EVENTS & FESTIVALS IN GREATER TORONTO AREA

On virtually every weekend all year long, there is a show or event in Toronto, Mississauga, Markham, Oakville, Richmond Hill or Pickering. You can be a chili tester at a chili fest, compare Elvis look-alikes, admire pristine antique cars, or enjoy a music festival. Entertainment, food and fun abound at the many events all across the province.

Fairs and Shows

Agricultural fairs tend to happen in the fall and are a great way to get caught up in the wonderful atmosphere of a small town, although Toronto does have some large ones too, including the world famous Royal Agricultural Winter Fair and the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), both at Exhibition Place. Don’t forget about things like craft shows too – they’re all over the GTA.
