We love giant street takeovers where pedestrians roam peacefully, and BIG on Bloor is one of our favourite neighbourhood festivals. This two-day, car-free summer street celebration will bring together over 150 vendors as well as small businesses from the blocks of Bloordale (Bloor Street West from Dufferin to Landsdowne) this weekend, July 23rd and July 24th.

There is lots to see and do from the Playfair area, boasting bouncy castles and circus acts, to Jouez: a totally free street arts program where you can participate in hands-on art activities and interact with art installations.

Beyond the most eclectic assortment of local vendors and living arts, restaurants and bars will also spill onto the streets for lively revelry late into the night.

For more details, visit the BIG on Bloor site and check out our photos from past years.

See ya on the street.
