Luminato Neighbourhood Food Festival #GTA #The6ix

The Luminato Neighbourhood Food Festival coming to Toronto.  It’ll be a two day backyard party food smorgasbord outside of Union Station on Father’s Day weekend, June 18-19. Admission is FREE and each dish at the festival will cost $6!

Disclosure: I have not been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

You can’t say that there’s nothing to do that weekend.  The food festival is the perfect activity for Father’s Day with chef demonstrations taking place every hour on the hour, giant chess and Jenga games to entertain the whole family and even a “backyard bar” by Parts & Labour in case Dad gets thirsty.
