Countdown to a laneway crawl!

We’re having a party in the laneway and you’re invited! If you’ve never been to a laneway crawl – you’re in for a treat. We have lots of free activities for all ages including a scavenger hunt, Zumba dancing, live music, pick-up street hockey and the longest hopscotch in the east end. We’re so excited to be collaborating with our friends East End Arts and the Laneway Project. Woo hoo! Mark your calendars, just over a week to go!

Drop us a line at if you can lend a hand or if you have a question about the Crawl. We need a few more volunteers and you’ll be working with an awesome group of neighbours.

  • On Thurs. Aug. 25 between 4-8pm we need help painting/ priming walls and doors to get ready for the murals. Meet in the lane and work any 2 hour shift.
  • On Aug. 28, help out by directing people through the lane or work on any activity team (two hour shifts).

A great big thank you to all the businesses and residents for lending us their garages and driveways to host the activities. We are so grateful to the amazing mural artists who will be beautifying the laneway with their work. Support from TD Foundation, the City of Toronto & StreetARToronto is gratefully acknowledged.

See you at the #DanforthEast Laneway Crawl!
