FIGMENT Toronto is a free, inclusive, participatory arts event held in Dufferin Grove Park. FIGMENT’s mission is to offer free, family-friendly and participatory art to entire communities.

FIGMENT’s vision for art looks past the white-walled galleries and into the realm of participation. Art is not just something that you stand still and quietly look at–it is something you participate in. You touch it, smell it, write on it, talk to it, dance with it, play with it, learn from it. Interactive art creates a dynamic collaboration between the artist, the audience and their environment. 

What A Ball

Impress your friends and walk on water with “What A Ball."

Until Now… …You have only been able to play on the OUTSIDE of the ball. Join the latest craze. Our Walk On Water Balls provide a fun, safe, and unique opportunity for people of ALL ages to experience the feeling of walking on water! Now you can walk, roll, run, tumble and fall on the surface of the water without even getting wet. Great for kids, teens, and adults too!

Sunday morning in the playground at Bloor and Dufferin, Dovercourt Baptist Church contributes to Play Fair with games and amusements for children and adults, along with an ecumenical service at 10am. Everyone is welcome!
