1. Experience the flavours of the East with Mississauga’s South Asian food festival
For a three-day period this week, your tastebuds will have the chance to be transported thousands of kilometres away from Toronto and experience all the beautiful flavours South Asia has to offer.
Taking place over the weekend at Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga, the festival is hosted by Night Markt Toronto in conjunction with Tourism Mississauga BMO, Shan and Tesla. The event will be home to about 15 food trucks for the three days, with some of the more popular attendees being Rick’s Good Eats and Chachu’s. Shan, whose primary focus is on spices, will also be giving away full-sized products to guests to take home and make their own South Asian dishes.
As for entertainment, joining in on the celebration will be folklore dancers, bringing popular Bollywood music to the people of Mississauga. The event will take place from 4 p.m. to midnight on Friday, 2 p.m. to midnight on Saturday and 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday.
The all-weekend pass for the festival is available free of charge and can be reserved on Night Market Toronto’s website.
