Toronto's St. Lawrence Market Is Hosting A Massive Feast This Summer
You had me at feast.
Did someone say Feast? The St. Lawrence Market Neighbourbood is launching its FIRST annual Feast of St. Lawrence Festival from August 10-12 this summer! If you are a fine food connoisseur or just like feeling fancy AF, you can be one of two hundred exclusive guests taking pleasure in a lavish 5-course meal by some of your favourite, quality restaurants in Toronto and enjoy an assortment of wines from consortium vineyards.
To kickoff the festival, St. Lawrence Festival will host a Dinner Under The Stars this Friday, August 10th between 630pm and 11pm. This dinner is an elegant, al fresco fine dining event which seats two hundred guests, who can enjoy swanky live music by a 20-piece jazz ensemble, and dine under the stars. It will display an attractive 100-foot table extending along Front Street, where guests are treated to a scrumptious 5-course meal specially prepared by talented chefs from some of the best restaurants in the St. Lawrence area like Biffs Bistro, The Hot House Restuarant, The Sultan's Tent, and Pearl Diver.
Wine from Price Edward County's classic vineyards and Creemore Springs beer will be served with dinner, and Toronto's own CC Lounge will showcase a special Whisky tasting bar (yum). This fancy foodie event will begin with tasteful and beautifully presented hors d'oeuvres, followed by a wine and beer reception.
Guests will definitely feel spoiled as they dine under a starry night, indulging in a mouthwatering feast prepared by some of the top local chefs in Toronto. Tickets are $200 and include dinner, wine pairings from impressive wineries and jazzy live entertainment. Funds that are raised that evening will be given to FoodShare Toronto and a generous tax receipt will be issued for a portion of the cost.
On Saturday, between the hours of 10am and 11pm, the celebration moves to Toronto's rich and rustic St. Lawrence Market and Market St! It will feature local farm fresh produce, outdoor foot stalls and seating areas, live entertainment, and food preparation demonstrations. There will be extended patios by the Market Street Restaurants, as well as live music by the Beatles cover band The Rattles. This event is pretty much every foodie's dream, and it's also a great way to catch some sun before the hot summer weather goes away.
On Sunday, between hours of 10am and 4pm, your friends and family can enjoy fun, food and activities in St. James Park. The Festival has organized various different activities and games that gathers the entire family together, like face painting, arts and crafts, puppet shows, kid-friendly food workshops, and sword fighting lessons. This festival seems like a great way to bring the family together for some much needed quality time and much neededlaughs.
