East York Days – August 28, 2019
August 28, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Wednesday, August 28, 2019 | 6-9pm
East York Civic Centre | 850 Coxwell Avenue
The first East York Days is on Wednesday, August 7, 2019
Presented by East End Arts in collaboration with Councillor Paula Fletcher (Ward 14) and the City of Toronto’s City Hall Live program, East York Days is a celebration of community featuring live music by local musicians, an artisan marketplace, and a variety of some of Toronto’s favourite food trucks. This event is free, so bring the family, a blanket or lawn chairs and enjoy local sounds and tastes!
Proceeds support East End Arts’ arts programs for youth in our community. Attendees are also encouraged to please bring non-perishable items for donation to the Bethany Food Bank.
East York Day’s mission is to bring community residents, business owners and the arts together to celebrate local artists, food, music and what makes East York so special! This is East End Arts’ 2nd year hosting this event, after a successful pilot in 2018 with Councillor Mary Fragedakis. We welcome all to join in by applying to be an artisan vendor, signing up to volunteer (it takes a village to make events like this happen!) or simply marking Wednesday August 7th and 28th (6 to 9 pm) in your calendars, so you don’t miss out on the fun!
