Taste of Lawrence Delights over 200,000!

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Taste of Lawrence 2015. We were thrilled to see over 200,000 people come out to Scarborough's largest street festival. It was a wonderful celebration of food, music, and culture and we can’t wait to get started on next year’s event!

This year we had our most successful food event to date. There were over 40 food vendors in attendance at the festival this year with cuisine from the many cultures in the GTA. We still continue to receive compliments on the delicious options for food that were available at the festival. I believe we all had our fill during the festival weekend ;)

On Saturday night it was our honour to present Canadian reggae legends, Messenjah. The iconic reggae band lit up Lawrence Avenue with their amazing musical talent and gave us an unforgettable show!

We were extraordinarily pleased with our new midway provider, World's Finest Shows. Their professionalism and quality is something that we look forward to for many years to come.

We would like to send a huge thank you to everyone who had a helping hand in bringing this project to life: Councillor Michael Thompson and his office, our volunteers, all of our sponsors, our title sponsor at TD Bank Group, the members of the Wexford Heights BIA, the event planners at Sphere Entertainment, our suppliers, our vendors, and all the musicians and artists who brought our stages to life. Last but not least we would like to thank everyone who came out to the event to experience Lawrence Avenue. We appreciate your presence and continued support.

See you at Taste of Lawrence 2016!
