2019 Toronto Dragon Festival

The second annual Dragon Festival was held in Nathan Phillips Square September 6-8, 2019 with over 80 booths and tens of thousands of visitors. Originally a Chinese community event, the city has joined in celebrating Chinese heritage and other cultures. "Welcoming all ages who love dragons, foods, arts, cultures, or just simply being a proud Canadian."

Performers include Indian Classical Odissi dancer Shreya Chakraborty, Polish-Canadian soprano Karoline Podolak, Quebec acrobat Dominic Lacasse and many more.

"Partially funded and supported by the Government of Canada, 2019 TDF is proudly hosted by the Canadian Association of Chinese Performing Arts (CACPA). Dazzling shows of Chinese traditional culture brought Canadians with all backgrounds together. The Festival has presented world-famous Sichuan Face Mask Changing and martial arts, not to mention many inspiring folk arts such as sugar paintings, paper-cutting, and more."
