Free Entry!

We're taking over Front Street in front of Union Station for a free, two-day backyard party! Sixteen restaurants from across the GTA will offer their signature dishes in a two-day smorgasbord. Chefs take to the stage for free food demonstrations every hour on the hour, with giant chess and Jenga games available, a bar by Parts & Labour, and music by DJ medicineman June 18 and DJ Phil V June 19.

Hosted by Toronto-based chef, two-time TEDx speaker and activist for social justice and sustainable food systems, Joshna Maharaj brings together some of the citys top chefs and supporters of causes such as veganism and the local food movement. Chefs from Khao San Road, Valdez, Le Petit Djeuner, Hey Meatball, My Little Dumpling and more, bring a diverse range of flavours from Latino street food to Thai fried chicken, locally sourced meatball sandwiches and vegan treats. Access is free and open to the public, with each food dish priced at $6.
