Essential to Toronto: Taste of the Danforth

Get souvlaki (and more!) hot off the grill at Taste of the Danforth

AUGUST 6 TO 8 This weekend, one of Toronto’s most established ethnic neighbourhoods closes its main street and welcomes more than one million guests for a hotly anticipated party. In the heart of Greektown, the annual Taste of the Danforth invites locals and visitors to share in Hellenic hospitality, culture and cuisine—from mezes to souvlaki—grilled before your eyes. Become Greek for the day while enjoying additional attractions, including stunt shows by Zero Gravity street performers and music from members of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Visitors can also work up an appetite at the Sports Zone, featuring athletic challenges devised by Toronto’s pro sports teams, or cool down in the wine and beer gardens. On Danforth Avenue, between Broadview and Jones avenues, free; call 416-469-5634 or visit here for further details.
