Last month at Daniels Spectrum, the ACE Bakery Artisan Incubator brought together 20 artisan breadmakers from across Canada to showcase themselves and their products during a weekend in Toronto to celebrate the 20th anniversary of ACE Bakery. It’s the only party we’ve ever been to that had a chandelier made out of baguettes!
Daniels Spectrum was an amazing venue for the ACE Bakery Artisan Incubator. It is brand new and boasts state-of-the art technology which helped our bottom line. The staff there was very helpful and accommodating throughout the planning process and was supportive during the build and breakdown as well. Our client ACE Bakery was very pleased with the venue selection and the event as a whole.
It’s hard to believe it’s only been four months since Daniels Spectrum opened its doors as the new cultural hub in Regent Park. People from all over the city have flocked to the building for art exhibitions, film screenings, concerts, dance and poetry festivals, fundraisers, meetings, speaker series, conferences and private events. It seems like there’s always something going on!
We’ve put together a collection of some of the most popular events from Daniels Spectrum’s opening season. Check out photos, recaps and reviews from events like the Manifesto Festival, Ideas Worth Rhyming, Flash Forward, World Food Day and the Toronto Urban Dance Symposium and see which notable music and film personalities have stopped by to visit!
Jane’s Walk, an annual festival of free walking tours, held their opening event in the Artscape Lounge at Daniels Spectrum last month. Official Jane’s Walk Photographer Jeremy Kai captured the festivities, which included a keynote speech by Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam and snacks from Paintbox Catering.

Plus, their retail and catering headquarters is located just up the street from Daniels Spectrum in Cabbagetown (248 Carlton St.) making them a great local choice.
From Russell Day, Vice President, Daniel et Daniel Catering:
“Daniel et Daniel hosted our Holiday Party at Daniels Spectrum. From planning to end-of-night load-out, we were thrilled with the venue, the venue representative, the AV support and the on-site host. This was our second time planning an event at DS, and we found the experience effortless!”
