Toronto is gearing up for the 6th Annual Albion Islington Square Fusion of Taste Festival, the season’s most exciting South Asian event.
This fun family festival will feature amazing traditions from South Asia, the West Indies and from around the world. The party is happening at Albion Road and Islington Avenue on July 21 from 12:00pm to 10:30pm
“It’s important that this event appeals to everyone,” said Albion Islington Square BIA Chairman Shamsher Singh. “In Toronto, we say that diversity is our strength. There is so much happening at this year’s festival with the highlight marking the induction of legendary professional wrestlers, humanitarians and philanthropists Tiger Jeet Singh, his son Tiger Ali Singh and Canadian boxing legend George Chuvalo to the Albion Islington Square Walk of Fame at 3:00 pm with an autograph session shortly thereafter with the Tigers.”
“My Father and I are absolutely thrilled and grateful” said Tiger Ali Singh, “and we are truly humbled in receiving this honour.”
The BIA’s Board of Management and Councillor Vincent Crisanti (Ward 1 – Etobicoke North) expect more than 50,000 people will turn out again this year to enjoy Bhangra, Bollywood and West Indian dancing and live musical performances by Prita Chhabra, Parichay, SW Storm, Music Fever Musical Group, Shiamak Davar Dance Group and many more.
“We are closing off the streets and are ready for another Fusion of Taste Festival,” said Councillor Crisanti. “This has always been a great event for families and this year, there are some very exciting things in store for everybody.”
