Join us for a Social Evening on the evening of August 9th!

This will be a fun evening to celebrate Toronto’s culture in a historic location at the Railroad Roundhouse, which is now the home of Steam Whistle Brewery. This is located just behind the CN tower, offering unique views of downtown Toronto from this special location.

The evening will showcase food from the neighbourhoods of Toronto, which highlights our amazing diversity and culture in this city.  This is an opportunity to learn about the Steam Whistle Brewery and its historic setting at the Roundhouse, a pivotal site for repairing railway engines that crossed Canada from coast to coast. We will be playing great Canadian music for listening and dancing, along with having a photo booth to record your memories at this fun event!
