Exhibition Place Brings the Community Together with Your Yard Series

 Exhibition Place, Canada’s premier destination for events and entertainment, is excited to announce the launch of its newest summer event series, the Your Yard Series. This exciting event lineup promises to bring together the Toronto community with a series of free or low-cost community events, activities and unique experiences for all ages and interests.

“Community is at the heart of everything we do at Exhibition Place, and we’re thrilled to launch the Your Yard series and give back to members of our community with carefully curated experiences to enjoy throughout the summer,” said Don Boyle, CEO of Exhibition Place. “Whether you’re interested in exploring our historic sites, learning about urban design, or immersing yourself in the vibrant cultural events we have planned, we’re looking forward to providing an exceptional experience for all joining us at Exhibition Place this summer.”

The series kicks off with the annual Jane’s Walk on May 4, where curious minds can embark on guided walking tours to explore the many iconic buildings in and around Exhibition Place.  Guests can also look forward to several free recurring events including some relaxation and zen-discovery with Yoga in the Park in June and July, and Music in the Park, featuring a diverse lineup of emerging and established Toronto musicians at Centennial Park Wednesdays in July.

The Your Yard Series also encourages members of the community to get their creative juices flowing with several interactive workshops. From exploring the rich history and beauty of Exhibition Place’s architectural gems with an Urban Sketching class, to exploring the fascinating world of bees at an Urban Beekeeping workshop on the roof of the Enercare Centre, or delving deep into Greek mythology at a Garden of the Greek Gods storytelling event, there’s something to suit all interests and levels.

To cap off the summer, Exhibition Place will be hosting a Community BBQ in September, open to all to enjoy delicious bites and take in the beautiful surroundings of the 192-acre site with other members of the community as a last hurrah before the cooler months roll in.
