The heart of the festival is located at Nathan Philips Square, but events also take place around the city.

Taste of the Danforth Toronto boasts more culturally diverse and award-winning restaurants than one can count, so it's no wonder that the city is host to numerous food and culinary festivals, including the Greek Town's Taste of the Danforth Festival.
