Streetfair Permit Categories

Pride Toronto’s Streetfair is broken up into three main categories: Community Fair, Marketplace and Food Vendors.  Prospective participants should familiarize themselves with the categories, below, and register themselves for the one that most closely matches their business activities. If you need help making this decision, kindly email [email protected] for more information.

Community Fair

Community Fair booths are open to community groups, registered charities and non-profits, trade unions, government agencies and departments, political parties, and student groups. Community Fair participants are not permitted to sell anything at their booths, and may not display the logos of any organization other than their own.

Marketplace

Marketplace booths are open to for-profit enterprises and organizations who wish to sell items at the Streetfair. These vendors are only permitted to sell the items listed in their application; they cannot sell food, beverages, or anything with the Pride logo. Marketplace vendors are further subdivided into sub-categories. Please read the descriptions below to ensure you are registering in the correct category.

Food Vendor

Food vendors sell food and beverages at their booths. Applicants will be approved based on a combination of first-come/first-served and curatorial decisions to ensure a wide variety of food across the festival site. A $500 security deposit is charged at the time of registration, and is refunded after the festival if terms and conditions are met by the vendor. Food vendors are further subdivided into sub-categories. Please read the descriptions below to ensure you are registering in the correct category.
