A huge outdoor festival is being held in the heart of Downtown Toronto this summer to celebrate an equally big anniversary for the city.

Celebrate Toronto is happening on Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11 at Nathan Phillips Square, and will showcase the city’s small businesses, artists, and musicians.

The free weekend party will feature tons of great shopping, live entertainment, and activities for all ages to enjoy. And Celebrate Toronto is pet friendly, too.

The whole family will love checking out the Imagination Zone provided by Imagine-it 3D. The large-scale interactive sculpture garden offers dozens of photo ops to explore so make sure your camera is ready to snap.

You’ll also want to keep your energy up so you can see and do everything that Celebrate Toronto has to offer. Good thing the festival features an outdoor food market with a diverse menu of cuisines, sweet treats, and more. There’s even a Steam Whistle Beer Garden that you can relax in while listening to live music.

And filling your brain with knowledge about the city may give you an advantage when you play Toronto Trivia. There are $2,500 in prizes to win during the festival, including a trip for two from VIARail.
