Pride Parade – SOCIAL

Costumes, Choreography and Colour! Pride Festival weekend’s premier event is the Pride Parade! With 150+ participating groups marching, the Toronto Pride parade has become one of the largest in North America. There will be unforgettable performances, floats, marchers, and all the glitter you can handle! Parade begins at 2PM down at Bloor and Church St! Anderson Cooper / Kathy Griffin, watch out! We have Toronto Pride’s first ever parade emcee. Drag performer Miss Conception will be hosting a play-by-play of the parade on Sunday June 25 as it makes its way down Yonge Street. With a prime seat, Miss Conception will be providing colour commentary and interacting with our guests as the parade marches by. You’ve been promised, expect the unexpected.

Pride Toronto Street Fair – SOCIAL

Take a stroll through the Village (Church and Wellesley) and connect with some of the incredible organizations participating in this year’s Pride Toronto Street Fair. Enjoy products from local artisans and a diverse selection of delicious food for your enjoyment at the marketplace. Look out for the health and wellness organizations throughout the Streetfair and learn about the exciting, engaging, and lifesaving work they’re doing in our community. Today’s hours go from 12PM-11PM

 

Trashed and Wasted – SHOPPING

In addition to the food, performances and community celebrations at Pedestrian Sundays in Kensington Market over the summer, Trashed & Wasted adds to the fun with a flea market and craft beer garden on select weekends. Launched by Brock Shepherd, the founder of Kensington Brewing Company, the pop-up event encourages waste reduction through recycling and reusing garbage. At Pedestrian Sundays, Trashed & Wasted focuses on local artisans’ upcycled goods, including refurbished furniture and clothing. A themed beer garden showcases lesser-known breweries: one Sunday features a selection of out-of-town breweries that aren’t represented in Toronto; another, hopefully with the launch of Kensington Brewing Company’s brew house and tap room, hyper-local breweries. In September, as a nod to Oktoberfest, the beer garden has a Germanic feel. Find Trashed & Wasted behind El Gordo Fine Foods starting June 25. Visit their page: facebook.com/trashedandwasted
