Formerly known as the Redpath Waterfront Festival, this year things look a little different. Instead, you can stroll the Redpath Waterfront Trail at Toronto’s waterfront for two weeks at your leisure and take your imagination for a walk.

The trail spans from Lower Sherbourne to Lower Spadina with unique Augmented Reality (AR) stops. There will also be art installations stationed along the waterfront, such as light sculptures and a live graffiti mural painting.

Augmented Reality (AR) Stops

  • The Quack Is Back! – Say a virtual hi to Mama Duck, the World’s Largest Rubber Duck, who floated into Toronto and made a big splash in 2017
  • A Futuristic View – See what’s in store for the future of Toronto’s waterfront and take a sneak peak at the building plans for the area
  • A Sweet Swim – Take a trip underwater as Redpath’s Whaling Wall comes to life around you
  • A Water Walk – Walk on water and see where Toronto’s waterline used to be
  • A Quay To The Past – Open a door to the past and experience Toronto’s industrial waterfront in the 1920s

In addition, along the Redpath Waterfront Trail there will be promotions for local businesses (Tall Ship Kajama and Kardia Fitness) and restaurants (Amsterdam Brewhouse, Westin Harbour Castle, Against The Grain, Goodman Pub & Kitchen and Pie Bar).
