The Toronto Mennonite Festival is run completely by volunteers. The Festival is a fundraiser for Mennonite Central Committee’s work of relief, community development and peacebuilding – in Ontario, in Canada, and in 60 countries around the world. This will be the Mennonite Central Committee’s 48th year at the Village, and since 1967, they have raised more than $1.3 million for MCC.
