Hometown Tourist: Dundas West Fest 2013

On Saturday J and I headed to the first annual Dundas West Fest, a celebration of one of Toronto's coolest neighbourhoods. Stretching along Dundas from Ossington to Lansdowne, the festival aimed to show off the unique character of Little Portugal. The festival blended live music, delicious food, local shops and artisans with the traditional tastes and sounds of Portugal. J and I spent the afternoon wandering through artisan and vintage markets like By Hand, With Heart (curated by Alessandra Cardarelli of Carte Blanche Creations) and Diamonds & Rust, munching on yummy jalapeno and cheddar sausages from Grain, Curd & Bean, chatting with famed photographer George Pimentel, and enjoying a cold glass of Beau's in a beer garden housed in a garden center.

Here are a few pictures.
