Let’s cast out the cold and enliven the heart with the most diverse jam in Toronto. If you liked our summer Block Party, this is your party off the beaten path, in a new location, designed and specially made for our enjoyment pleasure. We originally were going to call this event ‘Inside the Block, Party’ because the location is wholly new and literally in the middle of an industrial block, wedged between two streets. Also, like the Block Party, it is totally set up by us, from sound, to decor design, to bar and food … start to finish. This one will be the tropical jam inside a cold-ish winter nite.

Special shouts to: Clay & Paper Theatre

Venue: Geary Lane, 360 Geary Ave.

Geary Lane is the edgy side of a downtown that is lacking in spaces. Step out of the ordinary and into a liminal party, in a different area … destination location!
