Taste of Asia began back in 2003 during the SARS outbreak with a mandate of boosting the local economy. According to organizers, at the time, it “also provided a platform for the community to promote the multicultural mosaic of Canada.”
The event will take place at Kennedy and Steeles, starting June 24 and concluding on June 26 at 5pm.
