(TORONTO, ON) May 25, 2020 – With summer looming and Toronto’s festivals at a halt due to COVID-19, The Canadian Salsa Festivals Project (CSFP) invites Canadians to `Keep Dancing` with today`s announcement that the salsa party will go on! Canada’s largest celebration of Latin culture – the TD Salsa in Toronto Festival – will take place virtually on July 18th & 19th delivering a TV and Digital Festival Experience for Canadians across the country.
