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.
Want to get your festival or event listed on the Ontario Travel North site? Please send your listing and details for consideration to Events and Festivals North of Toronto.
Jack and the Beanstalk: The Panto
June 5 - June 22
Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum, a giant panto your way comes!
Bring the family and cheer for Jack and boo the evil giant as one of the most popular children’s stories of all time becomes larger than life.
Jack and his mother are down on their luck and they need to make money fast. But when Jack takes their beloved cow to market, all he gets for her are a few measly beans. But these are no ordinary beans … they’re magic! When Jack wakes to find a gigantic beanstalk in the middle of his mom’s garden, a wild adventure begins. The brave young lad climbs to the top above the clouds where he finds an enormous castle, an enchanted harp, a feisty princess in need of rescue … and a giant with an even bigger appetite!
Just like past panto hits Cinderella, Aladdin, and Snow White, this fun-filled musical adventure is packed with popular music, lively dancing, outrageous costumes, audience participation and more
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!
