The weekend of August 2, 1918 was one of the most violent in Toronto’s history. As many as 50,000 people took to city streets over three days, rioting and destroying businesses owned by Greek immigrants. Learn what happened and why these riots are largely forgotten. Visit the locations where history was made!

Free and open to all. Registration is required. Contact our office, (416) 447-7107, for scheduled dates.
Learn about Toronto’s Greek community and its settlement on the Danforth during the postwar years. This walk will explore Greektown, from its foundations in faith and family, to milestone community events, and the evolution of businesses and restaurants, including the creation of Flaming Opa Cheese as a tourist spectacle.
Tour developed and led by the Hellenic Heritage Foundation.
Tour sponsored by the Hellenic Heritage Foundation and GreekTown on the Danforth BIA.
