Last minute tickets...?

Can you buy tickets at the gate?
As it stands right now, yes you can, but if advance tickets sell out, then there will NOT be tickets available at the gate. Why not ensure your entry, save five bucks and get them in advance? (That's more money to spend on your drink/food vouchers while you're at the event!) To get your tickets in advance go to www.consciousfoodfestival.ca

Who started the Festival?

Scott Rondeau and Emma Brown of the Power Juncture Corporation founded the Conscious Food Festival. They are also the founders of the Toronto Wine and Spirit Festival (June 19 & 20, 2009 – Distillery District). Scott Rondeau is also the co-founder of Toronto’s Festival of Beer, so he is well versed with running festivals and is excited to reunite with Fort York National Historic Site on this new event.

Location, location, location...

The Conscious Food Festival is being held at Fort York National
Historic Site. This is an outdoor venue in the heart of downtown Toronto, located near Bathurst and Lakeshore. But once you are onsite you will forget that a bustling city surrounds you. Although there will be plenty of sheltered tent space onsite, please come prepared for the elements. The Festival will take place rain or shine! See the Location Page on our website www.consciousfoodfestival.ca for map and directions.

What about bringing the family?

This is an all ages event so bring the family. There will be some lincensed areas where alcohol will be served - these areas will only be accessible to those 19 years of age and over. If you plan on consuming alcohol, please bring your I.D. as anyone who appears to be under the age of 30 will be asked for proof of age.

Live Passionately, Drink Responsibly!

All staff at the Conscious Food Festival serving alcoholic beverages must be "Smart Serve" certified. If you plan on drinking while at the show, please leave your car at home and enjoy responsibly.

More than just admission....

Your ticket to the Conscious Food Festival gets you in the door, but you ALSO receive 5 drink/food vouchers to get you started so no need to dip into your pockets just yet!

Location, location, location!

The Conscious Food Festival is held on the grounds of Fort York National Historic Site. Fort York is a beautiful outdoor venue and is located in the heart of downtown Toronto and totally TTC accessible. Once you are there you will forget that the bustling city surrounds you.

Located at 100 Garrison Rd. (near the Canadian National Exhibition), Fort York National Historic Site is easily accessible by the TTC and parking is available within walking distance.

Take the 511 streetcar south from Bathurst subway station. Get off at Fort York Blvd and walk west around the site to the West gate. The 504 King street car also hits Bathurst and the Queen Streetcar will also get you to Bathurst St. Walk south on Bathurst (toward the lake), turn right at Fort York Blvd and walk west around the site to the West gate.

Can't wait to see you there, bring your appetites!
