Dawes Crossing Community Events

Enjoy free, family-friendly, and participatory activities at Dawes Crossing.

Dawes Crossing is a public art installation and community meeting place located at the intersection of Dawes Road and Victoria Park Avenue in Toronto. Created in 2012 by artist Noel Harding, Dawes Crossing references the human and ecological history of the area. The on-site solar panels generate a modest amount of revenue that supports electricity and Wifi, maintenance, and subsidizes community activities.
