There is never a dull moment at Yonge-Dundas Square. And come summer there’s no better place to celebrate the city – and the weather- than in Toronto’s unofficial grand plaza.
Opened in 2002 and evolving ever since, the Yonge-Dundas Square has become the place for Torontonians to come together.
Whether we’re marking civic celebrations, Olympic wins, new album releases from the city’s best indie-bands, or exhibitions of world class art, the Square brings us together as individuals, but celebrates our sense of community.
Vibrant and dynamic year-round, the Square truly comes to life in the summer months.
While we are still patiently awaiting the announcement of this summer’s event schedule, past years have seen the Square celebrate music, movies, cuisine and comedy.
It plays host annually to Indie Fridays, a series of outdoor music concerts from July to September, with additional concerts available throughout the summer. Check out www.ydsquare.ca/indie-fridays.html for updates on the weekly free concerts, scheduled for this summer.
Also, back by popular demand is the North By Northeast (NXNE) Festival. NXNE is an annual music and arts festival celebrating its 24th year – returning to Yonge Street where fans believe it belongs. This year’s Festival also features the addition of some comedy shows, with details about the hits and ha’s to be found at www.nxne.com
But maybe you’re more into sights than sounds? So why not take in a flick or two- al fresco- with one of the film screenings showing in the square.
Beyond movies and music, the Square plays host through the summer to vendors, exhibitions and festivals that ensure the neighbourhood is always alive and entertaining.
