About Winterlicious and Summerlicious
The Winterlicious and Summerlicious programs are produced by the City of Toronto. The Licious programs began in 2003 as a way to boost Toronto's restaurant industry during typically slow periods of business. In the years since the programs' inception, participating restaurants have served 6.2 million meals during the promotion which have generated more than $275 million in economic activity for the local restaurant industry. The Licious programs were ranked in the top three all-time favourite festivals, fairs and events in Field Day's fourth annual Toronto entertainment survey.
