Taste of the Kingsway
Join us for the 18th Annual Taste of The Kingsway festival, September 11 - 13 in the Kingsway neighbourhood.
True to its roots, Taste of the Kingsway is going English! Robert Home Smith, founder and architect of the Kingsway, envisioned the area to be “a little bit of England far from England." Home Smith crafted a unique town with English features and a family feel that comes together each year to celebrate the Taste of the Kingsway.
