In the Park on a Thursday evening? Why not drop in and join us at the Lodge? Discover how the Howard's fulfilled their ideal of a romantic villa in 1837– building their country retreat from City life. Step through the French doors and enjoy the view as the Howard's did. Their lifelong love of the park ensured its preservation as a retreat for us all.

All of your Harvest Festival favourites will still be here as well – artisans, local food, community organizations, museum friends, music, dance, pumpkin carving, apple bobbing, wagon rides – and of course our famous roast potatoes. This event is presented as part of TO Canada with Love, the City of Toronto's year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions honouring Canada's 150th birthday.
