Torontonian’s Favourite Street Party, Toronto Dragon Festival Returns this September at Nathan Phillips Square!

Dragons, drums, acrobatics, King Fu and much more. Canadian Association of Chinese Performing Arts is very excited to announce the 2nd Toronto Dragon Festival will come back to the heart of Toronto at Nathan Phillips Square from September 6 to 8 this year.

Admission is absolutely FREE!

The inaugural Toronto Dragon Festival wowed thousands of Torontonians and travellers last summer. Dazzling shows of Chinese traditional culture brought people from different communities. The whole day non-stop live performances welcomed more than 40 Chinese and Canadian performing arts groups. There were about 80 food and ethnical booths that interacted with more than 20,000 visitors. Our show has presented world-famous Sichuan Face Mask Changing and Chinese martial arts, not to mention inspiring Chinese traditional folk arts such as sugar paintings, paper-cutting, and mouth-watering Chinese and Asian specialty foods. 

This year, the Square will turn into dragon’s playground with lots of fascinating decorations, a mighty inflatable dragon head, gigantic dragon lantern, dragon gates, and many more dragon-manias.
