A two-month-long food and music festival is coming to Toronto this summer

Union Summer, presented by TD, lights up Union Station’s Front Street plaza from June 24 to August 25, transforming it into Toronto’s ultimate summer playground. This annual extravaganza merges mouthwatering eats, live tunes  and cool drinks in an al fresco setting.

Prepare for 60 days of non-stop action under the sun (or umbrella) thanks to vibrant beats from local DJs and musicians, a curated lineup of eats featuring rotating vendors like Gus Tacos and Bao Mama, plus a new dessert booth serving up everything from crêpes to chocolate-dipped strawberries.

Midway through the festival, Union Summer keeps the excitement fresh with rotating food vendors. Look out for a Ninja-sponsored lineup of Toronto’s finest chefs and an exciting newcomer: Cleo’s Burgers by Tut’s Egyptian Street Food.

And then there’s the Malibu Bar – a beach-themed oasis dishing out exclusive rum cocktails and Instagram-worthy specials you won’t find anywhere else. It’s the perfect spot for a sip and a snap.

Music lovers can also rejoice! The TD Stage sets the scene with daily performances, including a kickoff by Maestro Fresh Wes on June 25. With the CN Tower as your backdrop, groove to soulful melodies and energetic beats during lunch and evening sessions throughout the week.

Additional free programming at Union Summer includes a variety of themed days and nights to enhance your experience. Enjoy Blues Mondays with afternoon and evening sessions, TD Music Tuesdays featuring top sponsored artists and Social Tuesday Nights with activities like trivia and karaoke.
