address: Kensington Market (map)
Here is the schedule for 2012:
Pedestrian Sunday Festivals – May 27th, July 29th, and September 30th.
Market Sundays – Sundays in August and September - August 5, 12, 19, 26 & September 2, 9,16, 23.
Select Sundays from May to October the streets of kensignton are closed to cars and people are allowed to roam free. The result is an exuberent expression of community, filled with music, performance art, and free-spiritedness that encompasses the full spectrum of Toronto's culture.
Pedestrian Sundays, as you might expect from the kensignton community, has managed to evade the cheesy, overly-commercial ambiance that seems to predominate at most street fairs. Rather the organizers emphasize a "hand-made" culture of neighbours playing together in the street, motivated more by love than by money.
I just wish it could be every weekend.
