LOCATION...

Getting to Cherry Beach is easier than you may think. There's lots of free parking, TTC goes directly there, so does the bike path, and anchorage for your boat just offshore. Once at the park go east along the bike path or follow the shoreline… you’ll hear the music.

Car - Cherry Beach is at the bottom of Cherry Street, south of Lakeshore Blvd East and Parliament. Free parking in the four lots inside the park.

TTC - 121C Bus
ttc.ca/Routes/121/RouteDescription.jsp?tabName=route

Bike - The best way. Follow the Waterfront Trail. Lock your bike to our surrounding fence, outside or inside.
waterfronttrail.org/maps/interactive-map-2/

Boat - The best way, too. Captain and crew, once ashore go to our gate to get your donation and wristband sorted.

SAFER SPACE...

Promise Cherry Beach welcomes everyone. Intolerance or harassment is not ok. Have each other’s back as a community, we’ve got yours. Our staff is ready to help.

ACCESSIBILITY...

While any beach presents certain challenges, there is firm ground surrounding our dancefloor and onsite accessible washroom. Get in touch beforehand with any specific needs - irving@ilovepromise.com.

WEATHER…

We have a great backup warehouse space standing by. Notice of a move posted to our event page by 4pm day before. Check there if any whisper of rain in the forecast. In the unlikely event of cancellation, donations will be credited towards an upcoming Promise Cherry Beach of your choice.

PROPS…

Promise works with Humber College’s Event Management Program. Our student interns Peace, Min, Lena and Softy are integrally involved in Cherry Beach. Watch the next generation go.

Mountains move slowly and with many hands. Thanks for the untold hours of care which brought Promise Cherry Beach to life through the swipes, types and gripes of Brandon, Mitch, Brooklyn, Jordan, Chris, Andy, Camille and Seb.

Our thanks also to Councillor Paula Fletcher and Mike and Cameron at the Music City Office.

In support of Toronto Music, Arts and Nature Alliance.

See you down at the beach.

Cheers,

David and Irving
