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

Roots North Music Festival
April 21, 2017 - April 22, 2017
Roots music can refer to several styles or genres in music, but to us it’s music that is firmly rooted in a place of honest expression and emotion. It’s music that travels, shares, and connects, while honouring the past and bravely moving forward. It’s our mission to bring together a wide range of artists and people who share this vision for a weekend of great live music.
Historic Downtown Orillia, Ontario, Canada serves as the backdrop for the music festival. Our headline shows will take place at the beautifully restored St. Pauls Centre at 62 Peter Street South. Late Night shows will be in Downtown Orillia’s newest venue, The Geneva Event Centre, 16 West Street South.
Music, shopping and entertainment surround you as you explore Downtown Orillia during the Roots North Music Festival.
In addition to our ticketed main event performances, several businesses along Mississauga Street have teamed up to provide free live music shows within their shops and restaurants. Be sure to explore and join us.
Performance venues include: Brewery Bay Food Co, Mark IV, Nourish Yoga Studio, Apple Annies, The Brownstone, Carousel Collectables, Alleycats Music & Art, Hog n’ Penny, the Farmers Market, Harold and Ferne, and Gauduer’s Cafe.
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!
