A stretch of King St will be transformed with musical performances, board games and art installations next month.
Organizers with the Toronto International Festival have released more details about what they have dubbed a "pedestrian promenade" on King St . King St will be out of bounds to cars between University Ave and Peter St during TIFF's first few days, September 4-7.
Visitors will be able to check out art installations, tickle the ivories on a public piano, hear a poetry performance, grab a bite at a food truck or challenge a friend to a board or Canadian film trivia game. There will be nightly musical performances by Canadian acts including Rich Aucoin, Jason Collett, Maylee Todd, Diana, BADBADNOTGOOD and Reuben And The Dark.
And if the TIFF scene proves to be too much to take, there will be a film fest therapist on King St willing to listen to your problems and offer "a prescription for happiness".
