On Saturday, June 1, you’ll be able to enjoy a range of musical performances on the Main Stage at Broadview, along with cold brews in the Eastbound Beer Garden.

And in addition to brews, over 50 local eateries and shops along Queen East will be offering food specials, sidewalk sales, and live entertainment.

Plus, you’ll be able to participate in a trivia challenge by Historica Canada, Drag Queen Storytime at Queen and Saulter Library, and sit atop the GoT throne from Ralph Thornton Community Centre.

That is, if you’re not still hurting after that finale.

The event is free to attend, and whatever you choose to eat, drink and participate in, the streets will be bustling! You can check out the full schedule of programming here.

Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy some local delights in the sun.
