The First TD-Union Block Party of the Summer

Posted on

TD Union Block Party

Last Thursday, TD Bank and Union celebrated the launch of the summer music season by rocking Toronto’s core with the TD-Union Block Party at Union Station!

As the Founding Sponsor and Exclusive Financial Service Partner of Union Station, TD and Union have come together to create a summer long program which is all about bringing people together to celebrate the importance of music in our lives. Planned acts include incredible Canadian talent from across the country.

Hosted by Canadian hip-hop legend and personality Kardinal Offishall, the TD-Union Block Party kicked-off with performances by up-and-coming artists Nefe and Andee, followed by sets from co-headliners Shawn Hook and Francesco Yates.

The audience sang along while Shawn Hook performed his breakout-hit Sound of Your Heart. Francesco Yates showed off his true star power, taking over the stage with his expert guitar playing, singing and dancing! Seeing everyone come together to enjoy some amazing home-grown talent was an incredible experience and we can’t wait for the next event.

TD will be continuing this musical programming throughout summer outside of Union Station. Make sure to stop by for some sunshine, snacks and celebration!
