ALL WEEKEND
29th Annual Vegetarian Festival - Harbourfront CentreBasic Info
- Saturday 12-9pm
- Sunday 12-7pm
- Background: festival FB page
- Time commitment/Role: spend anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours wandering around the festival collecting signatures for the NoJetsTO petition and handing out postcards to interested folks.
- The Toronto Vegetarian Festival is the largest in North America - over 40,000 people in attendance last year!
- This is a huge event, right on the waterfront! An amazing opportunity to collect signatures.
- What's more, after you're done petitioning you can check out the festival - it's FREE and full of food, cooking demos, speakers, samples, and fun (I attend every year).
- Please be sure to contact Jess if you will be at this event
2nd Annual EcoParadeBasic Info
- Trinity Bellwoods Park (start) to Harbourfront Centre (end) 10am-1pm
- Background: event website
- Time commitment: the entire event is about 3 hours, including the march, but you could just show up at the beginning if you are pressed for time.
- Role: you will mingle with progressive minded folks and collect signatures, hand out postcards/buttons.
- Ideally, we should be in the parade (Jess be there!). The vibe of this parade will be similar to Pride - lots of excitement, happy people and smiling faces! They even suggest that folks dress up in costumes (but you don't have to).
- It's an opportunity to let loose while also offering valuable support to NoJetsTO by collecting signatures and gaining exposure.
Liberty Street Farmer's MarketBasic Info
- Hanna and Liberty Street 10am-1pm, click here for a map
- We will have our own table at the northern end of the market
- Time commitment/role: whatever you can manage;spend your time collecting signatures, handing out postcards and talking to the public about NoJetsTO,
Cabbagetown FestivalBasic Info

- Time Commitment/Role: Give NoJetsTO a presence at the festival. Hand out postcards, collect signatures.
- Similar to the Vegetarian Fest, this festival will be full of fun things for you to do after you're finished spreading NoJetsTO information.
- Porter Airlines will be at the event, collecting signatures for their dangerous expansion plans and spreading their propaganda. We need to counter this.
