Taste of Manila Toronto

First ever Filipino street festival in Toronto this weekend

Taste of Manila, the first ever Filipino street festival in Toronto, goes down this weekend at Bathurst and Wilson. Organized by the Philippine Cultural Community Centre, the two-day fest will showcase a broad array of Filipino culture, including street food, live music, and folk dancing. Oh, and perhaps most intriguing of all, the event promises to feature the world's largest boodle fight. Better bring an empty stomach.

This event has flown a bit under the radar leading up to its first run, but should prove a unique addition to Toronto's roster of summer street festivals. Organizers are predicting upwards of 10,000 in attendance at the inaugural event, which will close down Bathurst between Wilson and Allingham Street. Running from 10am to midnight on Saturday and 10am to 6pm on Sunday, the idea is to appeal to families by day and operate as a more boisterous night market in the late hours on Saturday.
