Find your summer vibe – hot dancing shoes and cool Sunfest Cerveza beer are a must — during the landmark 25th edition of TD Sunfest ’19, Canada’s premier celebration of world cultures taking place July 4-7. Voted one of the best overseas music festivals by the UK’s prestigious Songlines Magazine, as well as a Top 100 event by Festivals & Events Ontario, TD Sunfest transfigures nearby London, Ontario’s beautiful Victoria Park into a culturally diverse jewel, where 40 outstanding world music and jazz groups from all corners of the planet – Brazil to Reunion Island – entertain on five stages.

Premier Canadian acts include Quebec’s AfrotroniX, The Brooks and Le Vent du Nord. 

And with more than 250 exhibitors, this beloved free-admission event (more than 225,000 happy visitors served each summer) will whet festivalgoers’ appetites for scrumptious global cuisine, unique crafts and visual art.

DoubleTree by Hilton London is the official hotel for TD Sunfest. A four-star facility, it is located only three blocks from the festival site. Also close by are the Delta London Armouries Hotel, Marriott Inn, Holiday Inn and The Park Hotel.

London Free Press Entertainment Reporter Joe Belanger raves, “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. It also has the largest and most unusual collection of arts and crafts and food vendors of any London festival.”

Victoria Park opens daily at 11 a.m., with opening ceremonies set for Thursday, July 4 at 6:45 p.m. Music will be featured from 6 to 11 p.m. Thursday, and 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday through Sunday. For more information, please visit www.sunfest.on.ca.
