(Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – The Krinos Taste of Danforth will take place in Greek Town in Toronto, Canada from August 5, 2016 to August 7, 2016. This is a multicultural event but there will also be plenty of Greek events! Throughout the festival, performances will range from Brazilian samba music to flamenco dancing.
However, there will also be traditional Greek events on the schedule that hail from both modern and ancient Greece. These events include plate breaking, which actually originated in Ancient Greece, an archery event modeled after Artemis, the Greek goddess of the hunt, a Parthenon where you’ll be able to have your photo taken, a Valley of the Gods where there will be likenesses of the gods and goddesses, and Greek folk dancing lessons and demonstrations.
However, there are also other events that aren’t from the Greek culture. Even though the event is taking place in Greek Town, the city of Toronto is multicultural, so the event is organized to give guests a wide exposure between many of these cultures. The scheduled performances, such as the flamenco dance demonstration and belly dancing performance both reflect this.
The Taste of Danforth Festival is actually Canada’s largest street festival. Over the three days that the festival is going on, the organizers predict that there will be about 1.65 million people who will attend based on past numbers. This is the 23rd year of the festival. There are tons of free activities that are great for the whole family. There will also be plenty of opportunities to taste some delicious foods, such as the Greek gyros that are pictured here. The event is put on by a board of directors and committee of volunteers who are all devoted to make each better than the last. In order for it to run, they use a co-op advertising format when attracting sponsors.
