See you at the Fairbank Summerfest June 27-28, 2020!
experience the festival from the inside!


Calling all volunteers for the Annual Fairbank Summerfest Street Festival!

With help from the city and great volunteers, we’ve managed to close down a section of Eglinton and host thousands of guests! It’s quite the project, but dozens of volunteers and community partners put their time, skills and energy into the event to make the festival bigger and better each year.

Thank you to all the volunteers that have helped over the years to make this and Fairbank Village's other events possible!  We couldn't do this without all of you!
