Call for Sponsors, Vendors, Entertainers – Spring Festival 2017!

The PAVBIA is excited to share that planning has kicked off for the 5th Annual Spring into Parkdale Sidewalk Festival & Market on May 13th with some amazing additions in the works for 2017. Last years side road closures at Cowan Avenue & Callender Street proved to be a hit and the BIA hopes to build on the Market atmosphere by adding a 10,000 sqft outdoor Food Market to compliment the already bustling activities and over 150+ attractions along Queen Street West from Dufferin to Roncesvalles. The 10,000 sqft Market space will allow us to highlight the eclectic food (and drink) experience available in our community from around the world. If you would like to explore ways to participate as a Sponsor, Food Vendor, Entertainer etc. within the Market & Festival, please contact us below.
