PHOTOGRAPHY AND FILMING

Being a public space, personal photographs and videos at Yonge-Dundas Square are permissible. However, commercial photography/film shoots must obtain an event permit to be on site. This includes anything that has a “set-up” or could impede or interfere with another possible event. At this time the Square does not offer special rates for film shoots.

News teams, weather reporting, and all other forms of ENG (Electronic News Gathering) do not require a permit. If you are interested in coming on site for a reason like this please contact Natalie Belman, Manager of Events & Partnerships, at natalie@ydsquare.ca to discuss availability and ease of access.

STREET PERFORMERS

On days with no scheduled events, we invite the artistic street performers of Toronto to come down and use our space as a platform for their talents. All busker performances must adhere to our performance policy.

Submissions will be accepted throughout the year. Please make sure you have completed all aspects of the application, and signed the declaration at the end. No money is required upon submission, as not all applications will be accepted. Please ensure that you will be able to provide the insurance requirements (including type of insurance and additional insureds) should your application be successful. Policies can be emailed to info@ydsquare.com, faxed to 416 979 8836, or mailed to 2 Carlton Street, Suite 1707, Toronto, M5B 1J3.

Permits will be issued for the period April 4, 2019 - April 3, 2022.

 
 

*Yonge-Dundas Square does not accept unsolicited proposals from vendors.  If you are interested in being a food vendor at a third-party event, please contact the event directly. Due to confidentiality agreements, we are unable to provide contact information for our event organizers.
