From its roots in Toronto’s long history to now, The Kingsway has been a destination for local charm, community and boutique shopping. Only a short subway ride away from Toronto’s downtown core, you can experience some of the best events and specialty shops that the city has to offer.
Year round, The Kingsway BIA delivers family friendly events such as The Summer Sidewalk Sale #ShopTheKingsway, Pumpkin Fest and the Taste of the Kingsway Festival. In the wintertime, The Kingsway is decorated for the Christmas season. The Kingsway BIA is also proud to support community initiatives, like the Dorothy Ley Hospice Charity Bed Race. Community involvement is just one of the many ways that the BIA helps to develop great businesses.
Foodies have plenty of options to choose from when visiting The Kingsway. Great restaurants and the annual festival Taste of The Kingsway, bring out rich, international flavours at an affordable price. Not only that but entertainers are brought in to perform and midway rides are built for this special event. Over 200 exhibitors participate, and the festival features a beer and wine garden for sampling.
No community would be complete without a wide selection of professional services, from auto repair and hair salons to dentistry and more. The Kingsway is also well known for its great schools and family friendly charm.
The Kingsway BIA works with its members to foster a sense of community and business growth through monthly breakfast clubs. Business owners take the time to meet and learn about different tools to make business ownership easier. This is just one of the ways The Kingsway BIA supports main street business.
The Kingsway is a supportive community with plenty of opportunities to connect with neighbours and business owners at local cafes or simply visiting one of the fresh fruit markets down the street. If classic elegance mixed with indie charm is what you’re looking for, you’ll find it on The Kingsway.
