Ah! Summer is so close I can almost taste it. It’s hard to believe another school year has flown by so quickly but I can say for myself that I’m definitely ready for some sun, patio-lounging, and driving aimlessly with my friends under a clear night sky.
Being a foodie, I get excited when the summer months roll around because that’s when all the amazing food festivals pop up! If you’re in the market to tingle your taste buds after what feels like a milestone of a month, here are some delicious events happening in the next few months.
Brewer’s Plate Toronto
Beer and food are a match made in heaven. I remember the first time I ate at Bier Markt, which was probably the most memorable meal at a restaurant I’ve ever had. Brewer’s Plate is a food festival where master chefs and brewers come together to celebrate sustainable food and well-crafted beer. All proceeds go to various charities that support local, sustainable food and farming in Ontario.
Street Food Block Party
Are any of you Eat St. fans? Well one of Toronto’s streets are going to turn into one for one day in May with the best of the best food trucks Toronto has to offer. You can expect unconventional vendors and inspired creations from all around the globe. This event is going to be nuts—you better round up your troops and get ready to take on the crowds! http://www.blogto.com/eat_drink/2012/02/street_food_block_party_coming_to_toronto_this_spring/
Taste of the Danforth
This is the food festival I anticipate the most for the summer! I love Greek cuisine and the Taste of the Danforth is my heaven calling. One long section of Danforth Ave. is shut down for various Greek vendors offering everything scrumptious that defines the culture. Like the events above, it’s a great opportunity for you and some friends to try a lot of different foods at low prices and exploring the Danforth strip if you’ve never been there before.
What events are you most looking forward to this summer? Leave it in the comments!
