Every July for 25 years, TD Sunfest has transformed downtown London, Ontario’s beautiful Victoria Park into a unique celebration of global culture. (In 2020 and 2021, it successfully pivoted to a virtual format). Selected by Songlines Magazine (UK) as one of the top overseas music festivals, this free event attracts some 220,000 visitors of all ages and cultures for four days of exhilarating, inclusive and diverse world music, dance, crafts, cuisine, and visual art from Canada and abroad.
Each year, 35+ top world music and jazz ensembles, chosen from extensive annual field work conducted at music expos on five continents perform at this magical, soulful community event.
“TD Sunfest is my favorite festival of the year [and] easily the city’s most popular festival [which has become] a destination for world-class performers… The best part, for me, is that TD Sunfest draws an audience – often entire families – from across London’s cultural mosaic to one location, an opportunity for barriers to fall and understanding to rise. If you’ve never been, you’re not just missing out on the music, you’re missing out on meeting your newest neighbour.”Joe Belanger, Entertainment Reporter, The London Free Press
