The Taste of the Danforth is bigger than ever this year.

In the 21st annual event, over 1.5 million people are expected to make their way to Toronto’s Greek Town to take in the music, culture and of course, the food.

Adreas Lagos is a chef that was flown in from Greece by Krinos to prepare modern Greek food for the festival. “I didn’t know there was this wonderful festival in Toronto… it’s very important for the people that live here... to see how special the food is,” he said.

The Taste of the Danforth will also have appearances from some the Toronto Maple Leafs, Raptors and Argos.

Festival organizer Howard Lichtman said, in addition, this year will include new activities like a stunt show and a dress-up station for kids. One tranditional aspect of the event is that all profits go to charity. 

"When youre coming here and spening money you're helping the local entrepreneurs... and you're also helping the community," he said.

Over the years, they've donated close to $2 million to the Toronto East General Hospital.
