Did you know that the GTA is home to over 200,000 residents of Greek ancestry, the third largest Hellenic community outside of Greece! During the 1960’s and ’70s is when Toronto saw the largest influx of Greek immigrants! At the Taste of the Danforth, visitors have the opportunity to experience being “Greek for the Day”. However, the festival is much more than the celebration of the Danforth’s Greek history, as it is also a celebration of Canada’s multiculturalism.
