Now one of the largest Latino-themed cultural celebrations in Canada, the TD Salsa in Toronto spans over a three week period (June 30th – July 17th 2016) and features mucho music, dance, food and family fun.
What started as a local two-day event (Salsa on St. Clair Street Festival) in 2005, has grown into a nationally recognized celebration that has attracted hundreds of thousands of salsa lovers from near and far to the streets of mid-town Toronto.
The jam-packed calendar of cultural events throughout the city includes a series of Latin dance and art exhibitions, a salsa cruise, an opening night concert featuring Gente de Zona and dance parties culminating in the 12th Annual Salsa on St. Clair Street Festival (July 9th and 10th 2016).
“Salsa on St. Clair” is an annual FREE celebration that transforms a stretch of St. Clair Avenue West (from Winona Dr. to Christie St.) into a showcase of Latin life in Canada. Dance in the streets and take in all the Latino beats alongside some of the best local and international entertainers. Take a stroll through the Latin pavilion, get a taste of the authentic Latin American flavours, and enjoy a jam-packed lineup of family fun and children’s activities.
The TD Salsa in Toronto Festival and Salsa on St. Clair Street Festival are produced by the Canadian Salsa Festivals Project, a federally incorporated Not-for-profit organization.
