Junction art meets street party

On September 6 and 7 over hundreds of events scheduled to the Junction art meets street party which takes place along one kilometre of Dundas Street West between Keele Street and Quebec Avenue.

Grab a festival guide, take a camera, wear good walking shoes and please join us!
"As with any birthday milestones, 16, 21, 50 or 75, what many people do is go all out and throw a big party; do something out of the ordinary; invite huge amounts of people; have a feast and mark the occasion with an event that they won't soon forget. Well, that's what we're doing at the Junction Arts Festival for the Junction's 100th birthday. We're putting on a huge art meets street party to celebrate the Junction's proud independent and artistic heritage, and we're inviting everyone to join us; the doors are open and the party goes until they shut us down."
Michael Menegon, Festival Executive Director
