Mennonite Singing in Toronto at Black Creek Pioneer Village

The annual Toronto Mennonite Festival always puts the focus on the quilt auction that is surrounded by food vendors. So their two free music programs don’t get much publicity, despite the importance of vocal music in the Mennonite tradition.

Free Music in the Town Hall Green at Black Creek Pioneer Village

Visitors strolling in the Black Creek Pioneer Village town hall green will hear free musical performances much of the day. That program takes a break during the quilt auction, which starts at noon. Otherwise, a variety of folk and gospel music mingles with the aroma of apple fritters, Sloppy Joes, sausage on sauerkraut, and other foods reflecting past or modern Mennonite cuisine from different backgrounds.

Join the Four Part Harmony of Mennonite Singing

The other musical gem is hidden in the Mennonite Meeting House. Starting at 10:30am, some Mennonites from Toronto and the GTA will sing for up to an hour. You’re invited to sing along with the Mennonites singing in four part harmony; “no experience is required”. Or simply listen to a few of their hymns.
The Meetinghouse is building 39 in the official Black Creek Pioneer Village map (PDF). After you go north from the entrance in the Visitor Centre building, turn right (east) as you pass the first building. (That’s the tin smith shop and Masonic Lodge). The next building is the Mennonite Meeting House.

If you cannot get to the Toronto Mennonite Festival on Sept. 20, 2014, you could visit one of the “Mennonite Churches in Toronto and the GTA“. These worship services are open to anyone.

To illustrate how seriously Mennonites take their music, many congregations currently have one hardcover hymnal and two supplementary spiral-bound song books. Often these are simply called the “blue hymnal, green hymnal or purple hymnal” during church services. “Hymnal: A Worship Book” was published in 1992; the others are more recent. Order one or more for yourself:

  • “The Mennonite Hymnal: A Worship Book” in Canada or in the USA via Amazon.
  • “Sing the Journey” in Canada or in the USA via Amazon.
  • “Sing the Story” in Canada or in the USA via Amazon.

Of course, the Toronto Mennonite Festival could use a slightly older reddish-brown hymnal, or any of three older versions published in the second half of the 20th century. With more than two centuries under its belt, Mennonite denominations have enjoyed a rich tradition of singing hymns in 4 part harmony. (Reference: “History of Published Mennonite Hymnals“).

When and Where is the 2014 Toronto Mennonite Festival?

The Toronto Mennonite Festival is an annual autumn Toronto event on the third Saturday of September; Sept. 20, 2014 this year. The entrance opens at 10am. As noted, the four part singing starts at 10:30. The quilt auction begins at noon. The whole event wraps up around 4pm.

Black Creek Pioneer Village hosts the Toronto Mennonite Festival. It’s just west of the main York University campus. The address is 1000 Murray Ross Parkway, which runs south from Steeles Ave. just east of Jane St. and well west of Keele St.

Free Live Music at the Junction Music Festival on Sept. 20, 2014

“But wait! there’s more” singing in Toronto this Saturday.

The Junction Music Festival also runs on Saturday Sept. 20, 2014. It boasts free live music on five stages on Dundas St. West between Quebec Ave. & Indian Grove. The event is centred on Keele St. & Dundas St. W.; and there are smaller performances as well all along Dundas Street.

I’d suggest taking transit via TTC buses that connect to the Number 2 Bloor-Danforth subway line. The 30 Lambton bus come from the High Park subway station; the 40 Junction bus links at Dundas West;  and the 41 Keele and 89 Weston buses from the Keele station.

If I were going there for lunch, I’d start at the west end with the on-street buskers and “Live music all day” at the Axis Gallery and Grill. The first stage shows, as well as many of the other performances, start in the early afternoon and run into the evening.

Manifesto Live at Yonge Dundas Square

Also on Sept. 20, 2014, Yonge Dundas Square hosts free live music and dance for the Manifesto festival. This “festival of community and culture” runs from Sept. 17-21, 2014, at a variety of venues.

Again, for the live free performances at Yonge Dundas Square, the TTC should be your chariot of choice, whether the Number 1 Yonge subway line is running or you have to rely on the 505 Dundas streetcar.

Savour the 2014 Taste of the Kingsway in Toronto

The 2014 Taste of the Kingsway festival returns to Bloor St. West on either side of Royal York Road on its annual weekend in September. This popular west of downtown street festival features food, a dog show, live performances on two stages and street-based entertainment. Except for the food, all the fun is free, as far as I can tell.

"Map of the Taste of the Kingsway in Toronto" image by Mike DeHaan via Google Maps
“Map of the Taste of the Kingsway in Toronto” image by Mike DeHaan via Google Maps

Where is the 2014 Taste of the Kingsway Festival?

Two stages bracket the Taste of the Kingsway festival: the Montgomery Stage at the west end (at Montgomery and Bloor); and the Prince Edward Stage to the east. (Yes, you guessed: at the intersection of Prince Edward Drive North and Bloor St. West).

What does the Taste of the Kingsway 2014 Offer?

What’s on stage? A variety of musical genres, from ’50s rock and tribute bands through disco, jazz and R&B to classical instrumentals and opera (The International Tenors).

The Taste of the Kingsway 2014 organizers are keeping their list of street performers and buskers relatively secret.

I think two highlights will be the Scotiabank Dog Show on Saturday from noon to 3pm; and climbing the rock wall. Beyond that, you can see antique cars (anytime) or slightly younger retired Maple Leafs hockey veterans (Sunday afternoon). Kids should enjoy the midway rides and clowns.

And since it’s a “Taste of…” festival, you can expect cuisine from the local restaurants.

When is the 2014 Taste of the Kingsway festival?

The 2014 Taste of the Kingsway runs from 5pm Friday Sept. 5, 2014 (to 10pm), through Saturday 11am-10pm, to Sundary from 11am until 6pm.

Take the #2 subway (Bloor-Danforth) to the Royal York station. Walk out and you will be in the middle of the action. The Islington 110 bus or Royal York Road 15 bus should get you fairly close. While you could bike to the Taste of the Kingsway festival, it’s always difficult to move the bicycle through a crowd.

The Official Taste of the Kingsway Web Site

For more details, and a rather fascinating video introduction to the 2014 Taste of the Kingsway festival, refer to the official Taste of the Kingsway web site.

In 2012 I’d listed a number of other annual “Toronto Festivals and Events 1 Weekend After Labour Day 2012” along with this Taste. Many of them are likely to still be running, so check those too.

Find the Beach Celtic Festival 2014 in Toronto

The Beach Celtic Festival returns to Kew Beach Toronto in 2014 for the 11th time. The organizers and performers want you to celebrate “all things Celtic” with them at the lovely Toronto park of Kew Gardens.

"Old House in Kew Gardens in Toronto" by John Vetterli
“Old House in Kew Gardens in Toronto” by John Vetterli

The Beach Celtic Festival, the Outdoor Ceilidh of Toronto

The Beach Celtic Festival proudly proclaims itself to be a free festival celebrating Gaelic culture. General admission is free, and so are the performances.

Celtic dance and music make this a lively two-day ceilidh, set in Kew Gardens in Toronto.

The organizers have not yet published a detailed list of vendors at press time. They promise that someone will sell food appropriate for the occasion, and that others will provide activities to entertain children.

(If you fancy Celtic jewelry that happens to be unavailable at the 2014 Beach Celtic Festival, consider browsing through Amazon’s selection. Personally, I think this Celtic Knot pendant is quite charming).

Their main selling feature is the music, as ensured by fiddles, pipes and drums. Both Scottish and Irish dancers will show their talents; you could take a ceilidh dance lesson during this annual festival.

Since it is outdoors, wear your sun screen or bring your umbrella as needed. You may also want to bring your own folding chair, unless you plan to dance to the music all day.

When is Beach Celtic Festival 2014?

Beach Celtic Festival 2014 runs Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 6-7, from 9am to 7pm daily.

Where is Beach Celtic Festival 2014?

Kew Gardens is just north of Kew Beach Toronto, on Queen St. E between Waverley and Lee Ave. Take the number 2 (Bloor/Danforth) subway to either Woodbine Ave. or Main St., and then a bus south to Queen. Then catch the 501 Queen streetcar unless you’d like to window shop for a few hundred metres.

An even better approach from the west is to bicycle along the Martin Goodman Trail past Coxwell Ave. and through the eastern beaches. Then pass the elevated swimming pool and the tennis courts; the next patch of green space is Kew Gardens.

The Official Beach Celtic Festival Web Site

Check the official Beach Celtic Festival web site for more details on the performers, plus the back story of this annual Toronto event of early autumn. In previous years I’ve covered the “The 2013 Beach Celtic Festival in Toronto” explicitly, and mentioned it among “Toronto Festivals and Events 1 Weekend After Labour Day 2012“.

How to See the Toronto CNE Air Show Free

Many of us living in Toronto will see, and hear, parts of the annual CNE air show for free. You could pay admission to the Canadian National Exhibition, and watch the sky above the lake from anywhere in Exhibition Place that’s not obstructed by the midway rides. Or pay a bit more for VIP seating for the Toronto air show?

But what if you want to see the Toronto CNE Air Show free? Here are my suggestions. Please remember to stand clear of the bike paths while you watch! (And don’t even think of just stopping your car on a street or highway… or trying to watch while driving).

"Map of Waterfront Toronto Parks Nearest the CNE" image by Mike DeHaan via Google Maps
“Map of Waterfront Toronto Parks Nearest the CNE” image by Mike DeHaan via Google Maps

See the CNE Air Show from the Nearest Parks

Please refer to the above map. The Air Show VIP seating, and the CNE, are marked with pink. Recommend parks have blue circles.

Let’s start with the nearest parks bordering on Lake Ontario that are west of the CNE and Ontario Place.

Marilyn Bell Park for the Toronto air show

Marilyn Bell Park is closest to the Canadian National Exhibition grounds. The easternmost part of Marilyn Bell Park will be reserved for VIP seating for the air show. Toronto does have other parks farther west; Sunnyside Park is the most familiar name.

The best way to get to Marilyn Bell Park is to bicycle along the Martin Goodman Trail. I would take the TTC using the 508 Lake Shore, 504 King or 501 Queen streetcars. The TTC route guide would suggest then taking the 29 Dufferin bus to the CNE grounds, but you’re trying to avoid paying to get in there.

Sometimes Marilyn Bell Park becomes a parking lot for itinerant CNE staff – those folk who travel with the midway rides – so I hesitate to recommend this venue as the absolute best bet. It certainly is very close, and would have great sightlines.

Battery Park, Coronation Park and Stadium Road South Park

Battery Park and Coronation Park are east of Ontario Place and the Canadian National Exhibition, but also on the water’s edge. Once you are in those parks, head south to be as close to Lake Ontario as possible, but please don’t block the bike trails.

The TTC’s advice is to take the bus replacing the 509 Harbourfront streetcar to Strachan, or Fleet Street at Bastion Street (near Fort York). Walk south to cross Lake Shore Blvd at a traffic light, and enter Coronation Park. (Battery Park is just west of the driveway that looks like an extension of Strachan, that forms the western boundary of Coronation Park).

Again, the best approach is to bike along the Martin Goodman Trail into Coronation Park. That trail disappears along much Queen’s Quay, where it is simply part of the curb lane. Unfortunately, in 2014, Queen’s Quay is under construction. It may be wisest to cycle along King St. and turn south on Strachan.

A little further east, you could walk to the foot of Stadium Road, south of the western end of Queen’s Quay. Stadium Road South Park is tucked against the western channel, facing Billy Bishop Airport on the Toronto Islands. It’s just south-west of Little Norway Park as seen in the first map.

These three parks top my list for seeing the Toronto CNE air show.

Can You Watch CNE Airshow 2014 from Centre Island?

Yes, you can watch the 2014 CNE airshow from Centre Island, at the cost of a ferry ticket. That’s why the map has a red circle around “Toronto Islands” and “Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport”.

On the other hand, the sight lines are superb, and the setting is excellent. As well, fewer tourists are likely to visit Centre Island during the CNE.

(Added Aug. 30, 2014): Thanks to alert reader Nadia M. for suggesting that Hanlan’s Point Beach on the Toronto Islands has great sight lines towards the CNE and Ontario Place. Take the “Hanlan’s Point Ferry” from the Toronto Island Ferry dock at the foot of Bay St. You reach the island just south of the east-most end of Billy Bishop Airport. Follow Lakeshore Ave. south until you can cut across to the beach on the west side. It’s actually labelled (by Google) on the above map. Just remember that Hanlan’s Point Beach is “clothing optional” by City of Toronto bylaw! Some folks may have trouble keeping “their eyes to the skies”.

See the CNE Air Show from Parks to the East

"Map of Waterfront Toronto Parks East of the CNE" image by Mike DeHaan via Google Maps
“Map of Waterfront Toronto Parks East of the CNE” image by Mike DeHaan via Google Maps

Another option for seeing the CNE Toronto air show is to go further east.

Clark Beach Park, aka Cherry Beach for the CNE Toronto air show

Since Clark Beach Park is at the foot of Cherry Street, it’s often called “Cherry Beach”. The beach boasts a change room, sand and wooded parkland. The T&T Grocery store is just up Cherry Street, so you don’t need to plan and pack your picnic lunch.

It’s a convenient destination for car drivers. Turn south from Lake Shore Blvd East onto Cherry Street; free parking starts after you reach the driveway at the end of the road. But be sure to only park in designated areas; I’ve heard of people getting tickets for parking on the grass. Also, nearby street parking is reserved for tour buses.

(Added later on Aug. 25, 2014): The 172B Cherry St bus loops the traffic circle at Clark Beach Park, and returns to the Line 1 subway at King and St. Andrews stations. The 172A bus only goes as far south as Commissioner’s St, but it’s a pleasant 1Km walk down Cherry St. and across the lift bridge to the beach. And you can gaze with anticipation at the Cirque du Soleil’s tents, just recently raised at the corner of Commissioner’s and Cherry.

In August 2014, Leslie Street is closed at Commissioner’s; so don’t try driving along Leslie to reach Clark Beach Park.

Again, Clark Beach Park is on the Martin Goodman Trail, so it’s an excellent cycling option. The bike path is still open along Leslie.

Tommy Thompson Park, aka Leslie Street Spit for the Long View of the CNE Air Show

One year, my wife and I walked through Tommy Thompson Park from the foot of Leslie Street until we had an unimpeded view towards Ontario Place. We did have a clear view of the CNE air show, but it was a bit far to really appreciate without binoculars. (In Aug. 2014, Amazon.ca has a few Celestron 71256 UpClose 10×50 Binoculars in stock. That’s their most popular model, with a 4.6/5 rating over 25 customers.).

Tommy Thompson Park, better known as the Leslie Street Spit, is open to the public on weekends. Park your car at Leslie and Unwin, if the small number of spaces just inside the park aren’t already in use. Again, cycling is the best option to reach the park and to reach the western shore. It’s about 5Km from the park entrance, at the north-east, to the lighthouse at the western tip of the Spit.

The western tip of Tommy Thompson Park is almost as close to the CNE as Clark Beach Park.

When is the 2014 Canadian National Exhibition Toronto Air Show?

The Toronto CNE Air Show runs during the Labour Day holiday weekend. In 2014, the shows are scheduled for Saturday, Sunday and Monday afternoons, from 1-4pm. Expect some excitement Friday Aug. 29 between 10am-2pm for the pilots to practice. (Updated Aug. 29, 2014 because I inexcusably missed “Monday”).

The performance centres on the southern tip of the Canadian National Exhibition grounds, but generally planes approach and depart along Toronto’s lakefront.

References for this Canadian National Exhibition Toronto Air Show Article

I found the VIP seating information for the Canadian National Exhibition Toronto Air Show on the Canadian International Air Show FAQ web page. The Toronto Transit Commission web site includes maps and a “trip planner” facility. Finally, Google Maps Canada and the MilerMeter (Gmaps-Pedometer) supplied the basic mapping images (which I marked up) and distance information.

Looking for More Annual Events or a Holiday in Toronto Canada?

My blog highlights many of the annual Toronto events that I find interesting; especially for free or frugal things to do in Toronto. For example, last year I wrote “Enjoy the CNE on the Cheap in 2013“. Most of the advice still holds, except for some details on the exact admission prices. Just remember to buy your tickets before opening day!

(Added Aug. 29, 2014): For example, our family used to visit Marineland Niagara Falls during the CNE Air Show weekend, because so many tourists were drawn into Toronto. Americans looking for “Marineland Canada” should visit on the Labor Day weekend for this very reason: the Marineland rides are much less crowded, especially first thing in the morning. (Only in recent years has the controversy over Marineland’s treatment of its marine mammals become a hot issue. I’m not sure whether I’d go back, even for the roller coaster).

Sample the 2014 Festival of South Asia in Toronto

What can you sample at the 2014 Festival of South Asia in Toronto? The most obvious are food, fashion and music.

"TD Festival of South Asia Banner" image by Mike DeHaan

The South Asia Festival in Toronto

The South Asia festival is an annual summer event in Toronto. The retail stores of Little India in Toronto invite musicians and dancers to their festival stage in the Gerrard India Bazaar district. Up to two dozen Little India restaurants offer a range of take-out dishes; although you might find seating indoors, as always. (My long-time favourite has been the Skylark restaurant. For the one person not wanting South Asian cuisine, Lazy Daisy’s Cafe offers bagel sandwiches and a family-friendly coffee shop ambience).

The cultural offerings include music and entertainment with Afghani, Bengali, Indian, Pakistani and Sri Lankan roots. The TD Festival of South Asian Dancers perform Sat. at 3pm and 5:30pm, then on Sun. at 3pm and 5:20pm.

The South Asian fashion show takes the stage at 4:30pm, 5:30pm and 7:10pm on Sunday.

Yes, they do have other performances throughout the weekend; those may be the most visually spectacular in a colourful weekend.

The 2014 Festival of South Asia presents its first show on Sat. Aug. 23 at 2:00pm. The official opening ceremony, including the “Dandy Parade”, is at 6pm. The final stage program begins at 8:30pm on Saturday. Then on Sunday, performances run from 2pm and begin closing at

Shopping can be a big deal, especially if you’re looking for fabrics or clothing. Little India in Toronto always draws a crowd for these deals.

The Toronto Festival of South Asia usually includes kid’s rides or activities; perhaps a small midway; offers from merchants; and the usual teams to administer first aid, keep the peace and tidy the streets. (Updated Aug. 23, 2014): No midway this year; I was a bit disappointed. On the political side: Olivia Chow campaigned in person with a small team; Rob Ford had the most volunteers but I didn’t see him; and David Soknacki was invisible during the time I was on site, around 6pm Saturday evening.

Where is the South Asia Festival in Toronto?

Little India in Toronto covers Gerrard Street west from Coxwell Avenue towards Greenwood Avenue. Take the 92 Coxwell South bus from the Coxwell subway station to “lower Gerrard” street, and simply follow your eyes, ears and nose west. The Carlton streetcar cannot plow through the Festival of Little India.

My wife and I attend most years. It’s not nearly as long a walk as the Taste of the Danforth, more colourful, and not quite so crowded. Mind the streetcar tracks as you walk!

The Festival of South Asia is a free event, although you will spend a bit for South Asian cuisine. I’d written “Festival of South Asian Culture in Toronto in 2012“, if you want to see what I had thought important to share back then.

Alternatives to the Festival of South Asia in Toronto

This weekend has several alternatives or additions to the South Asia Festival in Toronto. I’d written “Toronto Buskerfest 2014 Back on Yonge Street at Dundas Square” earlier this week; go there the other day!

What about the free Butterfly Festival in Tommy Thompson Park, only on Sat. Aug. 23? This annual summer event is south and just a touch west from the Gerrard India Bazaar, at the foot of Leslie Street. (Yes, it’s the “Leslie Street Spit”). Remember that the TTC is laying down streetcar tracks from Queen, across Lake Shore Blvd East and down Leslie Street, which is closed to cars at Commissioner’s Road. It’s no problem to bicycle along the Martin Goodman Trail. To drive to Tommy Thompson, head south along Cherry Street, turn left on Unwin, and the Spit awaits. (Cherry Street is not shown on the map below; it’s a kilometre or two west). Be careful on the various bridges along that route! Events run from 10am to 3pm.

Another nearby free outdoor event is the Wild Blueberry Festival at Evergreen Brickworks, only on Sun. Aug. 24. Bike or drive on Bayview Avenue. (I think of it as the Bayview Extension). This is more “farmers market” than “pick your own”… I can’t believe there would be a berry patch large enough for picking.

Beer lovers can pay your admission at Black Creek Pioneer Village, then get to work harvesting hops. I’ve always admired the grist mill there, for the ingenuity of design and sheer muscle to build it. Although the Toronto Star’s print article said “Free”, the Black Creek Pioneer Village Hop Harvest page talks about a registration fee. (And says nothing about waiving admission).

Official Sources for the Festival of South Asia and the Outdoor Events

The TD Festival of South Asia web site presents the official details.

My thanks to the “Explore” page in the Sept. 22, 2014 Toronto Star newspaper for “Three things to do this weekend”. Yes, that’s exactly where I found the last three Toronto summer events.
