Riverside Eats & Beats ‘Pops-Up’ on Saulter June 4th!

Sunday on Saulter Street offers a unique blend of music, history and local food and veggies on June 4th. The Leslieville Farmers’ Market and MomenTO Mobile Museum Pop-ups are just some of the highlights!

Riverside’s Annual Eats & Beats Streetfest is back – this year on Saturday, June 3rd and Sunday, June 4th alongside the Riverdale ArtWalk. Join us as the festival helps ‘Celebrate 150’ and Indigenous roots, with festivities spanning Riverside’s 10 vibrant blocks along Queen Street East from the DVP to Empire Avenue.


During your time at the Eats and Beats Streetfest on June 4th, make sure to stop by the Saulter Street closure, south of Queen St E. From 1-4pm, get a taste of the Leslieville Farmers’ Market as it ‘pops-up’ in Riverside! Shop for your fresh, local prepared food and veggies from local farmers and producers. Plus, enjoy live music by local artists and residents Dustin & Caleb!

Also on Saulter will be the MomenTO pop-up museum which, in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, explores the stories of remarkable people, places and events in the history of Toronto and Canada.  MomenTO highlights people, places and events from 1867 to 2017 that are significant to the history of Canada and Toronto. Come by at 3pm for a special presentation of Riverside history with special guests from MomenTO, Riverside BIA Chair Mitch Korman, Barry Slater (our local Riverside history aficionado from the Royal Canadian Curling Club,) and Ward 30 Councillor Paula Fletcher.
