Canada’s foremost curb to curb celebration returns to Yonge Street
  
Toronto Special Events - Scheduled for July 8 - 10, 2005, the 7th annual
Celebrate Toronto Street Festival will once again transform the world's longest
street into a curb to curb celebration of tastes, talent and all that is
Toronto. Along with fantastic free entertainment, the Celebrate Toronto Street
Festival also presents Toronto’s 3rd annual Summerlicious restaurant promotion
offering exceptional prix fixe menu offers at 120 of Toronto’s top restaurants
from July 8 - 24, 2005.

At the peak of the city’s robust festival and event season, the Celebrate
Toronto Street Festival provides a unique artistic experience for residents and
visitors alike. For the 2005 festival, Yonge Street, where it intersects with
Dundas Street, St. Clair Avenue, Eglinton Avenue and Lawrence Avenue, will be
converted into a stage for free entertainment that covers the artistic
spectrum. Each festival site provides a combination of musical entertainment,
street theatre, circus arts, and so much more.

Since its inception in 1998, the Celebrate Toronto Street Festival has been
awarded six Festivals & Events Ontario Awards, three Canadian Event Industry
Awards and two Ontario Economic Development Awards.

Admission to the Celebrate Toronto Street Festival is FREE and getting there
couldn’t be easier. All four festival sites are accessible via the Toronto
Transit Commission (TTC). Festival subway stops on the Yonge line are Dundas,
St. Clair, Eglinton and Lawrence stations.

More information on the entertainment line-up at the Celebrate Toronto Street
Festival will be released in the coming weeks. Summerlicious information
including the list of participating restaurants and Summerlicious menus will be
available on-line late May. For more information on these and other Toronto
Special Events, the public can call Access Toronto at 416-338-0338 or visit www.toronto.ca/special_events.
