Taste of Little Italy, Toronto, ON

The Taste of Little Italy is happening this weekend and I walked there this afternoon to check it out.  I was there before it got too crowded.

From June 16th to 18th, join us for our biggest festival of the year, the Taste of Little Italy. A festival that celebrates College Street’s rich Italian history as well as the eclectic international community of today. Enjoy live music by performers from around the world, check out artisan vendors, savour a drink on one of the many patios and indulge in the food. With so many choices, from restaurants and street kiosks, to the myriad of tastings, you won’t leave hungry. Come to eat slowly, sip slowly and go slowly, while enjoying the unique neighbourhood that is Little Italy!

College Street is closed from Shaw Street to Bathurst Street for the festival.

There is something for everyone ... food, games, patios, psychics, music, vendors, face painting and lots more!  I started at the Shaw Street entrance and walked to Bathurst Street and then back to Shaw Street.

We had adopted Crumpet from the Annex Cat Rescue six years ago
Scotiabank was giving our cotton candy
Across the street, CIBC was giving out popcorn

These strawberries were picked this morning in the Niagara region
and were delicious!  I bought two quarts ($6/quart).
