Yonge-Dundas Square Open for Events

Yonge-Dundas Square (YDS), an outdoor public and event space in downtown Toronto, is accepting applications for 2022 events.

Located at the intersection of Yonge Street and Dundas Street, the square is a popular event venue dubbed the “Times Square of Canada” that accommodates gatherings of various sizes and types including marketing activations, community celebrations, concerts, receptions, and promotions.

With pandemic-related measures in place such as proof of vaccination and changes to restrictions, it is anticipated that the local economy will be booming at YDS this coming year.  Applicants are urged to get their applications in early and can do so through the Yonge-Dundas Square website.

The Square is praised for its diversity and capability to accommodate a large range of event requirements and desired attractions.  Since then, it has become the site of such things as outdoor summer movie screenings, jam-packed concerts (many of which are free of charge), and fantastic festivals of all varieties and sizes held for all age groups.

Two rows of 10 fountains line the pathway at Yonge-Dundas Square, accentuating the beauty that surrounds it like major landmarks including the Toronto Eaton Center, Little Canada, the CityTv Building, and the Ed Mirvish Theatre.

The Square contains continuously illuminated large billboard screens that sport art exhibits, community messaging, as well as content utilized to enhance events that are held at the scene. Take a virtual stroll through the square with their new 360 Video.
