After some confusion whether or not Taste Danforth would take place this year, the beloved street festival has been officially canceled for 2022.

Greektown BIA wrote on its social media and said that this year’s event will be postponed to 2023.

“GreekTown’s board of the Danforth Business Improvement Area has decided that the best way to ensure the festival’s long-term success is to postpone the restart to 2023,” the statement said.


The lively street festival attracts over 1 million people over its duration, with a weekend full of traditional Greek and Mediterranean food, music, dance and activities.

“We know it will take time to plan an event of this size and scale. It was unclear during the winter months whether public health conditions would allow the Taste of the Danforth to take place. When it became clear that we could, there was just not time to imagine Taste of the Danforth for 2022 given changes in the street scene. “

Greektown BIA will spend this extra time creating a bigger and better street festival for 2023, in close collaboration with the city and its partners, so that the festival’s comeback will be the best it can be.

Although the street festival does not take place this year, BIA still invites everyone to visit the neighborhood to take part in the vibrant terrace scene, which will also be filled with live music.

Taste of the Danforth was to take over Greektown from August 5 to August 7.

There is no further information about the festival, but it is set to run sometime in the summer of 2023.
