We’re reaching peak summer vibes here in Toronto, making it the perfect time for a high-energy salsa festival right on the beach. Toronto’s Salsa on the Beach kicks off this Saturday and it’ll be a celebration full of music, dance, and togetherness.
The free event will run from the afternoon to the evening on both Saturday and Sunday, with a full lineup of live performances, dance performances, and lessons.
You’ll get to learn how to dance salsa and bachata while listening to the sounds of DJs and Latin bands.
Salsa on the Beach will be held at Woodbine Park right next to the boardwalk, so you can hit the beach for some sun-tanning and volleyball in between songs.

This event is part of the Beaches International Jazz Festival, which kicks off its 34th edition this Saturday, July 2. It will run practically all month long, wrapping on July 24, with many shows and events in between.
It’s one of Canada’s largest free jazz festivals with nearly 1 million attendees, featuring internationally acclaimed jazz performers and local talent.
The salsa-loving public can also look forward to the TD Salsa on St. Clair Festival coming up on July 9, which is Canada’s largest Latin street party.
The festival will take over St. Clair Avenue West from Winona Drive to Christie Street, transforming the area into a “showcase of Latin life in Canada,” according to the event’s description.
This summer is completely packed with events here in Toronto, and Salsa on the Beach is among the ones you definitely don’t want to miss.
