DUKE Heights BIA hosts first ever DUKE EATS Festival

Kick off your Canada day long weekend celebrations with some outdoor fun!
TORONTO, May 31, 2018 — the DUKE Heights Business Improvement Area will be hosting its first ever outdoor food festival to highlight its thriving food sector. DUKE Eats is a free festival, open to all members of the community and will feature a diverse range of foods, indigenous craft vendors, an entertainment zone, and countless other festival activities. The festival will also feature popular food trucks from outside of the BIA, such as BeaverTails, Queen Arepa, Road Grill and many more.

In addition to the delicious food options, the fun will continue after the food and entertainment, with the screening of a free outdoor movie in collaboration with Councilor Anthony Perruzza, at the Fountainhead Park from 9:00 PM- 11:30PM.
The DUKE Eats festival is accessible by public transportation and the festival grounds are adjacent to the Finch West subway station. The festival will promote sustainable transportation and will feature:
• the Plug n’ Drive Electric Vehicle Discovery Centre, offering test drives of electric cars and information,
• Regenesis bike clinic, offering free minor repairs and tune-ups for bikes,
• Metrolinx, offering information on the construction of the future Finch West LRT.

In line with this green initiative, the Compost Council of Canada has partnered with DUKE to ensure sustainable waste disposal, and practices throughout the festival. Don’t forget to join us for DUKE Eats, a delicious, free, fun-filled and exciting way to kick off your Canada Day long weekend celebrations!
Special thanks to our festival sponsor TD bank.
