Do West Fest is Toronto’s start to the summer, in the heart of Little Portugal (Little Portugal Toronto BIA).
We are an annual celebration of music, arts, food, fun, and community along Dundas Street West, from Ossington Street to Landsdowne Avenue, covering 14 city blocks. We bring the neighbourhood together and draw visitors to the area to explore shops, food, and rich cultural diversity.
Local businesses participate in the festival, with over 30 licensed patios and more than 200 unique local vendors. Last festival’s estimated attendance was approximately 150,000+ people, and this year is looking even more fun and lively. Since our humble start, the festival has been growing yearly and we have built a reputation as a culturally rich festival that celebrates local talent while showcasing cutting-edge international artistic projects. There is a fresh hip vibe along the street with many young artists and entrepreneurs jostling and interacting with the old guard in lively and curious ways.
