Taste of Toronto Festival

Toronto, prepare yourselves for The World’s Greatest Restaurant Festival! The second annual Taste of Toronto is returning to Fort York from July 2nd – 5th. The grounds will be transformed into a food paradise, consisting of beautiful summer eating, drinking, and lots of entertainment.  Let us tell you right now, this is definitely the must-do food festival in Toronto this summer.


Get ready to experience the city’s hottest restaurants all in one place, offering a feast of their finest and most delectable dishes. With over 70 producers of the best foods and beverages in Toronto, there is no wonder that this will be the culinary festival of the year.


We can’t wait to get our hands on some of Toronto’s best dishes from the likes of Richmond Station, Patria, Byblos and Drake Hotel, just to name a few. As well, we’re also excited to see some new faces to the Festival such as R & D, Morimoto and Little Sister.


American Express is once again one of the official sponsors of Taste of Toronto. Cardmembers will be granted access to the American Express Priority Line and a dedicated VIP Fast Track line. As well, there will be an American Express Lounge for all Cardmembers (along with their guest), where they can enjoy complimentary drinks and snacks, wine tasting, tea sampling, cheese tasting, and much more. Make your Taste of Toronto experience that much better by checking out the lounge and taking advantage of all the perks!
