Riverside’s Annual Eats & Beats Streetfest is back – this year on Saturday June 1st alongside the annual Riverdale Artwalk. Taste the Eats and feel the Beats in Toronto’s Riverside neighbourhood! Riverside’s Annual Streetfest spans 10 vibrant blocks along Queen Street East between the Don Valley Parkway to just past De Grassi Street.
While you’re at Eats & Beats Streetfest, head over to the easterly end of the neighbourhood to Jimmie Simpson Park and the Jimmie Simpson Rec Centre for the Riverdale ArtWalk. Hosted by the Artists’ Network, the Riverdale ArtWalk is a FREE two-day (June 1 & 2), public fine art exhibition showcasing established and emerging artists in Jimmie Simpson Park and the Community Centre in Toronto’s flourishing Queen St. East arts district. The first outdoor art show of Toronto’s season, the Riverdale ArtWalk is consistently ranked one of the top outdoor shows in the GTA. It is a great place to connect with artists and buy that perfect piece for your home!
The festival hosts over 170 participating artists and the inclusion of local community groups and entertainment. Now in its 20th year in the Riverdale/Leslieville area of Toronto, the festival has grown to reach an audience of over 25,000 art enthusiasts and supporters. Through new partnership opportunities with the local BIA, the Riverdale Artwalk expects to continue to grow.
