Our final free concert of the season takes place on Saturday September 29th from 1 to 3pm at the stage area in Suydam Park (Spadina Rd. at Coulson Ave.) and will feature local musicians Tamar Ilana, Demetri Petsalakis, and Haghmeh Farahmand. Grab a snack and a coffee in the Village and join us in the park. Not to be missed! (Weather permitting)
Unfortunately, the on-street public parklet that had been planned for installation on Spadina Rd. this summer has had to be postponed to spring/summer 2019.
We'll post an update as soon as possible in the new year.
Feature Exhibition in the 2018 Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival
May 2 - June 29, 2018
Experience the Magic of Darkroom & Alternative Analogue Photography!
Red Light is an extravagant visual journey surveying the richness of photographic techniques from the pre-digital era. Highlighting over 300 pieces by photographers from across the globe, working in darkroom hand printed photography, this landmark exhibition shines a light on the incredible energy, depth, and magic of manual photographic development.
Following two successful concert events last year, the BIA will again be hosting some free live acoustic musical performances at the small public stage in Suydam Park - Spadina Rd. at Coulson Ave.
The main goal of the FHV BIA streetscape masterplan has been to make the village an even more appealing place to spend time. We've been working towards this by focussing on projects that improve walkability and bikeability, expanding and improving the public realm, adding more greenspace and parking, and generally aiming to make the Village more ‘villagey’. So, in addition to our new benches and planters, the BIA, in partnership with the City, will be adding a seasonal, on-street public parklet in the centre of the Village on the east side of Spadina Rd. just north of Lonsdale.
We all know that the Village is a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by, and most would agree that the time has come for our well-used street furniture to be replaced.
