This year’s Riverside Window Wonderland is a special collaboration – ‘meet’ the artists who designed and installed this year’s incredible 20 plus holiday windows along Toronto’s Queen Street East!
As part of our ‘Riverside 40 Years, 40 Stories’ series, we’re sharing the story of the bridge over the Don at Queen Street East. While it was once a less remarkable but always important passage into Toronto’s east, it has become an iconic landmark of the city under the Riverside BIA’s watch. Read on for its story…
On September 1, 2020, the Riverside BIA got together with local BIPOC artists, the STEPS Initiative, RBC, and community members to launch the ‘Humans of Riverside’ story telling series a part of the iheART Mainstreet Art Challenge. Learn more and check out the stories and the art!

Girls Mural Camp (GMC) is an opportunity for youth who identify as girls, young women, female or non-binary to explore the history and practice of street art, and to co-create a large street mural together. Riverside BIA was proud to support this year’s program – learn more!
In 2019, the Riverside BIA proudly welcomed the ‘Alquimia’ mural as a vibrant addition to the neighbourhood’s public art pieces. Painted by Jacquie Comrie, the mural brings life to the walls of Riverside.
