The Taste of Lawrence, an international food and cultural festival, is an annual summer affair in Toronto, Canada. This three-day festival attracts thousands of people, both young and old, who can enjoy diverse entertainments, taste multicultural food items and buy clothes and crafts.
Held on Lawrence Avenue East portion between Birchmount Road and Warden Avenue, this festival, planned by the then city councilor Michael Thompson of Scarborough, had its debut in 2004. Since then it has evolved into a large showpiece.
The Taste of Lawrence festival brings the local communities together into a unique bond. This year's festival came to an end yesterday, July 8.
