This celebration of Greek food and culture, which began in 1994, is comprised of a multitude of exhibitors featuring contests, prizes, and even free samples, not to mention a seemingly endless number of greek food booths. Certain Greek staples that you are sure to find in abundance include souvlaki skewers, pitas filled with all sorts of sumptuous Greek fare, and, of course, gyros. But the Taste of the Danforth isn’t just about food, as entertainment options also abound, including three outdoor stages (one of which focuses exclusively on Greek culture), music, dancing, activities, and a sports zone. If the crowds get to be too much, or you’re just too weighted down from all the food, relax on a licensed patio where you can just sit back and watch a sea of people roll by.
Tried, tested, and true “Taste” veterans would probably agree that the best tip for attending the festival is to arrive hungry and with hands unencumbered so you can eat and walk at the same time.
