The time has arrived for the 10th Annual Blackout Party !!! Its the 11th anniversary of the Eastern Seaboard Blackout of 2003, Last year, we gathered at one of Torontos biggest arteries - the intersection of King, Queen and Roncesvalles and continued on to dance and celebrate on the beach and under the stars at Budapest Park.

This is the first year since Lemon Bucket Orkestra was formed that they will NOT be at the Black Out Anniversary.

LBO is on tour all over Canada this summer and they will be in Sherbrook Quebec that night.

We will miss them for sure....but the Party Goes On !

The 2003 Blackout turned out to be an incredible opportunity for us to get out into the streets and other public spaces of Toronto and to meet and engage our respective communities. It was a brief period full of the accidental intimacies we all crave but sometimes overlook in our day to day lives. Join us for a candlelit 10th annual commemoration of the evening that we were reminded what our beautiful city COULD be when we are open to the unexpected and all the gifts it brings.
