    We’re reaching peak summer vibes here in Toronto, making it the perfect time for a high-energy salsa festival right on the beach. Toronto’s Salsa on the Beach kicks off this Saturday and it’ll be a celebration full of music, dance, and togetherness.

    The free event will run from the afternoon to the evening on both Saturday and Sunday, with a full lineup of live performances, dance performances, and lessons.

    You’ll get to learn how to dance salsa and bachata while listening to the sounds of DJs and Latin bands.

    Salsa on the Beach will be held at Woodbine Park right next to the boardwalk, so you can hit the beach for some sun-tanning and volleyball in between songs.
