Food events in Toronto this August feature some of the summer's most highly anticipated festivals. From the Big Feastival in Oro-Medonte to the popular vegan love-in at Fort York, you'll have a hard time choosing how to indulge over the next 31 days.Events you might want to check out:
Toronto Food Truck Festival (August 4-7 @ Woodbine Park)
Instead of chasing them down, catch Toronto's best food trucks all in one place. There will be lots to taste here, so pace yourself.
Dinner Under the Stars (August 11 @ Berczy Park)
Tickets to this outdoor dinner don't come cheap ($200 each), but some of the proceeds go to a good cause. If you're willing to fork out the dough, you'll be treated to a five-course meal right on Front Street.
Waterfront Night Market (August 11-13 @ Hearn Generating Station)
This night market has a new location for 2017, so head to Toronto's abandoned power plant to feast!
