BRAND NEW EVENT ON THE QUEENSWAY CELEBRATES THE GREAT CANADIAN BUTTER TART WITH AN OUTDOOR FAMILY-FRIENDLY COMMUNITY FESTIVAL!
The Queensway Butter Tart Festival is a sweet one-day community festival celebrating the quintessentially Canadian Butter Tart with bakers competing for the title of Toronto’s Best Butter Tart, (with and without raisins!) an Out-of-the-box award for fun creations of the non-traditional variety, and The People’s Choice Award (yes, there will be sampling!!)
Fun activities, live music and shows are planned for the entire
day—including the President’s Choice SuperDogs, music from six incredible groups, including GFORCE – currently appearing on this season’s America’s Got Talent, THE DREAMBOATS, POLKY VILLAGE BAND, LITTLE PETER AND THE ELEGANTS, MATERIAL MEN, and SWEET DERRICK! The Kids Zone will feature an interactive creative play space, with crafts, colouring activities, free-play, and more!
Marketplace vendors will be set up all day, sharing eco-friendly items, clothing, gifts, and more! Local food trucks and food vendors will have lots of delicious food and drinks available.
