To celebrate the opening of your new Queens Quay, we’re planning a ribbon cutting ceremony unlike any other – and we need your help to make it happen. The festivities kick off Friday, June 19, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. and we want to celebrate this momentous occasion with the entire waterfront community. This is our thank you for your dedication, patience and support during the design and construction of the street.
To make this ceremony truly unforgettable, we'll need the help of several hundred volunteers. We don’t want to spoil the surprise but we will say this:
Volunteers should be ready and willing to do things like:
- Wave a flag
- Follow a drum line
- Work together with your fellow community members
If you’d like to help us with this unique ribbon cutting and be a part of the opening ceremony, please sign up online and we’ll contact you directly to fill you in on the secret
Don’t forget to share this with your friends, family and neighbours and help us spread the word about our event and open call for volunteers. This is your event!
See you on the waterfront!
Our festivities will also kick off the start of the Redpath Waterfront Festival and we encourage everyone to stick around to enjoy this weekend-long celebration.
Toronto’s Main Waterfront Street: Queens Quay
The revitalization of Queens Quay is one of Waterfront Toronto’s most important and transformative projects. Once uninviting, Toronto’s main waterfront street will be a lasting legacy for the city, a grand civic meeting place and a gateway to the lake. Once opened, the street will provide a more welcoming, more beautiful and more enjoyable space for residents and visitors alike.
