Where Were You When The Lights Went Out?

This Sunday August 14 marks the 13th(!) anniversary of the big blackout of 2003. Where were you when the lights went out? Sometimes, without power to keep life-as-usual moving, we can actually find a great connection with each other! Celebrate this momentous occasion with a picnic, communal bike ride, foot parade and after party!

Bring blankets and goodies to share and meet for a picnic at Jimmy Simpson park (870 Queen St. E) from 6:00 to 8:30 PM. There will be samba, musical and dance workshops! Get ready for surprises on a bike ride at 8:00 PM or join the foot parade at 8:30 PM. And remember to bring supplies for the magical after party at 10:00 PM at a secret location!

Look forward to performances by Samba Elegua, Maracatu Mar Aberto, Blokoloko, Balfolk Toronto, Candy Apple Jazz Band, Freeman Dre & Marlon E.A. Chaplin, Rambunctious, Baque de bamba, Stilt Walkers, New Model Circus Army and more surprise guests.

It’s going to be a big one, don’t be late. Event is free. Get more info here.
