Pride Toronto is shutting down traffic and opening up inhibitions for its annual Streetfair, which sprawls through the Church-Wellesley Village this weekend. Thousands of brawny biceps, glistening glutes, and bouncy bosoms will be on display as LGBTQ+ revelers, allies and admirers traverse the sweaty streets in search of life, love and the pursuit of
happiness salacious selfie opps.
The Pride Streetfair provides eye candy and dizzying distractions while thousands take turns waiting in 3-hour-long lines to get into patios, parties and porta potties. Community organizations, gayer-than-gay apparel and the finest dildos that you ever did see are all ready to make your acquaintance during the pedestrian-only fest.
But we’ll gladly trade a coveted stool at O’Grady’s to grab a couple cold tall boys from the lick-beau at Maple Leaf Gardens before visiting the best part of the Pride Toronto Streetfair: the vendor vittles lining Rainbow Road.
Pride Toronto exclusively shared their Streetfair food lineup with Vv Magazine, and there’s a boss-load of bites to tickle your tastebuds from the time the barricades rise Friday evening.
Big brands like Loblaws, Starbucks, Ben & Jerry’s and Lucky Charms will show their pride while luring you ever further into the consumer rabbit hole. But it’s the bevy of local food purveyors that’s the real wonderland when it comes to the Pride Toronto Streetfair. Here are our top 10 picks for the must-eat foods at Pride Toronto.
Need a hot, heavy meat injection? Burrito Boyz has ‘em in spades – girthsome and safely wrapped, of course.
Say a very gay “F*ck you!” to Putin while shredding through some Russian sausage furnished by Roncy Village veteran Super Kolbasa.
I Love Churros will quell your deep-fried desires with their “predominantly choux” pastry oozing with sweet, sticky filling.
Leather pigs should oink their way over to BBQ Gourmet, where ribs aplenty will have them squealing with delight.
They say you only really borrow corn, so The Mighty Cob is a better bet for the health-conscious, vegetarians… and lesbians.
Fondle your fill of royal breasts from The Queen of Chicken, formerly Bella’s Churrasqueira.
Hungry homos will pounce on Vesta Lunch on Wheels like white on rice – which is fitting as the food truck is billed as “classic diner food with Korean fusion.”
And, finally, 416 Snack Bar Catering will be slinging mini morsels, perfect for pocket-gays of all kinds!
