The 2007 Junction Arts Festival is set to transform the Dundas West district like never before. Attracting 100,000 visitors annually, the festival will entice every member of the family with four days and nights of free fun and creativity.
The celebrations will take place along the one kilometre Dundas Street West footprint between Keele Street and Quebec Avenue featuring four distinct categories; the Visual Arts Exhibitions will open the festival on September 6 and 7, and Dundas will close down for pedestrian traffic only on Saturday, September 8 and Sunday, September 9 for the weekend festivities including The Live Stages, the Hands-On KIDZONE and the Green Village.
The Green Village: A bold new environmental venture
The Green Village (presented by Bombardier Inc.), a new initiative to the festival this year, will promote and inspire positive environmental change to all green-conscious visitors.
Starting at the Keele Street entrance and throughout the festival footprint, a number of environmental and community groups from around the city will present daily lectures, workshops and demonstrations on a wide range of environmental and sustainability topics. From bio-fuel and clean air initiatives to sustainable farming and recycling, the whole family will find information that is of interest to everyone.
