|Every year in September, Toronto almost bursts at the seams with local festivals – The Ukrainian Fest in Bloor Village, The Polish Festival on Roncesvalles, and the CabbageTown Fest in CabbageTown. This year I got to the CabbageÂ Town fest and what a surpise. CabbageTown was the Irish, English and scattering of Italian and Spanish part of town.

There were Chilean and Peruvian troubadours and folk bands to entertain as you walked and shopped among the wares. And if you wanted a pint there were not a few pubs to slake your thirst. And as for dining – lets say I had the best Aloo Gobi with Chapati I have had in a long time at the Cabbage Town Fest.
