“Think Spring” Cabbagetowners and mark your calendars for Sunday, May 7 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. as we celebrate the 46th Annual Forsythia Festival!

Things you need to know:

Parade: We will gather at the corner of Sumach and Winchester Streets at 10 a.m. and march through the neighbourhood to the beat of the amazing marching band.

Dress code: Yellow! Dress your strollers, your kids, your pets and yourselves in yellow. Be creative.

Festival at Wellesley Park: The parade ends at Wellesley Park and that’s were the serious fun begins. After a short official opening ceremony and welcoming of Spring, activities will begin. Dangling doughnuts, bouncy castle, face painting, parachute game, photobooth, crafts, bubbles, bean bags and a new addition this year will be a magic show.

Food and beverages: Both will be for sale by local butcher Mark from St. James Town Steak and Chops and beer tent sponsored this year by local Stout Irish Pub.

Bicycle Tune Up Shop: Another new addition to the Forsythia Festival this year is a “Pop Up Spring Tune Up Shop” sponsored by Cycle Solutions…so be sure to bring your bike by for a check up!

Prizes: There will be plenty of prizes available from our generous donors and businesses around Cabbagetown.

Festival Queen and Marshal: We’re looking for our Festival Queen and Festival Marshal. If you know of a great Cabbagetowner who has made a positive contribution to life in the neighbourhood, please nominate them with a brief email note to us at info@cabbagetowner.com telling us why you think they’re great.

We look forward to seeing all our neighbours out and about on May 7th celebrating the arrival of spring together at the 46th annual Cabbagetown Forsythia Festival!

And remember…. The festival happens rain or shine.
