I LOVE living in Toronto, however a girl has to get away from the hustle bustle now and then.
Interested in a weekend trip out of the city? Looking for something out of the ordinary? Here’s an inspired day trip for you..
Ajax Downs is hosting their very first Steak Stock festival..
Steak Stock is Ajax Downs’ inaugural country-themed event with a focus on beer, live bands and beef! Local food and beverage vendors will provide a southern inspired offering of beer and barbecue for everyone to enjoy! Steak Stock promises great food, fun activities, awesome live music and exhilarating live horse racing at Ajax Downs.
Here’s your chance to embrace country living.. even if it’s only for a day or two.
There will be a number of musicians playing Steak Stock for your entertainment and enjoyment! Catch some of these acts on Saturday and Sunday.
The live lineup will include the musical talents of: Livy Jeanne, Lindsay Broughton, Autum Hill, Leah Daniels, Jack Connolly, Kaitlin Kozell, Sara Mione, Cold Creek County, Sawmill Road, Casey Spencer & Andrew Hyatt.
Browsing through the many artists playing this weekend I came across Livy’s cover of “Skinny Love” by Bon Iver on Youtube. I was excited to see this, as I am a huge fan of Bon Iver. Check out some of her other videos.
You’ll have a number of options when it comes to time to take a break and refuel during the festival. Try a tasty Shinny Apple Cider, BBQ “Horn Dawg”, Publican House brew or a Jimmy Guaco’s burrito!
Get you camera ready! There’s going to be a lot of amazing photo ops this weekend with friends and family..
Get excited to see live quarter horse racing taking place on Sunday July 19th!Be sure to check out Nick’s Picks if you care to make a wager.
You might consider taking part in the BBQ Giveaway and watching the Live BBQ Cookoff. Stop by with the kids to get their faces painted, or dare to give the mechanical bull a try!
