Planning is about to start for the much-loved and completely volunteer-run DECA Arts Fair that happens in September. If you’d like to meet some local artists, make some new friends, and be part of a great scene in Danforth East, then come to the event’s first meeting.
Members of the TV show cast Private Eyes, including Jason Priestley, were snapped while filming on location in Danforth East. Priestly’s guest co-star William Shatner wasn’t on-set. Let’s hope he beams up to the Danforth soon!
Hey dear readers, your Danforth East Online bloggers have really enjoyed sharing stories of the goings-on and people of our neighbourhood in 2016. We wish you a wonderful New Year ahead. Here’s a collection of pics from our posts this year. – Pat and Kim. XO!

You may know the irrepressible Nicola St. John as a local realtor and Danforth East booster. In fact she is also an experienced actor whose voice you hear on radio and TV every day.
This Friday night Nicola will donate her time and vocal talents to a special fundraiser at U of T. Nicola will serve as MC and, she hopes, help raise a lot of money to help private sponsors bring two Syrian families to Toronto.
Tickets are still available. The event promises to be a lot of fun, and includes delicious Middle-Eastern food and live entertainment. Plus there will be a silent auction with at least one elusive Hatchimal – THE children’s Christmas gift of the year – on offer.
“I hope a lot of Danforth Easters will come out,” says Nicola. “It’s a very worthy cause and it sounds like a great evening too. Hope to see you there.”
