From July 29 to October 31, enjoy live music with the City of Toronto’s Amplified Live Music on Patios program. The pilot program allows amplified live music on patios to add energy and vitality to participating main streets and help local artists, who have been among the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. The participating wards include Beaches-East York, Toronto-Danforth and Davenport. The amplified live music will be permitted within the following scheduled times:

  • Thursdays and Fridays, 5 to 10 p.m.
  • Saturdays, noon to 10 p.m.
  • Sundays, noon to 6 p.m.

Restaurants and business improvement areas (BIAs) are programming music on CaféTO main street patios and parklets located in the three pilot wards. For upcoming parklet performances, contact the participating BIAs:
