The Village Square at Main Square will be transformed into a community fair on Saturday, June 4 from noon to 6 p.m.
The free afternoon of fun is part of 100in1Day, a community-led day of ‘interventions’ across the city and beyond.
The 100in1Day event began in Bogotá, Colombia five years ago, but has since spread around the world. The idea is to create small changes temporarily in order to inspire longer lasting positive change at the neighbourhood level.
The Village Square Fair will include music, painting, sidewalk art, a drum circle, buskers, a garden workshop, and even free bicycle tune-ups – you’d have to try hard to not find something for everyone.
The event is just one of several taking place across the East End. Other interventions include a gardening workshop for kids, a music event on Rhodes Avenue, the Kingston Road Village Artwalk (see page 14 for more details) and laneway ‘guerilla’ gardening near Main and Danforth.
