RWF TAKES PLACE ON Toronto’s Waterfront


The Redpath Waterfront Festival is an annual summer event that provides on-land and on-water programming for people of all ages and interests with the goal of promoting Toronto locally and internationally as a premiere waterfront destination.

With music, food, nautical programs and entertainment, the Festival has something for everyone to enjoy. Every three years, the event welcomes a fleet of majestic TALL SHIPS® to Toronto.

The Redpath Waterfront Festival is produced by Water’s Edge Festivals & Events (WEFE). WEFE is an Ontario not-for-profit corporation created in 2011 with a mandate to become the driving force behind the continuation of the successful Redpath Waterfront Festival. Our objectives are to produce an exceptional annual family festival; provide a strong economic impact for Toronto and Ontario; build strategic partnerships locally, regionally and nationally, including significant stakeholders Redpath Sugar, PortsToronto and The Waterfront BIA.

Our WEFE board members include: Nancy Gavin, Redpath Sugar Ltd; Kevin Currie, The Waterfront BIA; Deborah Wilson, PortsToronto; Shey Clark, Independent and James Manson, Independent.

Waterfront Neighbourhood Centre

The Redpath Waterfront Festival’s chosen charity is Waterfront Neighbourhood Centre. Waterfront Neighbourhood Centre (formerly Harbourfront Community Centre) is a non-profit organization that for 25 years has offered a wide range of programs for people of all ages – from babies through to seniors. In addition to the usual sports and recreation activities, they provide a number of free programs and offer social support services that promote healthy living for our ever changing waterfront neighbourhood.
