With the first official day of summer on the horizon, the Mississauga Waterfront Festival is our unofficial kick off to summer here in Mississauga.
There's arts and crafts, performances, food plus plenty more ready and waiting for you to experience in this exciting 20th anniversary!
What is the Mississauga Waterfront Festival?
The Mississauga Waterfront Festival, celebrating its 20th year in 2016, is a three-day outdoor festival that offers visitors a plethora of live music, family activities, food and entertainment.
Seeing over 65,000 visitors, the yearly tradition for many is held in beautiful Port Credit and has achieved a Top 100 Festivals in Ontario ranking for 10 years.
What can I expect at the Mississauga Waterfront Festival?
The corn maze, food trucks, potters guild and hands on exotic animal attractions are just a few of many exciting reasons to visit.
On the entertainment side, Mississauga-born-and-raised star Alessia Cohle graces the stage on Friday at 7:00 pm, and the entire event is lined with remarkable talent from cool cover bands to outstanding original material. There's something for nearly everyone, regardless of age!
Perhaps this could be the year you start your attendance tradition!

How much is admission to the Mississauga Waterfront Festival?

That sounds great and all, but why should I go?
Aside from the food, activities and live music, plus the rowing/canoeing and yoga, the festival has been recognized as Mississauga’s Signature Family and Friends event, they partner with local charitable and not-for-profit organizations and provide donations that help with their outreach programs, and it's the unofficial kick off to summer.
Here's our Mayor, Bonnie Crombie, congratulating them!
