Now in its fifth year, The Pan American Food & Music Festival is Canada’s only annual festival that celebrates the Western Hemisphere’s rich diversity of cuisine, music and art. This free event is presented annually in Toronto to reinforce the growing cultural identity shared among Canadians and the 40 other countries of North, Central and South America and the Caribbean.

Photographer Jeannette Breward spent the day at the fest capturing all the faces, the fun and the food that this truly unique and special event has to offer.  We can’t wait to do it again next year!
