The 2019 DesignTO Festival comes to Yonge + St. Clair

DesignTO, formerly the Toronto Design Offsite Festival, is Canada’s largest cultural celebration of design with over 100 free exhibitions and events forming Toronto’s design week, January 18-27, 2019. Going into its 9th year, DesignTO transforms Toronto into a hub for creativity, taking design and art out of the studio and into the urban sphere, bringing people together to celebrate contemporary culture.

The Yonge + St. Clair BIA is a proud sponsor of the Festival, and will play host to 12 installations and two events across the neighbourhood. Installations include brand new work by Studio F Minus, designers of the Tunnel of Glam.
