This event combines the fourth annual Homegrown Park Crawl, second annual Laneway Crawl, fifth annual Christie Pits Arts Crawl and ninth Bells on Bloor "victory lap" bike parade along the new bike lane on Bloor.
When we found out that the Suzuki Foundation supports bike lanes on Bloor we knew we had to be part of this great community event!
CHRISTIE CRAWLFEST will bring thousands of residents into Christie Pits Park and the surrounding laneways and bike lanes from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It will include musical acts — such as a parade led by the Lemon Bucket Orkestra — food, drink, art, community groups and kids’ activities.
The day will kick off at 10 a.m. with a pop-up art market with 50-plus vendors. At 11 a.m. Bells on Bloor will lead a victory lap bike parade around the Bloor Street bike lane. From noon to 6 p.m. there will be food and drink from 20-plus vendors. At 2:30 p.m., the Lemon Bucket Orkestra will lead a musical parade to the laneway and back.
Admission is FREE. Food tickets are $5 per portion. They can be used at any #CRAWLFEST vendor, including Pizzeria Libretto, Banjara Indian Cuisine,Frank Restaurant and Harvest Kitchen. Drink vendors include Steam Whistle Brewing and Southbrook Vineyards.
NOTE: Until September 8 (tomorrow), a limited number of early bird food ticket packs will be available for $20 for five tickets! We sold out our past three Park Crawl events, so get tickets in advance at www.davidsuzuki.org/
Food is first-come, first-served. Each vendor has a limited number of servings. Food tickets are non-refundable. Beer and wine costs $5 (cash only, on-site). Food tickets can't be exchanged for alcohol.
Proceeds from food and drink tickets go to the David Suzuki Foundation's Homegrown National Park Project, which is tapping local ingenuity to find creative ways to bring nature home to the city.
Please bring your own plates and mugs.
This is a rain-or-shine event, so dress for the weather... but cyclists already know how to do that, don't we?!
