Promise Cherry Beach

Promise Cherry Beach is Back!

Holiday Monday July 3rd

Canada Day Long Weekend

So excited to announce the return of fun at our beloved Cherry Beach. And in a new and very improved format.

Theres two Cherry Beach parties this summer. The first is on the holiday Monday of Canada Day long weekend. Historically this day is the best Cherry Beach of the summer, with all your favourite local djs and the weather just coming into peak sun and warmth.

Two big announcements...

Fully Licensed Beach Bar!

For the first time in Cherry Beach history, the event will be fully licensed. We can all finally legally enjoy a drink while hanging with friends, family and children and listening to our favourite music. A huge step forward for all of us.

11pm Finish Time!

The favourite Cherry Beach experience is the trees all lit up after sunset. Careful negotiations with the City have brought finish time back to 11pm, and so back to having the most beautiful dancefloor in the world.

Our relationship with the City has grown since last summer, and these changes have been granted as a pilot test for a long term home at Cherry Beach Park. Thanks for all of your patience, faith and support towards a new future. And thanks to the City for embracing this event which has become the internationally acclaimed jewel of the Torontos music underground.

An afternoon of social sun and fun, a shared sunset, into an evening rich and dazzling in pretty lights and colour.


To follow, you trust that itll be good. House, techno and beach party groove. Out of 1 to 10, the music goes to 11.
