Taste of the Danforth has been cancelled.
The popular street festival in the city’s Greektown District says with the uncertainty over public health conditions over the winter, plus the planning and logistics needed to organize the event for more than 1 million people, there just wasn’t enough time to organize this year’s event.
In a statement posted to Twitter, the Greektown Danforth Business Improvement Area wrote that, “The short timeline available to adapt the event to the changes in the street meant that Taste of the Danforth in 2022 was at too great a risk of not being as successful as in the past.”
They plan to return to the festival in 2023 and say, “Our membership and the broader community have high expectations for a great event.”
The last Taste of the Danforth was in 2019.
