From June 22-24 (as in this weekend!), Toronto’s waterfront will come alive with larger-than-life entertainment and activities for visitors young and old at the Redpath Waterfront Festival. No giant rubber ducky this year but there will be a beach ball installation called HTO Pendulum Wave as well as drinks, eats, boats, a circus show and lots of family fun too.
The Royal Canadian Navy returns to the festival, this time bringing a renowned tall ship along for the journey. The HMCS Oriole is a sail-training vessel with a great history, and it hasn’t been in the Great Lakes for over 25 years.
The Waterfront Artisan Market returns to HTO Park for weekends throughout the summer. Sample delicious local food and stumble upon new home-made products. This year’s market will feature 50 bakers, chefs and artisans.
The festival is excited to partner with the Wine & Spirit Festival once again. Celebrating its 10th year, this summer favourite returns to Sugar Beach with live music, entertainment and expertly crafted cocktails.
Family Fun Zone
The Family Fun Zone will have loads of interactive activities for kids of all ages and abilities. The whole family can enjoy creative art activities put on by Toronto School of Art and kids can keep busy and engaged with crafts and educational activities from Parks Canada and Live Green Toronto. Billy Bishop Airport’s Billy the Flying Fox will also be there for photo ops with kids young and old.
