@YouthDayToronto '12 took over the Live Green spots on Yonge and Dundas during their Sunday July 22 event The year round initiative strives to engage youth to develop skills, knowledge and networking. This event features recording artists Karl Wolf, Reema Major and Jordan Francis.
"YOUTH DAY is a non-profit operated FREE summer festival held at Yonge-Dundas Sq with a Yonge St closure from Queen St to Dundas St – expecting over 30,000 in 2012! YOUTH DAY features over 100 live music and dance performances over 10 hours; mostly by youth 14 – 24. Also included is a Youth Gallery showcasing art and photography, a Kids corner for kids under 12, a live Fashion Show, and much more! Yonge St, closed from Queen St to Dundas St, is lined with a variety of vendors and exhibitors – from food to jewelry to face painting. Headliner performances and celebrity support also add to YOUTH DAY’s attraction."
The group assists city services including Crime Stoppers and the Toronto Police Service while helping young volunteers and performers grow from new experiences. The square has a minute of silence for the innocent that have fallen, then render a salute.
