Vendor Opportunities

Food Lab

The Food Lab (formerly World Café) is an important complement to the summer festival season at Harbourfront Centre. Its where our summer festival patrons have the opportunity to experience the cuisines of the world served from professional kitchens in a beautiful waterfront setting.

Our goal is to feature culturally specific vendors during partnership festivals, as well as a wide range of foods from all cultures throughout the season.

Rental rates have been updated for 2020. When you apply, please read our updated Rules and Regulations carefully. Please note that you need to be a registered business in order to apply.

Sorry, we are not accepting snack vendor applications this year.
