There is so much to do in Toronto this Civic Holiday Weekend and it looks so much fun

This Civic Holiday weekend will see several all-encompassing events take over Toronto, offering visitors and residents the chance to enjoy plenty of late summer fun.

One of the events hosted by the city is the Afro Caribbean Farmers’ Market, which takes place this Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event will take place at two locations: Little Keele Street in Toronto’s York-Weston borough on July 30 and Little Jamaica, 1531 Eglinton Avenue West, on July 31.

“A festive, fun, food-centric space that celebrates Afro-Caribbean culture,” says the City of Toronto’s website.

Toronto Caribbean Carnival, a similar event, will also take place throughout the weekend in the Lakeshore West area of ​​the city.

The cultural celebration hosts parades and features beautiful costumes, dancing and, of course, authentic island cuisine.

Another unmissable event this weekend is the Veld Music Festival.

The three-day festival, featuring performances by some of the biggest names in dance and hip-hop music, kicks off on Friday and is a must for anyone into electronic music.

If you want to participate in something meaningful, you can head to Fort York Historic Site, which hosts the annual Emancipation Day celebration at noon on August 1.

“The event commemorates the 188th anniversary of the Slavery Abolition Act,” the city added.

If you plan to drive into town to attend one of these events, consider taking the train or bus to avoid traffic restrictions.

A long list of road closures is in place over the weekend to accommodate the upcoming celebrations.
