How To Have The Best 4/20 Ever in Toronto Things to do in Toronto on 4/20 4/20 Toronto at Woodbine Park

Toronto’s public-facing cannabis scene exploded in the years leading up to legalization. First came the unlicensed dispensary rush, and now, just maybe in time for 4/20 — the first in the post-prohibition era — the city of more than 2.7 million people could have more than one licensed brick-and-mortar cannabis store open for business.

Things to do in Toronto on 4/20

4/20 Toronto at Woodbine Park

The organizers of Toronto’s largest 4/20 celebration have finally settled on a venue — Woodbine Park, in the city’s east end, will host the annual smoke-out. They said that after negotiating with local enforcement to move the event from Yonge-Dundas Square in the downtown core, they were given permission to host vendors.

“We still do not have a permit, but Toronto police and the City of Toronto have assured us if we move the event, we can have a stage, live music, vendors,” organizers wrote in a Facebook post. “This 420 Toronto, [there] will be a free Farmers Market. Bring your own tent, table, and clean up after yourself.”
