Busy Saturday in the Junction Triangle!

I don't think I've ever seen this many events happening all on the same day in the Junction Triangle. Bikes, bees, butterflies, beauty, bartering, and boxcars*. Here's a quick rundown. Click the links to get more info about each event.

100 in 1 Day Festival:
Three events that are part of the 100 in 1 Day Festival are taking place in the Junction Triangle, along the West Toronto Railpath. All of them help celebrate the awesomeness of our neighbourhood and surrounding areas:

  • West Toronto Railpath Milkweed Planting Day. Railpath at Wallace Bridge, 9am-1pm. Help plant 500 new milkweed plants along the Railpath to provide habitat for monarch butterflies!
  • Buzz on the Bridge. Wallace Ave. Footbridge, 10am-6pm. "Community party with local artists playing music and showing their art, bridge decorating and mural painting for kids and adults and other community building activities. Swing dancing from 12-2".
  • Love Letters to the Junction Triangle, Past Present, and Future. Railpath at Wallace Bridge, 10am-3pm. "A collection of thoughts, feelings and photos of the traditional and newly welcomed communities in the Junction Triangle", with opportunity to submit your own thoughts etc.

Kids and Cargo Bikes, 10am-11am at Perth Square Park, followed by a family ride on the Railpath. Come and show off your own cargo bike, or see what other people have. Some vendors are also coming.

Really Really Free Market, 10am-4pm at Campbell Park. Drop off items to give away for free, or pick up your own free stuff or services. Also, free food. Free. Really. Really.

Kids and Cargo Bikes

This is a Toronto Bike Month activity happening at Perth Park and the West Toronto Railpath. Details are from the Bike Month event listing:


A rally for everyone for everyone who owns or is interested in cargo bikes.

Event Type: Ride
Time: Saturday, June 6 at 10:00 am - Saturday, June 6 at 12:00 pm

Kids and cargo bikes are a great combination. Meet up at 10 am. At 11, there will be a family bike ride (Kidical Mass) along the West Toronto Railpath, and back to the Park. We hope to have a number of cargo bike vendors in attendance.

100 in 1 Day: Buzz on the Bridge

Details from the organizer, Mark:

Hey Everyone,
I am going to be doing 'Buzz on the Bridge' at Wallace Street bridge again this year as part of 100in1day Toronto on Saturday June 6th. I'm hoping to build off the success of last year's event, which was really great. I'd like to plan something similar to last year, but this year I am hoping to do more ground work early to get some other key partners on board and maybe do more advanced 'advertising'.
If anyone has any thoughts or ideas to contribute, I am all ears. I would like to set up a meeting soon for those who are interested in getting a bit more involved.
I have posted the event on the website at: and even got a twitter handle for the event @buzzonbridge
There is a 100in1day workshop downtown at MaRS on the evening of April 8 (Wednesday from 6-8) that I will likely attend to get the planning going, if anyone wants to join.
Thanks, bye for now,

More info at the Buzz on the Bridge listing at the 100in1day site.

Bloor GO/UP BBQ and Free Rides

You’re Invited

We want to show our thanks to the Bloor community!

On June 6, Metrolinx celebrates the launch of Union Pearson Express—the dedicated air-rail link that speeds travellers from Union Station downtown to Toronto Pearson, stopping at Bloor and Weston stations on the way. It’s a reliable 25 minute ride, with trains leaving every 15 minutes, 19 and a half hours per day.

Progress isn’t easy sometimes, and we know that the Bloor community has had to put up with our dust, our noise and inconveniences along the way.

So, on June 14, we want to thank you personally by offering a free ride on UP Express from 11 am to 3 pm. Please come down and see what we’ve built. There will be a BBQ, giveaways and lots of fun things to do for the whole family.

We’re working hard to build a city for the future, but we couldn’t have done it without you.

WHEN: 11 am to 3 pm, June 14
WHERE: The Bloor GO/UP Station Rail Path off Randolf Avenue
