With over one million attendees in previous years, there was no chance that Torontoist would have forgotten about Taste of the Danforth. One of the most popular cultural events in Toronto begins tonight at 6 p.m. on Danforth Avenue between Chester and Jones Avenue and continues throughout the weekend to make sure you get your fill of souvlaki.
To help you plan out your trip, Taste of the Danforth has put together a handy Google map of participating restaurants and stores (listed in no particular order), with locations of subway stops and Green P parking optionally shown.
The schedule is packed with bits of entertainment every twenty minutes, but you’ll notice a lot of the performers are repeats with only one of the five main stages/zones dedicated to Hellenic-based entertainment. And while Taste of the Danforth is now advertising themselves as a multicultural event with Greek roots, we’re still not quite sure how a show put on by a pole dancing studio at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday fits in.
