Ten years ago, a local mom on parental leave joined the newly-formed DECA Board with an idea about a community arts fair in East Lynn Park. It was an incredible event that year (2009), and we are so proud to announce the details of the upcoming 10th Annual Danforth East Community Arts Fair #decaf18!
Volunteers have been working all year to bring this special event our neighbourhood, Enjoy local art, food, live music, kids’ activities, and art demonstrations from students at local art schools. Admission is free! Make sure to invite your friends from outside of our ‘hood to make them understand just how awesome this neighbourhood is.
