We Know Things To Do in Ontario!
And right now, you need to stay home! There are no events, no getaways, no reason to road trip. Check back later and keep your thoughts set on summer!! Stay safe and stay healthy.
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.submit your event

Garnet Rogers & Peter Paul Van Camp
May 14, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Peter Paul Van Camp, “The Only Performing Poet From Coshocton Ohio,” is a much loved and well-remembered figure from the late 70’s and early 80’s Canadian Folk Festival circuit. He left the road life a few decades ago, and has only recently resumed his touring.
He and I are old friends and when we were offered a rare one-off chance to perform together last Fall we both jumped at it, although having never worked together as duo before, had no idea what to expect. The show was magic… at least for us.
We sat together and took turns, workshop style, Peter Paul reading his extraordinary poems, and me singing a few songs and reading passages from my memoir.
The contrast between his persona as a shy, bookish somewhat nerdy small town aesthete in a bow tie and several sweaters, and mine as a dissipated, world weary and occasionally vulgar relic of a folk singer led to a lot of laughter.
I’ve been performing for over 40 years, and have never seen an audience so helpless and on the ropes in the face of a show.
We went on for a couple of hours and could have easily done more but it would have been cruel to continue. I don’t know when I have had so much fun.
Backstage after the show, we looked at each other and said, at the same time, “We have to do this again.”
So we are. I am thrilled about this and am so looking forward to seeing if we can make lightning strike again.
