Last year I'd only touched on three or so of these festivals. I was astounded that so many compete for our leisure time in this one weekend in Toronto.
By the way, two separate events are scheduled for Wychwood Barns on Sunday. I invited people to write me to let me report on how that turns out.
One Investigative Writing Tip from a Dozen Events
One of the annual events that I'd covered in 2012 holds their activity at Yonge Dundas Square. Since the organizer, Panorama India, did not have all the details I wanted on their site for the 2013 edition, I checked the Yonge Dundas Square schedule.
To my surprise, it was only listed as "To Be Announced". Fearing that Panorama India might have fallen apart, I sent an e-mail. They replied, both with the details I requested and also to say that they hadn't realized that Yonge Dundas Square needed to be updated. So my query resolved my concerns but also led to the information being posted in the official YDS schedule.
The writing tip is to ask questions when needed. Develop your sources!
This works very well when the question will help that other party. Both Panorama India and YDS benefit from having the information posted on the YDS schedule. Other groups have also responded to my questions when they realize they're getting free publicity.
Be polite, respectful, concise and specific with your questions. Start by stating your purpose in a way that demonstrates a benefit to the other party.
Remember to thank them later for their reply, preferably with a link to your new article.
Thank you for reading about these dozen annual summer events in Toronto that
