GTA Festivals That Are Coming Back This Summer

Are you ready to get out this summer and participate in all festivals and events that are back? After two years of following protocols and staying inside, it is time to join your community in the summer fun.

There is no shortage of things to do, but here are some great choices in the GTA and near our upcoming communities

Taste of Asia June 24th – 26th

Celebrating the collaboration of the Hakka World Conference and Asialicious, Markham is bringing you a taste of Asian culture, including traditional foods and performances! Located at Kennedy Road and Steeles Avenue, enjoy 3 days of fun while learning about the community atmosphere.

Salsa on St. Clair July 9th – 10th

Grab your dancing shoes and head over to Toronto’s annual TD Salsa on St. Clair. Located at Hillcrest Village and St. Clair Avenue West, come join the community at Canada’s hottest salsa festival, where you can experience dancing in the streets and cultural cuisine. It’s a fiesta that you do not want to miss!

There will be plenty of talented entertainment acts, including Bachata Swing Toronto, Viva Mexico Mariachi and more.

Wine Fest TO July 8th – 9th

Are you one for fine wines? Toronto is hosting an elegant 2-day event to celebrate its distinctive wine culture with some of the most magnificent vendors in the area. And of course, we cannot forget about the tasty food pairings that will complement the wine aromas.

The event will be taking place at RendezViews and the tickets open up an “All You Can Taste” opportunity to venture around and sip your fruity favourites.

Toronto Festival of Beer July 22nd – 24th

Cheers to pour decisions at this year’s Toronto Festival of Beer. At Exhibition Place, the city is celebrating in the best way possible: food, alcohol, and entertainment! There will be over 100 brewers from around the world!

It is going to be an active day in the sun while drinking, so ensure you dress for the weather and stay hydrated. The event offers FREE water that you can fill up throughout the event grounds using your beer mug (once emptied, of course).

We are excited that many of these annual events are returning, as it is a time to celebrate culture and community.

At Sunny Communities, we strive to make every day in your new home a sunny day and want your environment to reflect that as well. For details on our upcoming communities, register at If you would like to see construction updates on Markham GOLD, click here.
