Keep your shoes on ladies and gentlemen! Toronto is in full swing festival mode. Day after day, all across town in different areas, you get the chance to experience some pretty unique activities. You might even find these events can get pretty granular. The point is that there is so much variety, it is hard to know where to start. While this post won’t list everything, here are three that can start you off and might pique your interest.
You surely could have guessed the theme by now. This event is put on by the St. Patrick’s Parade Society Toronto. It is an event to celebrate everything Celtic on September 14, 2019, right at the Toronto Centre Island. Everything Irish themed will be present; this includes music, dance, traditional performances, food, and more.
Roncesvalles Polish Festival
Again, mostly self-explanatory. This is North America’s largest Polish Festival: the Roncesvalles Polish Festival! A simple transit to the Roncesvalles Village on both September 14 and September 15 can get you access to food, beverage gardens, merchants, restaurants, live performances, and full-immersion into Polish culture. The best part? This event is free for attendees!
Toronto Garlic Festival
Either you hate them or you love them. However, you’re in for a treat if you’re a garlic lover. The Toronto Garlic Festival is coming back for its 9th year! This year’s festival is still with garlic farmers selling their produce to chefs cooking with the product. Fill your senses with the aromatic and savoury smells that come from garlic. Participate in some workshops, watch some cooking demos, taste some wine, and most of all have some fun! Admission is only $5, and the event happens are Artscape Wychwood Barns.
The one potential downside for many festival-goers is the amount of walking you have to do! Of course, good shoes and staying hydrated can help alleviate some of that discomfort. However, what is undoubtedly a good fit are the rooms at the Best Western Plus Toronto Airport Hotel. On top of the spacious accommodations, you’ll find amenities that include a fitness centre, on-site restaurant, and a hot tub and sauna. Even this location’s close proximity to the airport means you can easily jet-set off to your next adventure.
