Mayor of Toronto, Tory cancels all major Festivals & Events till August 31st. What does this mean for Brantford? No more trips to downtown Toronto. The city of Brantford may follow.
“It is with deep regret that we are forced to extend the cancellation of large festivals to continue to stop the spread of COVID-19 and save lives. Special events and festivals are critical to the livability, vitality and economic success of Toronto, and that is why we are launching the Cultural Festivals Recovery Program to ensure that when we defeat COVID-19, these festivals can return safely and contribute to Toronto’s economic recovery,” Mayor John Tory said in a statement.
The cancellation of events of more than 250 people includes Salsa on St. Clair, Toronto Outdoor Art Fair, Honda Indy, Toronto Triathlon Festival, Beaches International Jazz Festival, and Big on Bloor, among others.
Canceled events of more than 25,000 people include Jerkfest, Taste of the Danforth, Taste of Little Italy, Taste of Manila, and Toronto Chinatown Festival.
We will keep up to date with Brantford events and festivals.
