Summer in the Park Festival
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 thing to do like a fun event, festival or happening for you, you and your partner or you and your family! Whether you like to lay-low and chill or get your rush from adrenaline pumping activities and experiences – the calendar has events for every one, 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.
