TASTE OF INDIA FOOD FESTIVAL, Toronto, ON Canada

“YOU HAVE AROUND 10,000 TASTEBUDS, KILL THEM ALL” @ Taste Of India Food North Americas largest Indian Food Festival. Aug 4, 2019.

About this Event

A lot of events deliver on one or two of the senses, but none can deliver on all five like Taste Of India Food Festival can. Visually you’ll be treated to colour and diversity; interactive street performers and activities that allow you to touch the fun; you’ll hear amazing music; your taste buds will be delighted by amazing flavours, and you’ll be seduced by all the gorgeous smells of the delicious street food.

Taste Of India Food Festival has been conceptualized as something completely unique. Street food culture is a relatively fresh idea in Canada and is one that can make significant contribution to the economic, social and environmental fabric of the country.

It is an event where producers, manufacturers, food vendors and restaurants can showcase their products and can interact, share, communicate with the patrons one on one.

Taste of India Food Festival will bring different communities together through the common love that is food.
