Photos from Yesterday’s Dundas West Fest

dwfTens of thousands turned out yesterday for Toronto’s first Dundas West Fest, a street fair stretching from Roxton Road all the way to Lansdowne. The restaurants had tables out in the street, and vendors and onlookers alike were enjoying the great weather all day. Stages were set up along the whole stretch of the festival including in the Beer Store parking lot.

Here are a few pictures we collected from yesterday’s festivities but these were just a small snapshot of an enormous festival. We’re looking forward to this festival again next year. A huge thanks and congratulations has to go out to to the Dundas West BIA for putting together a fantastic day.

The Garrison had windows wide open and a big crowd gathered to enjoy the scene:

The garden centre on the south side of Dundas just east of Dovercourt was turned into an actual beer garden, hosted by Bambi’s (a popular late night basement bar on the corner of Dovercourt and Dundas if you haven’t seen it) and Beau’s Beer. DJs played the entire afternoon and into the evening.
