Toronto Urban Roots Festival

20 rainy memories of Toronto's newest outdoor festival

As the weather hinted at big things to come, Lee's Palace co-owner Jeff Cohen kicked off something big of his own this weekend: the inaugural edition of the Toronto Urban Roots Festival, more succinctly known as TURF, held from Thursday through Sunday at the Fort York Garrison Commons. Fans got wet, shoes got muddy, but complaints were drowned (heh, heh) out by fans overjoyed to see the likes of Belle and Sebastian, Yo La Tengo, and She & Him. Oh, and there were baby bunnies!

Check out this slideshow for a visual recap of the waterlogged festival.
