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.submit your event
Ontario Winter Games
February 27 - March 1
Athletes will compete in 27 sports, centralized throughout Orillia, Barrie, Oro-Medonte, Rama and Severn over the four day competition taking place on February 27 to March 1, 2020. This will allow participants and spectators to cheer on various sports! Orillia and area is ready to welcome 3,500 athletes, coaches, officials and dignitaries. For the first time ever, the Games are projected to be at capacity. With the games having a smaller footprint and the additional participants, it is estimated that most of the $5 million dollars in economic impact will be concentrated with the 5 communities hosting the Games.
The Orillia 2020 Ontario Winter Games will attract not only the many participants, but an additional 5,000 spectators from all over Ontario. These Games are a great opportunity to showcase your community to people visiting from across Ontario and promote local tourism and community attractions for visitors.
Orillia has a rich sport history, both as participants and as event planners. Orillia was chosen as host due to its premier sport venues, engaged community with outstanding civic pride and willingness to work with all levels of government.
Be on the lookout for several public celebrations, cultural and promotional activities to support the Games.
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!
