This street takeover is part of the Beaches International Jazz Festival, a month-long music celebration that is held each year in July right in the Beaches.

According to organizers, it is one of the largest free jazz festivals in Canada with almost a million attendees throughout the month.

StreetFest is just one out of five festivals taking place during the month-long celebration. The overall festival takes place at a number of venues, and stage concerts in several different parks of the area.

Road Closures

For drivers, it’s important to note that Waverley Rd, Lee Ave and Wineva Ave will remain open during the StreetFest hours for thoroughway traffic. “Please make sure your vehicles are not parked on Queen St East. Between 4:00 – 6:00 pm July 25 – 27, 2024.  Vehicles parked on both the north and south sides of Queen Street East will be towed,” shared organizers.

Not only is summer a perfect time to explore your city but it’s also a chance to make friends and discover spots you may have never heard of before.

Everyone is welcome to attend and see what Toronto’s Beaches has to offer.

July is the month of street festivals and you don’t want to miss out on all the excitement.
