These neighbourhoods in Toronto could become music and entertainment hubs
The city of Toronto is at its best when it's lively, fun, and people seem ready to be dancing in the streets. Thanks to new developments at City Hall, dancing in the streets could soon become a reality for several neighbourhoods across the city.
The identified areas include regions such as The Queensway from Mimico Creek to Kipling Ave in Etobicoke all the way to Scarborough Town Centre and many places in between.
Dupont, St. Clair West, and the Upper Beaches are just some of the other areas in Toronto that have also been identified as "Emerging Entertainment Areas" outside of the downtown core.
A report has been published detailing the findings and the city's desire to use the pandemic as an opportunity to re-imagine what Toronto's performing arts and music scene might be and to proactively support the growth of cultural activity outside the downtown core.
"The Emerging Entertainment Areas Outside of the Downtown Core report seeks to explore possibilities for night time animation across the city in ways that are safe and appropriate for the local neighbourhoods," Marguerite Pigott, Film Commissioner and Director of Entertainment Industries, City of Toronto told blogTO.
The complete list of neighbourhoods identified as live music and entertainment hubs is as follows:
