What's On: A peace parade in the city and more to check out

A peace parade aiming to showcase the diverse cultures that make up this city is just one of the many events worth checking out this weekend:

Peace is Possible Parade/White Noise
July 25 - July 26
Children's Peace Theatre

Children who participated in Children Peace Theatre's annual free summer art program will lead a Peace is Possible parade in Toronto's east end. The parade will start at Shoppers World on Danforth Ave at 11 AM. Children attending this event will get a chance to check out a matinee/dress rehearsal performance of White Noise, an original play looking at youth and media literacy in a digital age. A gala presentation of White Noise will take place on Saturday.

For more information, check out the Children's Peace Theatre website.

Figment Toronto
July 26 - July 27
Olympic Island

FIGMENT Toronto returns for their second annual free participatory art event. For one weekend Olympic Island transforms into a large scale, collaborative artwork - and then it's gone! As always, the question FIGMENT asks is, "What Are You Bringing?" FIGMENT provides the space; you provide the spark. Whether you want to submit a project, volunteer at the event, or just come out to the Island to release your inner child and pARTicipate, YOU make the magic happen!

Waterfront Night Market

Taste of Toronto
July 24 - July 27
Fort York

Fort York will be transformed into a foodie wonderland for four days of summer eating, drinking and entertainment. 14 of the city's latest, greatest and hottest restaurants will be dishing up their finest in a bar none alfresco gourmet feast. Top that off with over 50 producers of the best food, beverages and premium brands providing a bountiful food market, and you have the best culinary festival of the year!

Pedestrian Sundays
July 27
Kensington Market

Pedestrian Sundays are homemade - from the signs, to the music, to the giant piƱatas, it's the human touch that sets these apart from other street festivals. Entertainers play for love not money; from the metal band of the baker's kid, to the jazz of the world renowned sax-playing neighbour.

For more information, check out the Pedestrian Sundays website.

In Concert: Delhi2Dublin
July 25
Mel Lastman Square

Delhi2Dublin is the main musical act closing out the fifth annual Cultura Festival with their crazy-cool mishmash of Celtic tunes and Bhangra beats.
