It’s only January 2, but Toronto is already gearing up to celebrate the year’s longest day of sun: the summer solstice.

The Junction Summer Solstice is not only the largest event of its kind in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, it’s also a great chance for locals and visitors alike to explore everything the booming area of the city has to offer.

Taking place Saturday, June 20, from 11 am to 10 pm, the block party allows visitors to enjoy local restaurants and businesses as they set up on the street for a once-a-year opportunity.

With an anticipated attendance of over 15,000 patrons, the 2020 turnout is expected to be the festival’s largest yet! Visitors of all ages can look forward to six blocks of live music, art, great food, local shopping, activities.

The day-long event will mean a full road closure along Dundas Street West, east to Indian Grove and west to High Park Avenue, with “block parties” located outside the road closure.

This year, the event is embracing a theme of 60’s retro-inspired psychedelic pop-art street party. Read: peace, love, and flower power.

While the festival is still many months away, organizers are already accepting vendor applications.
