Summer Saturdays at the Moss Park Market

On select Saturdays in June through 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 successful in providing a safe space for neighbours to connect while exploring the arts. 

Activities include the Moss Park Fun Zone (featuring free giveaways and 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 have expanded in 2022. 

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

We also encourage you to reach out if 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 a wide-range of creatives who make these summer animations possible. In particular, Danielle Rebelle Productions, who has assisted with booking talent.
