Details: Come to the ‘Heart of the City’ on Friday, June 8, 2018 for an all-day celebration hosted by Much and E! Host Tyrone Edwards, and featuring a headline set from rock darlings The New Pornographers. Everyone is invited!

Since opening in 2003, Yonge-Dundas Square (YDS) has been a community hub where Torontonians and visitors to the city from all walks of life gather. Whether it’s enjoying the serenity of the fountains, a rocking night out, or participating in an exciting range of free public events, the people light up the Square.

The Block Party begins at noon on Friday, June 8 with Toronto’s House of Virtual Reality taking street art to the next level with live demonstrations of virtual painting, using the square’s new digital signs as a canvas. YDS partner OUTFRONT Media will present surprise performances throughout the day, and treats, sweets and drinks will be available from the onsite food trucks.

The night will be bright with the presence of Much and E! host Tyrone Edwards, beginning at 6pm. The party continues all evening with live performances to be capped with a performance by iconic Canadian rockers The New Pornographers. Opening acts include Toronto’s indie-rock gentlemen Secret Broadcast and dreamy synth pop duo Featurette.

The 15th anniversary of YDS comes with some exciting programming announcements for the summer. Fan favourites like free movies and indie concerts will make a comeback, with some fresh new activities being added to the slate. And as always, wifi at YDS is free.
