A multicultural fall fair at St. Peter’s

September 16th, 2015 · No Comments

Hidden treasures, baked goods, food, crafts, books, CDs, and more all return to the fall fair this Oct. 3 (11 a.m. to 7 p.m.) and 4 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) at St. Peter’s Church (659 Markham St.).

This annual two-day event – part flea market and part culinary festival – attracts crowds who enjoy the multicultural tastes of the Annex, which have changed over the past century. Mass at the church was originally celebrated in three different languages each weekend, in order to accommodate the diverse ethnic groups attending the church.

The fall fair continues to honour this multicultural heritage with a wide array of food and items for sale, now mostly from the Portuguese, Italian, and Korean communities.
