Corso Italia Festival

The 15th annual Corso Italia Festival is one that you can’t miss. This free street festival takes place in Toronto’s Little Italy. Over 30 live bands will be performing along St.Clair West, playing everything from salsa to classical tunes. Past musicians have included: Claudio Santaluce, Carlo Coppola, Imbayakunas, Toronto All Star Big Band, Cobra Kings, Yiannis Kapoulas, Sambacana, Inner Soul, Puente del Diablo, Luis Rey Band and Havana Express.

Be prepared to shop, because local shops will have sidewalk sales all weekend long. Corso Italia’s local restaurants will offer a dazzling selection of tastes and flavours for you to buy and try.

The street will be lined for 10 blocks with Italian and Portuguese food stalls, buskers, and a huge midway with rides! Be sure to catch musical performances by Juno award winning artists including Tyler Shaw, JRDN and Neverest!

The Corso Italia Festival takes places on July 6-7 on St. Clair Avenue West between Westmount and Landsdowne
