You all did such a great job of showcasing our stretch of Dundas in 2013 that city-wide interest in this year's edition is very high and we need to be prepared.
Many outside vendors are wanting a spot on the street. We want to give our members first dibs, so please get back to us by the deadlines indicated, or sooner. Time will fly.
If you have already contacted us to confirm your participation, thank you! No need to do so again.
Please note that the restrictions outlined below are mandated by various city departments, not by us. Inspectors from Municipal Licensing & Standards will be in attendance again this year. Unlike last year, however, they may not be as lenient.
Then on Sunday, May 4
, we are hosting two Janes Walks
: The Cornucopia of Dundas West at 3pm &Anatomy of a Street Festival - Year 2, starting at 11amon the same day. Please click on the titles for more information. This is an excellent way to get to know the neighbourhood you love. We will once again prepare swag bags for attendees that BIA members can contribute items to, as free promotion for your business. Contact us ASAP if interested.
Finally, on Saturday, June 7
, we close Dundas
to vehicular traffic and open it up to pedestrians from all over the city for Dundas West Fest
. This year promises to be even better than our inaugural edition!
Our tree guards will finally get installed on both sides of the street (the north side has already thawed out enough), a new mural will be added to our street art series and our planters, parkettes and hanging baskets will get a colourful makeover.
