Hello  Cabbagetown! 

cabbagetown-bia-directorContributed by Virginia Gallop, Executive Director, Cabbagetown BIA — It’s Virginia here, your new Cabbagetown BIA Executive Director. I’m excited to be here, bringing my career and lifetime experience in the arts, arts administration and event planning. As well, I’m a former Executive Assistant for a City of Toronto Councillor, so I fully understand and appreciate the vital role a BIA provides.  I’m filling some very big and capable shoes. Huge thanks to Rick Matthews for the groundwork he laid during his time as ED, and his ongoing role showcasing this vibrant neighbourhood and its businesses through social media. In the near future, our highly capable BIA Coordinator, Shivon Yim will be riding that momentum as she steps into the role of Social Media Coordinator. Continue to tune in and be inspired by what you see.

A few things to look out for in the coming weeks and months. We’re infusing live music starting the weekend of Aug. 28/29. Come out and enjoy the great vibes at a few locations. We’re featuring lots of Cabbagetown talent and you may even see your own neighbour performing! See our ad on page X for more information. A few more of your BIA’s initiatives include animating empty storefronts with art and upgrades, hosting the annual AGM, and – yes it’s true, preparing to kick off the Holiday season! Drop in anytime to say hello. We’re always glad to see you, and happy to put a face to a name. Even with a mask on!
