Taste of the Danforth is a yearly food and culture festival held in Toronto, in the Greektown area along Danforth Avenue

Danforth Greektown

The strip of Danforth Avenue traditionally known as Greektown has evolved into a diverse community hub of multicultural cuisine, shops and independent grocers. It is still home to one of the largest Greek communities in North America; street signs are in English as well as modern Greek, and several scenes from My Big Fat Greek Wedding were filmed here.

Don’t miss:

  • A concert at The Danforth Music Hall, a former cinema that’s now one of the city’s most popular live venues 
  • Your pick of Greek food along Danforth Avenue. Mezes is a favourite, but if you can’t decide, book a guided food tour
  • Exploring the diverse food options: Rendez-Vous for Ethiopian, Mr. Pide for Turkish, Herby Restaurant for Persian and Beiteddine for Lebanese
  • Going vinyl hunting at Kops Records and Mike’s Music Store 
  • The Taste of the Danforth street festival, which happens each summer

BOUNDARIES: Danforth Avenue, between Don Valley Parkway and Luttrell Avenue. 

PUBLIC TRANSIT (TTC): Any subway station between the Broadview and Main Street stops.
