A Huge Block Party Is Popping Up Under The Gardiner

A Huge Block Party Is Popping Up Under The Gardiner

One of the cities coolest and newest public spaces will be home to an epic block party at the end of the season.  The Bentway has become one of Toronto’s most unique public spaces and has been home to an ice rink, art exhibitions, skateboarding and a beer garden.

To cap off the season, the Bentway will be transformed into a massive party space for an end-of-summer block party on August 25th.

According to the event website, there will be live performances in the newly built concert space, an open-air arcade, kids activities and of course food & drink.

The evening line-up of live entertainment includes performances from local musicians Myles CastelloMonowhalesBrave Shores, and headliners, the art-rock duo Darcys.

The Block Party also celebrates the opening of the Strachan Gate, designed by Gensler with Public Work, at the west end of the site. A grand, cascading wooden staircase and open-air Amphitheatre, the Strachan Gate serves as the main entrance to The Bentway, directly from Strachan Avenue, and doubles as an intimate performance space which can accommodate approximately 250 people.
