SUMMER of Wonder

Welcome to Summer 2014

Escape with us, take a break with us, innovate with us. Leave your inhibitions, your expectations and your reservations at home.

Let's open up and be transported. Let's rediscover the waterfront and surrender to the unreal, the magical, the indescribable. Let's get lost close to home.

We'll party with rock stars, dine with iron chefs and dream with international artists. We'll experience colour and movement, ideas and sharpened knives. We'll indulge in a feast for every sense, in every sense.

This is the season to get hands on, to immerse yourself in wonder. This is the season to take a chance, be part of the crowd and do your own thing; to get lost in the new, the exciting, the rare.

This is summer at Harbourfront Centre. This is the summer of you.
