Details

The Tot Squad: AKA Small Print, The Little Paper and Rooster Studio present Totstock 10'. This is a free event (2-5pm) with plenty of food and drink tents. Booksales by Another Story.

As the rest of the city becomes embroiled in the shenanigans of international G20 diplomacy, why don’t you join your neighbours in a whimsical celebration of local culture? The Tot Squad celebrates the second annual festival of kid-friendly indie culture, in Sorauren Park. Proceeds from this year’s afternoon of songs, stories, games and activities will be donated to the Wabash Building Society.

Once again, the Mainstage lineup features an array of Toronto’s top kid-friendly indie bands and performers:

• DON KERR & FRIENDS
• THE MONKEY BUNCH
• BELLWOODS TRINITY
• CHRIS PATTERSON
• THE ELWINS
• DJ TERRENCE DICK

With appearances by Dave Bidini and other Special Guests!

What would Totstock be without some of our city’s leading children’s authors? Check out who’ll be appearing at the Small Print tent:

• LANA BUTTON Willow’s Whispers (Kids Can Press)
• LAUREL CROUZA, MATT JAMES I Know Here (Groundwood Books)
• SHARON JENNINGS C’Mere Boy (Kids Can Press)
• PATRICIA STORMS The Pirate & The Penguin (Owl Books)
• LYNDA HILL, Artistic Director of THEATRE DIRECT, will read Peter Rabbit by BEATRIX POTTER. (Penguin Group Canada)

And there’s a good chance that the lovable rascal, Peter himself ,will make an cameo appearance.

Totstock Activities are decidedly lo-tech. We're firm in our belief that you don't need a bunch of bouncy castles, fast food and Disney™ characters to have a great time with your kids.

SWEET PEA and CORIANDER GIRL, an organic landscaper and florist is bringing buckets of flowers to decorate bicycles. Mid-afternoon, the decorated bikes will parade the park, led by the minstrels of Bellwoods Trinity. WESTSIDE CYCLE will also be on hand to provide bike and helmet safety checks.

THE CENTRE FOR ART & SOUL is providing children's games and yoga,. MRS HUIZENGA is bringing her tickle trunk of dress up clothes. PINE PROJECT will lead nature crafts. THE PLANET IN FOCUS INTERNATIONAL FILM & VIDEO FESTIVAL is supplying “Mixed Greens”, a series of short films for children for our bicycle-powered film festival. Local movers and shakers will power the festival in 15 minute bike stints. ANOUK'S ARK is leading the families in a giant game of memory with her Endangered Species Game.
