Things to do at Evergreen Brick Works on Canada Day 2017

We couldn’t be more excited that TEDxToronto 2017 will be hosted Evergreen Brick Works! Leading a legacy of its own, Evergreen Brick Works has been supporting thousands of community projects and activating more green public spaces in not only the city of Toronto, but across Canada. Historically known as the Don Valley Pressed Brick Works Company, many of the bricks used to construct some of Toronto’s most prominent landmarks, such as Massey Hall and Casa Loma, came from this very spot!
