people like me that can't venture over to Asian to experience the authentic Night Market this is the next best thing and saves on the pocket book and the packing. Look out for the Markham Night it Up or the T&T Waterfront Market next summer if you are a food adventurer.
