The largest Halal food festival in North America “Halal Food Fest” returns to Toronto for the 5th year and expects over 30,000 visitors on July 15 and 16 at the International Centre.
As it’s grown, the festival has expanded beyond a homogeneously Muslim audience. Sponsorship comes from big brands like Redpath Sugar.
"We’ve made a lot of adjustments over the five years to grow,” says organizer SalimaJivraj.
All food is halal, of course, with signage clearly identifying which meats are hand or machine-slaughtered.
