A Weekend Wandering The Danforth East Arts Fair

City Living, The Danforth

One of the best parts of being part of a cool community is being able to participate in events that entertain and inspire – both of which enrich life, no?

Parks are a vital part of urban living, and for those who haven’t already, should consider checking out East Lynn Park, also known as the beating heart of the Danforth East community. There is something for everyone, every season of the year-literally.



I’ve written about East Lynn Park in the past, because it is one of those great parks that has so much for so many – wide open green space (a hectare!), lovely picnic areas, playgrounds, wading pool and even an ice skating rink during the winter. What’s not to love?!

East Lynn Park also hosts a weekly farmers market that usually runs from early summer to mid fall. It’s a great spot to get in season, super delicious produce and other market items, all while supporting local purveyors.

In the summer months, grab a cold beer and take in some live music at The Danny Loves Music Series.



What is perhaps the jewel in East Lynn Park’s crown is the Danforth East Arts Fair, hosted by one of the most vibrant community associations in the city : DECA (Danforth East Community Association).

This free and fun event runs this coming weekend, September 14-15, rain or shine! DECA describes the fair as showcasing “the work of an eclectic mix of local artists in a beautiful outdoor setting.” It’s a fine way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, noshing on fare from local restaurateurs, all while wandering and viewing all that these local artists have to offer. There is even live music to enjoy while you stroll!

Gifts, artwork and treasures are for sale to suit a wide range of budgets. Artwork is displayed in a number of mediums, in traditional and contemporary styles. Additionally, expect to see pottery, glass, woodworking, treats, bath and body goods and more. What’s for sure is that you’ll find all kinds of distinct, unique treasures, all while engaging with interesting people. It is a testament to this dynamic community and how proactive it is in procuring and nurturing local artistic talents, providing them with such a great showcase venue every year.

This is a great event for the whole family, with kids crafts and activities happening all day long onsite.



How cool would it be if this was your local park, and you could wander over to the Danforth East Arts Fair (or to take advantage of all the other wonderful things that East Lynn Park has to offer) whenever you wanted?
