Chinatown Toronto

Chinatown is an ethic enclave in Downtown Toronto with a high concentration of Chinese residents and businesses. Chinatown Toronto is extending along Spadina Avenue. Toronto Chinatown is one of the largest in North America and one of major Chinese-Canadian communities. 

Chinatown in Toronto appeared in 1890s with the migration of American Chinese from California due to racial conflict and economic depression on the Eastern United States. 

There are a number of restaurants, shops, historic monuments, activities and spas. There is something for everyone. 

One of the biggest events in Chinatown Toronto is Toronto Chinatown Festival. It is a nonprofit event, and all you need to do is pay tribute to the Chinese culture. The festival usually attracts over 100,000 people.
