Vendors will be taking over the wide sidewalks of this hidden gem of a neighbourhood located east of The Distillery District. The area is home to a new housing development that’s still growing.

“We have an exciting mix of 60+ top tier vendors — from Indigenous and BIPOC to Queer, to local Canary and east end talent,” reads the press release. “And we’ve got entertainment planned throughout the weekend (including family-friendly programming).”


Get ready to shop for apparel, fine art, paintings, prints, jewellery, housewares, bath and body products, and more.

Vendors will include Pre&Peri, a line of streetwear with Indigenous-designed motifs, Tora Studios, which sells original art pieces and dried florals, low-waste brand Freon Collective, as well as Roncy Packs, an LGBTQ-owned business selling upcycled fanny packs.
