As we head into the end of 2014 we are proud to announce the third part to our Parkdale Gallery Crawl series. Beginning in September we toured a different section of Queen Street for a fun filled evening, discovering some of the best stores, galleries and restaurants in the area. Celebrating the great art, design and food in the neighbourhood, we have also been able to meet the business owners, artists, chefs and people that make the area so unique. Pictures can be seen here and here and itineraries for the first and second walk can be found here and here.

This month’s walk will focus on the middle section (along Queen from Lansdowne to Sorauren), offering another evening of exciting discoveries. Please join us as we explore some of the stores, galleries, bars and restaurants along Queen Street West that make Parkdale so great. Happening Thursday November 27, from 6-8:00 pm, this will be our final walk of 2014. For a full itinerary and to RSVP click here – Max. 50 participants

Walks are led by renowned art journalist and Art InSite founder Betty Ann Jordan

The Lab Cab Festival entertains Parkdale for a second year!

This past weekend the Parkdale Village BIA sponsored the second Lab Cab Festival & Sidewalk Sale in Parkdale Village!  Patrons enjoyed over 100 multi-arts performers at 80+ venues and it was a wonderful opportunity for visitors to meet business owners, shop locally and participate in free activities! A huge thanks to all our volunteers, the festival organizers, the artists and shop owners who took part.
