Living in Mississauga, there’s never an excuse to be bored – especially during the summertime. With Celebration Square’s lineup of activities and events, the challenge isn’t what to do this summer – it’s trying to figure out which of the many Square’s events to attend! Check out the list below for the amazing lineup of summer festivities that are coming up at Celebration Square.
Get ready to enjoy endless summer fun with Celebration Square’s kick-off event! Enjoy entertainment provided by Xtreme Bike Show, Make Believe Theatre and Elevate: A Cirque Production. Roaming stilt walkers, music noisemaking stations, giant floor pianos, airbrush face painting and an interactive Silly Putty Making station will keep the entire family busy.
Hungry? Choose your favourite food at one of the many food trucks or at the mini Lion’s Club Farmer’s Market.
Eating fresh and shopping local is easy this summer! Visit the MCLC Farmers Market most Wednesdays to purchase the finest local fruits and vegetables, homemade preserves, baked goods, and wine. The best part? This Lions Farmers Market supports many Mississauga and global projects.
Enjoy free, one-hour Zumba, bootcamp and yoga classes most Wednesday evenings. Led by Fresh Air Fitness, the classes are suitable for all fitness levels and abilities and will include modifications.
Watching movies outdoors under the stars with family and friends – what a great way to spend an evening!
With a full lineup of classics, family favourites and blockbuster hits, these movie nights are suitable for all members of the community. Closed captioning and pathways throughout the event are available to assist attendees with disabilities.
