Go inside the giant goodbye party Toronto is throwing for Honest Ed's
Before the iconic building comes down, artists are taking it over
Established in 1948, the legendary department store Honest Ed's closed its doors last year. But before the iconic building makes way for a brand new rental community, the Centre for Social Innovation is throwing a giant farewell celebration in the 160,000 square foot building this weekend.
With over 100 artists participating in the celebration, the four-day event called "An Honest Farewell" includes performances, installations, workshops, panel discussions and more — all inspired by Honest Ed's spirit of inclusivity.
In this video, we give you an inside look at this once-in-a-lifetime celebration — a fitting farewell to Toronto's beloved retailer.
