Every year since 2005, the Town of York Historical Society has celebrated Toronto's “birthday” on March 6th with a gala event at St. Lawrence Hall, the proceeds from which support Toronto's First Post Office. The theme of the event is fluid, but always focused on the history of Toronto. Recent programs have honoured other anniversaries such as the bicentennial of the War of 1812, or 175 years since William Lyon Mackenzie’s year as our first mayor. Last year they presented Soldiers of Song: A Tribute to the Dumbells, about a sketch comedy troupe recruited from the ranks of soldiers in World War One.
Extending from the East side of Yonge Street to the Don River, and from the North side of Lakeshore Road up to the South side of Queen Street, Old Town Toronto encompasses six distinct neighbourhoods: St. Lawrence Market, Town of York, King Street East, Queen Street East and the Distillery District.
