Eats and Beats in the Streets


Toronto Family Festivals in Your Community

The summer is more of a sprint than a marathon. With so many great kid-friendly festivals happening, it can be hard to find the good ones, especially those slightly outside our usual haunts. We’ve selected some of our favourites—a mix of oldies-but-goodies and some new loves—for you to experience this fine summer.

We love this idea: the 100 in 1 Day festival consists of citizen-proposed and led ‘interventions’ meant to make the city a better place. Cool ideas include planting a community garden in a canoe and beautifying a school’s chain link fence.

The Kids Zone alone at the Redpath Waterfront Festival is an amazing place with voyageur canoe rides, a huge inflatable beaver (for amazing photo ops), and a pirate ship bouncy castle. Let’s just say that this festival could run all summer long and we still wouldn’t run out of things to do.
