These Restaurants Will be at Mississauga’s Newest Food and Street Festival
Summer might be drawing to a close, but festival season isn't over yet—especially since a first-of-its-kind food festival is about to hit Mississauga.
Mississauga's inaugural Taste of Cooksville festival is scheduled to kick off on Sunday, Sept. 22
Organizers say that more than 20 vendors have signed up for the festival and will be bringing a $5 signature dish for visitors to give them as 'taste' of Cooksville.
This will make the Taste of Cooksville a superbly affordable festival.
Mississauga Councillor Dipika Damerla will mark the festival’s inauguration with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1:00 pm in the main presentation area located on the corner of Jaguar and Dundas.
Commuters should note that Dundas Street will be closed down to vehicular traffic from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm between Hurontario Street and Camilla Road.
The entire area will be transformed into a pedestrian-friendly, lively and vibrant "town square" that will offer attendees a taste of the hidden gems of Cooksville - namely the numerous eateries that are tucked away in the nooks and corners of Dundas and Hurontario Streets.
Free parking will be available at Cooksville GO Station, TLK Secondary School and numerous plazas.
There will be a free bike valet service available at the event, so people are encouraged to cycle if they can.
From Mexican to Korean, European to Asian, Vietnamese to Pakistani and Indian cuisine, the festival will feature many different restaurants from the area.
Here are some of the restaurants that will showcase their specialities:
- Potluck Caribbean Cuisine
