The countdown has started – only 3.5 weeks to go till our May 7th Spring into Parkdale Sidewalk Festival – this year we promise to be bigger & more colorful with added family activities & exciting promotions taking place along Queen Street West. To kick things off we’ll be announcing activities, performers and deals on a weekly basis. We hope you’ll be enticed to re-explore, re-discover and support over 100 participating community organizations, artists, musicians & shops.
