Summerlicious, one of Toronto’s most popular foodie events, is back again from August 12 to 28 in the city after a gap of two years. The event was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19 pandemic. The festival is much awaited by Torontonians to celebrate the city’s diverse culinary skills with set menus and price points.

This year’s summerlicious festival program aims to support the upswing and recovery of Toronto’s restaurants while providing the desirable experiences and delicious food as expected by the customers.
Summerlicious will be organised in a way to make it effortless for restaurants to participate and to encourage more Toronto residents to dine-in and enjoy great deals on lots of appetizing meals. The program has been “renewed” to help the local food and other industry to grow and generate desired revenue while encouraging people’s belief that they can choose to enjoy patio and indoor dining again.

This year a number of changes have been made to make it easier for the restaurants to participate in the event of summerlicious which included an online application process. The restaurants will also have significant flexibility to set menus and price points.

When Toronto Mayor John Tory announced this festival in April his aim was to support business owners and restaurants who have been hard hit by the pandemic and find new and innovative ways to grow through these programs like summerlicious.
