PINK MARKET is a queer craft, fashion, art & lit fair.
We are Toronto’s oldest and largest queer craft event, welcoming almost 10,000 visitors since our first event in 2015.
We aim to give queer creators from Toronto and across Canada a platform for their work, connecting them to members of the public as well as fostering a community of LGBTQ artists and makers.
Our flagship events are held twice a year: PINK MARKET is held during the early summer to coincide with Toronto's Pride festivities, and PINK XMAS is held ahead of the holiday season.
This fall, PINK MARKET is partnering with Aids Committee of Toronto (ACT) to bring our event to #AIDSWalkTO, a fundraiser for programs and services that support and empower people living with HIV and AIDS.
This year’s walk is being held in the evening for the first time ever, and we are thrilled to help start the march off in style at an outdoor kickoff bash featuring live performances, a beer garden, food trucks, and much more.
