Standing in the heart of Cabbagetown is like standing at the centre of Canada. For within eyesight you will find a microcosm of everything that defines the country from our history to the multiplicity of sounds and sights. You feel like you’re part of a neighbourhood and not just a tourist who has wandered into a prefabricated ”tourist experience.” Cabbagetown’s current boundaries are now generally accepted as Gerrard Street to the south, Wellesley Street to the north, Sherbourne Street to the west and the Don River to the east. Come see why Cabbagetown is known as “a small town in the heart of a big city.” The Cabbagetown BIA was established in 1982.
Annual events include the Forsythia Festival in May and the Festival of the Arts in September.
