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.

Each year the Midland Cultural Centre hosts our annual ukulele festival in beautiful downtown Midland. This 3 day festival, the first Uke Fest in Ontario, allows ukulele players of all ages to participate in workshops, jam sessions, concerts and all things ukulele-based.
With a diverse, lively, educational range of workshops presented by a host of skilled, dynamic workshop leaders, catering to every Uke skill level from beginner to advanced, Midland Uke Fest offers a unique, one-of-a-kind experience for every type of ukulele aficionado!
The All Access WEEKEND Pass includes access to the entire Uke Fest schedule of events including:
- Friday Evening Uke Cruise aboard the Miss Midland
- Saturday Night All Star Concert
- Plus all inclusive access to ALL Uke Fest Workshops and Jams!
With over 150 participants all playing simultaneously, our mass jam session, Uke-Mania is an exhilarating experience and a festival favourite which we believe every Uke lover should experience!
As Uke Fest continues to grow annually, attracting ukulele enthusiasts from all across the province and beyond, we are honoured to be able to host so many like minded, truly wonderful people every May! We can’t wait to welcome back old friends, and greet new ones at Uke Fest 2019!
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!
