Toronto Taste of Little Italy 2024

This popular, annual neighbourhood street party brings together thousands of people to enjoy the culture and cuisine of Italy while squeezed into College Street from Bathurst to Shaw Streets. This year's shindig ran from Friday, June 14 to Sunday, June 16 with the amusement rides to the west and the main stage to the east.

There was plenty of live entertainment planned throughout the three day weekend event but Saturday, June 15 the biggest draw was the Euro Cup 2024 soccer tournament game as Italy took on Albania. Things were tense at the beginning after Italy gave up a goal at 23 seconds before Italy finally won the game 2-1. The beer tent and main stage with the soccer game on the big screen is shown in the photo at top.
