Now in its eleventh year, BIG on Bloor Festival is happening July 21-28 with a pedestrian takeover of Bloor Street West, Dufferin to Lansdowne, from noon until midnight. At this family-friendly event, you can roam the streets and peruse all the neighbourhood vendors and small businesses, plus a ton of local art!
As a new addition this year, Artsite x Bloordale will deliver a series of large-scale projects as unique site-specific works curated by Festival Director Darren Leu.
Other highlights to check out: installations by Camille Jodoin-Eng, Ness Lee Illustrations, Janine Miedzik and Lido Pimienta; murals by Brent Hardisty (Niiwin Binesi) and Lauren Pirie; a dancehall-inflected R&B performance by Bonjay; plus interactive and participatory art projects, moveable sculptures, art-making, Flamenco, poetry and prose, magic and more!
There is lots to see and do at the BIG on Bloor Festival, running July 21 to July 28. This event is FREE and open to everyone.
