Summer officially kicks-off at the second annual family-friendly BENTWAY BLOCK PARTY.
The Bentway Block Party is free and runs from noon-10pm. The party features live performances from Canadian indie rockers The Elwins, experimental pop band Ellevator, and indie emo-orchestra Common Deer.
Daytime entertainment includes performances by the Heavyweight Brass Band, tunes from DJ JayemKayem (Josephine Cruz), and a Double Dutch demonstrations and free jump session. There will also be face-painting, a colour by numbers scavenger hunt, ping pong tables, and a DIY collage party with multidisciplinary artist Paul Butler. More activities are planned with the Fort York Visitors Centre, and Beanfield, The Bentway’s provider of WiFi. Pilot Coffee and SPIN will take care of nourishment and hydration!
Award-winning interdisciplinary artist and designer Sean Martindale will unveil a one-of-a-kind art installation for The Bentway Block Party. His interventions activate public spaces, often using salvaged goods and live plants in unexpected ways. His playful works suggest alternate possibilities for existing spaces while focusing on ecological and social issues.
