We Know Things To Do in Ontario!
You will never ask “What is happening north of Toronto (and in central and northern Ontario) this weekend”? again! Use our events calendar to find things to do in Ontario and even in Ontario this weekend or in the future. Whether you like to lay low and chill or get your rush from adrenaline pumping activities and experiences – the calendar has events for everyone, in every season from the Bruce Peninsula to the Ottawa Valley!
Depending on your drive, you’ll find action anywhere from 1 hour away from Toronto to 5. Our events are not limited to highways 400 and 11 either. These are just the first two highway suggestions to travel north and find adventure in Ontario.

Alliston Potato Festival
August 11, 2017 - August 13, 2017
The Alliston Potato Festival is celebrating it’s 44th years – August 11 -13, 2017. It started has a one day event but quickly turned into a weekend full of activities. This is truly a community happening where families return to their roots, meet up with old friends and meet new friends while enjoying the event. We have one of the largest parades in Ontario – a must to see for sure. It happens on Victoria Street the Friday night as a kick off to the festival. The events and activities take place both on Victoria St and the Fairgrounds which is located on church st behind the firehall.
Featured Ontario Festivals
This is it! These are them!
Our annual list of Best Festivals, or as we call it around the office “The Bestivals” list.
We pick a new list each year, some are hosted by our advertisers, some festivals we have sponsored and well, some we think are just plain pretty cool.
The list has been assembled keeping in consideration current trends and what people out there really seem to be seeking out. We’ve tried to include events and festivals that might be family focused, adult focused, or both!
