Media Advisory - Celebrate Toronto Street Festival opening ceremonies
Don’t miss the most spectacular show of the summer as the Celebrate Toronto Street Festival launches at Yonge-Dundas Square.

Date: Friday, July 7
Time: 8 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Location: Yonge-Dundas Square (southeast corner of Yonge and Dundas Streets)

The schedule:

8 p.m.
Pre-show wandering performances including “Accoules Sax” (tight funky beats and jumpy horn lines from this Marseilles-based mini-marching band); Dutch theatre group Close-Act’s new mobile act “Saurus” (oversized creatures that look like prehistoric animals generating atypical and flowing sounds) and from France’s Compagnie Colbok “Niki” (inspired by the sculptor Niki de Saint Phalle, the three big Mamas are curious, a little coquettish, sometimes provoking and sometimes lofty).

8:30 p.m.
Hamilton-based “modern rock troubadour” Tomi Swick (gifted singer/songwriter’s current single “A Night Like This” reached #3 on the Canadian charts)

9 p.m.
Vancouver-based R&B singer Rosette (Favourite Pop Artist at the 2006 Indie Music Awards)

9:15 p.m.

9:40 p.m.
“Tricycle,” the world premiere of this large-scale roaming spectacle production from Toronto’s Circus Orange. Tricycle is a nomadic journey through public space by an ensemble of 16 Toronto-based performers.

10:20 p.m.
Spectacular special effects finale (time is approximate).
