Wrap Up: Fall Art Festival
The Yonge + St. Clair Fall Art Festival was the first local, outdoor art exhibition and sidewalk showcase event, which saw local storefronts, 6 new art installations, and sidewalk performers bring new life to shared public spaces all across the intersection at Yonge + St. Clair. 40 local businesses, retailers, eateries and community causes banded together to bring a newfound sense of community to the area, reflecting the forward-thinking aspirations of this emerging neighbourhood.
Members of the public were invited to attend this fall time gathering for free, to explore the emerging neighbourhood and enjoy what Yonge + St. Clair has to offer.
As well, local elected officials including MP Carolyn Bennett, Councillor Josh Matlow, and MPP Jill Andrews joined for the festivities, representing the public interests of the neighbourhood’s development and supporting the always evolving cultural dialogue in Toronto.
Sponsorships from local businesses included significant contributions by Slate Asset Management, Wittington Properties, QuadReal, Desjardins, Delisle Court as well as direct support by TABIA and Green P Parking.
