#122 Celebrate The Queensway Festival

Celebrate the Queensway Festival

There is no doubt that The Queensway is slowly turning into a premium entertainment, dining, and shopping destination in Etobicoke. The area between Kipling Avenue and Royal York has been sprouting up some great stores and restaurants and several condo developments are also popping out of the ground. The emergence of the Queensway BIA and its First Annual Celebrate the Queensway Festival is a sign that more great changes are on the horizon.

Please note that the Celebrate the Queensway Festival is not being held in 2014. Hopefully it will return in 2015! Read on for details for last year’s festival and consider contacting the Queensway BIA to have this event return next year!

Celebrate the Queensway Festival is being held Saturday June 8 2013 at Queensway Park (North-West corner of The Queensway and Avon Park Drive). Put on by the newly formed Queensway Business Area association and Councillor Peter Milczyn, it will be a fun-filled event for Queensway residents and their families. There will be plenty of activities for the younger set such as face painting, games, cotton candy, carnival rides, and a family movie in the park! There will also be a Cool Beer Brewery beer tent, DJ, and live music.

  1. As someone who grew up in the area and played a lot of baseball at Queensway Park I commend you on “celebrate” Queensway”. Just one question. Why a picture of “Welcome Kingsway” ? Two different worlds completely.

    • Hey Dave,
      That is a very good question! Rather than fiddle around and come up with an excuse for how we can mistake a picture from the Kingsway with The Queensway we’ll just replace it with a pic from last year’s Celebrate the Queensway event! This year’s event looks like it’ll be even bigger!
