And don’t forget about the entertainment! Enjoy your delicious eats with a stunning performance of cultural proportions and more.

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.”

This will be the 19th year of the event and it will take place at Kennedy and Steeles, starting on June 23rd and ending on June 25th.

So, get ready to celebrate and immerse yourself in the vibrant multiculturalism of our city through delicious food and family-friendly fun!
