GreekTown is a Business Improvement Area located roughly between Chester and Jones Ave on Danforth Ave. Roughly 450 businesses are situated in this area and each contributes financially to the promotion and beautification of the community.
In the early 1970’s, Canada welcomed thousands of Greek citizens. Many members of the community flocked to the Danforth. As a tribute to the numbers of Hellenic citizens who lived and worked in the area, the Business Improvement Area voted to change the name to GreekTown on the Danforth in 1993.
GreekTown on the Danforth is the largest Hellenic business community in North America and indeed is the third largest in the world after Greece and Melbourne, Australia.
In 1994, GreekTown launched the Krinos Taste of the Danforth creating the largest Greek festival in the world outside of Greece.
