Join us Saturday June 18, 2016 from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm for the Leslieville Tree Festival in Leslie Grove Park (corner of Queen St E and Jones Ave, Toronto). Featuring stage performances, a ceremonial tree planting and tasty local food, this free, fun-filled celebration of our urban forest includes activities for the whole family!

Performers will include Sing Along Tim, Jazz Money, a magician from Zero Gravity Circus, soloists from the Souls of Steel Orchestra and, back by popular demand, Sugar Hoops and the Hoop Jam!

We're also excited to have table exhibits from over 40 environmental groups and local vendors. Free kids activities will include face-painting by Masquerading Faces, tree crafts, grass-head making and a photo booth. LEAF's mascot Barkley will be making appearances throughout the day at the photo booth!
