Kosa’s Festival Revives the True Meaning of a Festival.
KalynDar will be taking part in Kosa Kolektiv’s spring celebration, Haivky.

When one mentions “festival” in this part of the world, people immediately think of it in commercial terms – big stages, sound systems, visiting artists, official schedules, ticket sales, wrist bands, CDs and many other forms of merchandising – from specialty foods to cultural wares.

No money will ever cross hands. In contrast, this is a true community celebration to welcome Spring back to Toronto!
