Taste of Toronto

Known as the ‘birthplace of urban Toronto’, Fort York will play host to the second annual Taste of Toronto.

Taste of Toronto is back for its second year July 2nd – 5th, 2015.

Fort York will be transformed into a foodie wonderland for four days of summer eating, drinking and entertainment. The city’s latest, greatest and hottest restaurants will be dishing up their finest in an alfresco gourmet feast. Top that off with over 70 producers of the best food, beverages and premium brands providing a bountiful food market, and you have the best culinary festival of the year!

Operating much like a restaurant with lunch and dinner services, Taste of Toronto is comprised of six half-day sessions that last between 4- 5 hours which gives our guests the time to enjoy their pick of restaurant dishes, browse the artisan stalls and enjoy some of the many attractions including the Taste Theatre, Metro Master Classes, the Tasting Room, a Delta Air Lines VIP Lounge and a Music Stage.

 How does it all work?

Taste of Toronto operates much like a restaurant with lunch and dinner services. There are 6 sessions running over the 4 days, each lasting between 4 – 5 hours (session dependent) to give you time to enjoy your pick of close to 50 restaurant dishes, browse the artisan stalls and enjoy the many features. Taste of Toronto is like a city built in a park for four days with its own currency, Crowns. The whole park operates on the Crown system and all restaurant dishes and anything you wish to purchase from the artisan stalls can be bought with your Crown card. You can sip and sample from many of the exhibitors at no charge, as well as participate in many of the features like the Metro Master Classes but it’s recommended to load your Crown card with $30 to get you started.
