Entertainment, Environment & Art

Hey London..what a great weekend we’ve got coming up with the Artfusion Festival and Car Free Sunday  and City Mom has all the details:

Artfusion Festival – Sept. 25th & 26th
Featuring an outdoor art gallery with a 4600  sq. ft.  live art mural on an exterior wall.  Located at 196 Dundas Street with parking  located off Clarence and Queen Street.  The event will also feature artists spray-painting the murals, live music, a film screening and lots of food vendors. The festival runs from 12pm – 11pm each day.

Car Free Sunday – Sept. 26th
This exciting event takes place on Dundas Street between Wellington and Ridout and involves NO CARS! (Sorry for stating the obvious.) This event coincides with the Artfusion Festival and will include fun events for children such as face painting & sidewalk chalking. Running between 12pm and 4pm the idea is to allow Londoners the opportunity to use the street for something other than driving.   This is the second time that this event will take place in London and attracted over 7,000 pedestrians last April. 

Check out this video from the last Car Free event of the Forest City Flash Mob where Dundas Street was turned into a giant dance floor.

These are two great events for London and  I hope to see you out!
