Queen West West hosts the Parkdale Arts and Crafts Festival this weekend, July 14 and 15 from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Organized by the Parkdale/Liberty Economic Development Corporation (PLEDC), the festival is intended to “promote and celebrate the diversity of arts and culture in Parkdale.” We’re mostly going for the beer garden and knitted finger puppets.
If toothpick bird feeders and resin jewelry aren’t your thing, there is live music going on all day, all weekend. Indie folk rocker Justin Rutledge plays at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, and the recently reunited 80s new wave sensation, The Spoons, are headlining on Sunday.
Torontoist will see you there—we’ll have further coverage this weekend.
