After a two year hiatus, Toronto’s ultimate summer festival returned with a new name: Do West Fest (formerly Dundas West Fest).
Presented by Little Portugal Toronto BIA and produced by Uma Nota Culture, this year we will explored new approaches to offering a summer celebration like no other, including expanding from our two day format, to a three day festival: spanning Friday June 3, Saturday June 4, and Sunday June 5. 2022’s Festival took place along Dundas Street West from Ossington to Lansdowne and featured: live music from local and international artists on four outdoor stages, extended patios for our local bars and restaurants, food, artisans and craft vendors, children’s interactive area, and vibrant BIA member programming.
This was the first major street festival in Toronto, since the start of the pandemic. Over half a million people attended- the mood of the event was an overjoyed community spirit.
Thanks to the 2022 partner for helping to make the festival happen:
The City of Toronto
LiUNA Local 183
Uncle Terry’s World-Famous Bargain Blowout
Vieira and Associates
2023 will be year ten of the community street festival. Stay tuned here and to the Do West Fest website for date announcement and ways to be involved.
