Taste of Danforth

Friday, August 9, Saturday, August 10 & Sunday, August 11
Danforth Ave, between Broadview and Jones

1.3 million annual visitors can’t be wrong! When you’ve got a hankering for the best Toronto’s Greektown has to offer, Taste of the Danforth remains unparalleled! As Canada’s largest street festival (!), the TOD celebrates Greek culture, entertainment, and oh yes, food!

We’re talking mouthwatering souvlaki, spanakopita, loukoumades, gyros, salads, and saganaki (flaming cheese!), just to name a few delectable dishes. All reasonably priced, I am most happy to report. The young’ns can enjoy face-painting and video games, while adults with a hearty summer thirst can partake in quality beer and wine. Opa!

In addition to soaking in the festivities, I shall be on hand to host my very own live talk show, titled Chill with Will. Expect it to be “epic,” as the youngsters a good century my junior would say. We’re talking a slick 19th-century talk show set, plus comedy, music, special CUPE 79 guests, and a healthy dose of rabble-rousing mayhem! Who says Craig Ferguson has the market cornered on high-energy Scotsman-hosted talk shows? Certainly not I!

Oh, and stick around to chat with yours truly: Toronto’s first mayor, William Lyon Mackenzie. I plan to mingle, pose for photographs, and engage in snappy banter, Rest assured, I shall be exactly as charming and whimsical as you’d imagine – if not more so!
