Cabbagetown Festival

Today Jen and I took The Bean to the Cabbagetown Festival.  It's an annual weekend-long festival held here in the city.  For us, the main attraction is the Arts Festival in the park.  There's also a street festival, short film festival, community garage sale and walking tours of historic homes in the area.

The last time we went was two years ago when we were just starting the whole TTC process.  It was nice to be back this time with baby in tow.  The Bean seemed to enjoy looking around at everything going on from his place in the Ergo.  When he was getting tired and fussy, we faced him inwards and he napped while we walked around for a little while longer. 
Taking a break.  Of course, The Bean did not want to lie on the big blanket we brought along.   
There was a nice variety of vendors.  Paintings, some pottery, clothing for both kids and adults, other textiles, specialty foods, soaps, etc.  I didn't take a lot of photos and we didn't buy anything, but we had a great time browsing.  Hopefully it's something we can make an annual tradition. 


  1. Sounds like a great adventure! And, I love the photos. What a cutie!

  2. Sorry we missed you guys yesterday! It sounds like it was a great time. We'll definitely have to meet up for the Queen West festival.

  3. Thanks Alayna!
