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.

Ready to learn a new skill? Join Lois Foster for a full day workshop to learn the art of moccasin making! Lois participated in a program called Katimavik, where she travelled to different regions of Canada, working and volunteering in a wide variety of community programs. While in Northern Ontario, she learned to make moccasins from the Native people of that region. Lois has made many pairs of moccasins and mukluks, for indoor and outdoor use, summer and winter wear, small and large sizes, fur-cuffed and beaded. She has been instructing since the mid 1980’s. Now, mostly retired from her teaching career, she is doing workshops, working with homeschool groups in outdoor education, sharing her gifts and talents, and, surprise, surprise, learning new skills!
This is for basic moccasin making, a prerequisite for mukluks, lined, fur-cuffed, or beaded moccasin making. Classes will be held for 2-10 students at a cost of $150/person for the day. Included: tanned hide for moccasin body, leather lacing, pattern making, needles and sinew for stitching, all instruction and assistance to complete the project in one day. Bring your own lunch.
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!
