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.

Adult Art Parties at MacLaren Art Centre

On the last Wednesday of the month, bring your friends to the MacLaren to enjoy a hearty art party! In this new series of workshops for adults, a different regional artist takes over the MacLaren Education Centre to lead you in the creation of a project based on their area of expertise. Every month is a new and exciting experience! Pair your art-making session with pizza, a quesadilla or samosas and a glass of wine from our fully licensed Café to create the perfect evening. Beginner and intermediate levels of experience are welcome.

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!
