In light of the direction of the City of Toronto and Toronto Public Health that no large-scale public gatherings will be permitted during the month of June 2020, The 519 will not be hosting Green Space Festival 2020 during the originally planned dates of June 24 to 28, 2020.
While this is disappointing news to share, we are committed to being responsible to our collective efforts to promote public health and safety. As a community centre, we remain on the frontlines every day during the COVID-19 public health crisis responding to our community and neighbourhood’s needs. You can find out more about our work during this time on our website.
We are continuing to work with the City, and our funders and partners, to examine alternate dates and options for what is our largest annual fundraising event that raises critical funds for programs and services that support vulnerable communities. We will be sharing updates on Festival planning in the near future.
Stay safe, and be well.
The Green Space Festival, The 519's biggest fundraising event of the year, has been cancelled due to #COVID19.
The 519 is doing everything we can to respond to the rapidly rising needs of LGBTQ2S communities and our neighbourhood. Our community-based response to the pandemic does not have secure funding and we need your help.
