Willowdale Community Picnic – May 21

Join Councillor John Filion, the We Love Willowdale coalition and your friends and neighbours from the local community for a very special picnic event in Mel Lastman Square.

Monday, May 21 – 11-2 PM

This picnic will bring to a close the 26 Days of Music on Yonge, one day of music for every person injured or killed on April 23rd.

Though we continue to mourn those that were lost, let us also celebrate the thousands of acts of kindness and love in the wake of this tragedy, and remember some of the great public spaces to enjoy in our neighbourhoods.

We invite you to bring your folding chairs, blankets and picnic baskets to enjoy some time on the Square.  There will be a number of interactive arts activities suitable for all ages from 11 AM – 1 PM.

At 1 PM, we invite all to join us in the amphitheater for a musical performance celebrating the community.

Many thanks to the local faith groups, school parent councils, neighbourhood associations, cultural organizations and City of Toronto staff that have joined forces to make this event happen.

For more information, or to share with friends and neighbours, you can view the event on Facebook.

We hope you can join us!
