The Danforth East Arts Fair Heralds The Advent of Autumn

The Danforth

Next week, on September 23rd, we welcome the first day of Autumn – personally, I couldn't be happier! As much as I love beach basking, trips to the cottage, weekend barbecues, and outdoor sports, there is something special and nostalgic about autumn. I relish hot coffee and tea instead of iced, the need for layers because the nights are getting cooler, the beautiful ever-changing leaves floating to the ground, the shorter days and longer nights, and all of the farmer's markets and community festivals autumn brings.

One such festival is happening in Toronto this weekend! The 7th Annual Danforth East Arts Fair is a free event which showcases the talents of a diverse range of local artisans in a gorgeous natural setting. The event runs from 10am-5pm Saturday and Sunday, rain or shine, in East Lynn Park, located on the south side of the Danforth between Coxwell and Woodbine. Snacks prepared by local restaurants and charities are available for sale in the park to satiate your hunger. Make it a family outing; there are children’s activities, arts and crafts including face painting and artist-led workshops. Plus there's live acoustic music throughout the day!
