Corso Italia

Corso Italia Festival

What an amazing Canada Day weekend, the weather was superb and the people were out in numbers on one of the busiest weekends of the summer. I had an awesome time performing for this years 14th Annual Corso Italia Festival. The festival is a wonderful opportunity for the whole family to experience the food and culture of Toronto’s own Corso Italia on St. Clair.

Over 30 bands/musicians perform live on street corners, patios and balconies.
Lined up along the street as well you’ll find vendors, games and fun for all.
In addition, food and beverage retailers offer a mouth-watering selection of tastes and flavours.
Corso Italia boasts a variety of superb stores and services,including bakeries, book stores, fashion boutiques,
food markets, beauty salons, gift shops, jewellery stores and more.

This year’s line up saw the likes of some great acts like: Cobra Kings, Yiannis Kapoulas, Claudio Santaluce, Sambacana, Inner Soul, Puente del Diablo, Mississauga Big Band, Grupo Rey, Havana Express, Toronto All Star Big Band, Imbayakunas, Silver Elvis, Magic Matt and Johnny Scat.

Thank you to the wonderful festival organizers, Lido, Fernando and Pat who work tirelessly with so much passion along with the help of the following sponsors: Panoram Italia, TTC, Corso Italia, Yelp, CIRV Radio, Sol Melia Hotels.
