Yonge-Dundas Square

Yonge-Dundas Square The Heart of the City! A public square in downtown Toronto, Yonge-Dundas Square is the top location choice for a range of free events -- we host concerts, festivals, movie screenings and so much more!

We're open 365 days of the year. Located at the south east corner of Yonge and Dundas Street in the heart of Toronto, Yonge-Dundas Square (YDS) hosts hundreds of events each year, from concerts and festivals to promotions and media launches. When there's no event going on we turn on the fountains, spread out the cafe furniture and invite you to enjoy the urban sanctuary in the heart of our buzzing city.

"This place has massive significance for me. I’m a massive Christmas guy. My whole family is. I love coming downtown and being with family and shopping and kinda just being around everything in Toronto.
And I love the lights. I love when it gets snowy. So for me, it’s about Christmas time too and we’re getting there. So it’s about the snow and how it falls in front of the billboard ads - it’s picturesque." Oliver

In the midst of the occurrence at the square this afternoon at 4pm, when the crowds panicked and started running I was unable to grab my brown fossil crossbody purse and pointclickcare backpack (blue/grey) with my belongings. When I returned an hour later as the building I ran into was on lockdown, my items were gone. If anyone has seen them or saw someone collecting items please connect with me. Thank you in advance for your help.
