One of my all time favourite summer festivities in Toronto would have to be the Beaches Jazz Fest. I have been attending the festival for the past few years but tonight it could have not been any more perfect. It was great summer weather, awesome crowd, good food and most importantly the music. It’s hard to not enjoy the festival as a long stretch of Queen Street East is closed off for the public with bands playing music on the street and many of the local merchants out in full force selling local goods.
The great thing about the festival is that not only does it celebrate music but it also gives the opportunity for attendees to experience a different part of the city. I know that when a lot of people think of Toronto, it usually doesn’t go beyond the downtown core as that is where a lot of the tourist attractions are but I can definitely assure you that the city has a lot more to offer.
