The 519 in Toronto has announced the lineup of the 9th annual Green Space Festival. Held during the final weekend of Pride Toronto, the Green Space Festival is a four day, six event fundraising festival and celebration featuring an expansive lineup of performers and DJs. From June 22 – June 25, 2017, Green Space Festival will have everyone dancing and feeling proud this Pride Toronto season!
The 519, Canada’s largest LGBT community center, is a Toronto city agency in downtown serving over 250,000 people annually.

A main fundraiser for The 519, Green Space Festival has become a not-to-be-missed festival at the end of Toronto’s Pride festivities.
