Toronto • June 19-23, 2019
We’ve come a long way. In 2008, we threw a single, one-of-a-kind party no one had heard of before, called Starry Night. But now, 10 years later, Green Space Festival has blossomed into a full-fledged, multi-day music festival, featuring world-class DJs, electronic and house legends, drag queen royalty and more. Volunteers, donors, partners, performers and thousands of festival goers come together every year to celebrate both the diversity of our community and the love that brings us together.
Community is the festival’s reason for being: 100% of all proceeds generated from Green Space Festival are directed into funding the essential programs and services of The 519, the most prominent LGBTQ+ community centre in Canada. Since our humble beginnings, over $2.5 million has been raised for The 519. And it certainly took a community to pull it off: Green Space Festival has been made possible with the help of 3,400 volunteers, has attracted over 200,000 visitors from around the world, and has invited 650 local and international performers to hit the stage.
To celebrate 10 years of partying and giving back, we’re pulling out all the stops: only the best DJs, drag queens and performers will do. It’s 10s across the board, guaranteed. Catch our five legendary parties in one central location; folks looking for a good time will always know to check us out at Barbara Hall Park.
We hope you’ll enjoy the festivities, and we want to thank you for celebrating with us. And remember to party for a cause, squirrel friends — your donations have kept our community shining bright for 10 years. Here’s to 10 more!
