Taste of the Danforth

The unsettling weekend weather - with the risk of thunderstorms on top of the sweltering humidity - couldn't keep away the crowds at Taste of the Danforth this year. For three days, Danforth Avenue between Broadview and Jones was home to tasty food, live music, silly games, and some pretty good shows.

Authentic Greek and Mediterranean flavours were the star attraction including delicious chicken souvlaki, pork pita, spinach pies, grilled quails, baklava as well as typical event snacks like corn on the cob and popcorn. Vendors from nearly 500 local businesses and restaurants were out in full swing, plating meals for the long lines of hungry festival attendees.
