Family fun at Mississauga Waterfront Festival


Mississauga Waterfront Festival in Ontario

Marking its 20th anniversary this year, Mississauga’s award-winning family event is the perfect day out for little ones on holiday in Canada.

The Mississauga Waterfront Festival celebrates community spirit and fun in an action-packed weekend of entertainment and games at the city’s Port Credit Memorial Park. From June 17th-19th, families can enjoy outdoor concerts, activities, food and more at this festival just half an hour’s drive from Toronto in Ontario.

You’ll be having fun and supporting a good cause at the festival, as every year organisers partner with local charities and not-for-profit groups to donate vital funds to them. Many also run outreach programmes at the event to inspire attendees to help out those in need in their community. This year, organisations such as St. John Ambulance, Mississauga Heritage and Together for Youth among others have been chosen.

The Mississauga Waterfront Festival offers free admission and 2016’s line-up features a carnival, performances from country, rock and roll and British-themed musicians, craft and sports activities for children to get stuck into and plenty of food vendors to ensure the whole family gets fed.

Around the park you’ll find various stalls, activity points and stages, including the Heritage Stage where guests can see live performances of Ukrainian dancing or African tribal music. Youngsters may even get the chance to meet some of their favourite characters from the films at the park’s Dave D’Eyre Square.

Be sure to explore Mississauga while you’re there as there’s plenty to see and do in between the festival’s highlights. The historic village of Streetsville offers a glimpse into Mississauga’s past, while Rattray Marsh Conservation Area is perfect for nature enthusiasts and also offers access to the Lake Ontario Waterfront Trail.
