Summer Saturdays at the Moss Park Market

From the first Saturday in June until the last Saturday in September, Building Roots works with a variety of local partners and artists to animate the public space outside the Moss Park Market. 

It’s very important to us to support a variety of mediums while empowering these local artists. Summer Saturdays have proven success in increasing the use of public space and community events, providing a safe space for neighbours to connect while exploring the arts. 

Activities include the Moss Park Fun Zone (featuring free giveaways & fun for kids and youth), arts & crafts, live music, snacks, drinks, and more!  

In 2021 we introduced sports and recreation equipment sign-outs, which we will expand in 2022. 

In 2022, you can also expect the return of our 3rd annual Café Caribbean, in collaboration with JamaicanEats Magazine.

Subscribe to our bi-weekly Outreach Newsletter to stay updated as more details for 2022 are announced.

If you have any questions, concerns or inquiries – we welcome you to reach out to info@buildingroots.ca

We also very much encourage you to reach out if you feel you have contributions or ideas that you feel would work with Summer Saturdays!

We would like to give a special thanks to the community partners, sponsors, supporters and wide-range of creatives who make these summer animations possible. In particular, Danielle Rebelle Productions, who has assisted with booking talent.
