A joint project of the Dundas West BIA and the Little Portugal BIA, the festival promises to be highly engaging, participatory, and community-inspiring, emphasizing the unique character of Dundas Street West. It will take place across 12 city blocks, spanning from the Village of Brockton into Little Portugal with 3 stages, 6 busker areas, 2 kids’ areas, over 40 licensed patios, and vendor stations set up throughout. Special events include the two performances by Clay and Paper Theatre, one at 11:30 a.m. and the other at 3:30 p.m. We will also be joined by a group of buskers playing “Cavaquinho.” Other activities will be ongoing until 6:00 p.m.
