Festivals in High Park

Dream in High Park – Throughout the summer, High Park becomes a stage for a Shakespearean production put on by the Canadian Stage Company. From June until September, Torontonians flock to watch a free (although a $20 suggested donation is requested) play in the High Park Amphitheatre reviving each year a different Shakespeare play. Recent years have seen adaptations of the old to bring a more updated version to the stage but none the less, High Park becomes the scene of yesteryear with this artistic event.

High Park Harvest Festival – In early October, High Park celebrates with a small but quaint High Park Harvest festival. Geared towards kids, events such as pumpkin carving, wagon rides, story time, nature crafts and activities are a celebration of the return of fall. Admission to High Park is free but a small fee or donation may apply to some activities. A fun event to get the kids out to High Park on a nice fall day.
