Start with tomatoes, add garlic and hot peppers, and garnish withcilantro! Set fire to those taste buds during Kensington’s 22st annual SUN AND SALSA FESTIVAL.

You get to be the judge. Purchase a bag of chips from our Charities for $3 or 2 for $5, and taste test your way through all the spicy salsa recipes served up by teams of Kensington businesses. Our Charities will also be selling water for $2.
This annual family event takes place along Kensington Road and 10th Street NW. Six live entertainment stages will spread Latin flavour through the neighbourhood if you want to listen to music and dance. Bring your kids to the Children’s Carnival zone for family orientated entertainment and fun! Check out our amazing art demonstrations or be an artist yourself and help paint a mandala on the street. And of course all our great Kensington retailers, restaurants and pubs will be open for your shopping and eating pleasure. Along with the streets being filled with vendors & artisans selling a variety of products & services for the day.
Both Kensington Road and 10th Street will be closed for the day. There’s a LRT stop (Sunnyside) right at the Kensington Safeway, so public transit is a great way to beat the crowds. And we’re right off the bike paths so why not ride, blade, run or walk on over to our festival!
