Westboro Fuse Festival Returns to Richmond Road!

Westboro Fuse Festival is coming back for another year of locally-sourced live music, fashion, food and fun for all ages! This year the event is being held on Richmond Rd between Golden Ave and McCrae Ave from August 18-19. With Fuse Fest right around the corner, we decided to take a look at some of the events you can expect (and enjoy) at this year's annual neighborhood block party.

Bushtukah Family Fun Relay and Tot Trot.

On August 18th, Bushtukah is bringing back the family races. The 100 metre dash is for children 4 years or under and followed by the Family Fun Relay. This is a great way to show that your family reigns supreme. Registration is required before the day of the event and space is limited to 40 teams. 

Local Music Festival Acts at Fuse.

FUSE Street Festival is bringing live music to the streets with artists from this years Jazz Fest and Bluesfest. Jam out to the sounds of the brother-sister duo, Mack and Ben, or just relax to Le Meow with their jazzy acoustics and classic covers. While you’re there, don’t forget to check out Kimberly Sunstrum and the 90’s inspired Graven.

Endless Entertainment on the Street

Find your way out of BMO's street-sized maze or try your hand at jousting as you balance on an inflatable pedestal in the Dovercourt Family Fun Zone's ultimate battle royal. Prepare to be amazed as magician Chris Pilsworth astonishes you with his feats of magic. 

Light Up the Night

When the sky turns dark FUSE Fest lights up the night! World-class fire dancer and weaver, Sophie Latreille, will be there stunning you with a fire-hot performance. Groove to Light Up Robot Jam in the evening and dance your brains out to Video DJ Steve Wilson. 

FUSE Fashion March

Be on the lookout because models are going to be turning Richmond Rd to a runway while showing off their looks on the street at FUSE Fest. The FUSE Fashion March brings inspired looks from all your favourite Westboro boutiques. See something you like? Don’t be shy, just ask the model about it.

Patios on the Street

Although there are plenty of patios in Westboro, this weekend will be different! You don't have to miss a single moment because the festival can be experienced even while you sip and snack street-side at restaurants all up and down Richmond Rd. 

This festival truly brings out the best of Westboro!
