Toronto gets its first Sri Lankan street festival

Don't fret if you haven't made it to one of the city's many (delicious) summer street festivals yet because Toronto's first ever Kothu Fest is debuting near the end of the season at the Scarborough Civic Centre.

This day-long festival is scheduled for September 13 and it'll celebrate Kothu Roti, a popular Sri Lankan food. If you attend, you'll get the chance to sample variations of this flavourful dish. Afterwards, you can cast your vote for the People's Choice Award to help determine the best Kothu Roti in the city.

Along with Kothu, there will be entertainment throughout the day. And best of all, admission is free. Not familiar with Sri Lankan food? We've rounded out the best Sri Lankan restaurants in Toronto here.

Will you attend Toronto's first Kothu Fest? Let us know in the comments.
