The Live Green Toronto Festival will take place on Yonge Street between Queen and Dundas on July 21 from 11:00 am – 8:00 pm. The area will be closed off to traffic and over 30,000 people are expected to attend. Proceeds will benefit Live Green Toronto, which is an organization supporting neighbourhood-based initiatives designed to promote a green lifestyle in the city.
There will be live musical entertainment, buskers, local food, a chance to swap books, movies, and music, and much more. The event will also feature both profit and non-profit organizations, who will be selling a variety of items which are environmentally friendly. Vendors can rent a 10 x 10 tented space for $275 or $75 for a 5 x 10 shared space for non-profit organizations. Toronto printing companies will probably be called upon to provide banner printing, sign printing, and other services necessary to draw attention to the tents. Non-profit organizations will also want to provide items such as brochures and flyers to spread the word about the work they do.
Sponsorships are also available for $5,000 and up. Sponsors will be given a prime location tent, get a mention in all advertising about the event, have a logo printed on the Live Green website, and be given the opportunity to speak to the crowd.
There is so much information out there about the green movement, so events such as the Live Green Toronto Festival help to educate the public on what is available and let them make informed decisions about their own lifestyle.
