Friday is finally here (and it’s also St. Patrick’s Day!) which means it’s time to figure out what to do this weekend.

Between St Patty’s Day celebrations and an array of restaurants to choose from, those looking for something to do in the city have plenty of options.

So, without further ado, here are five things you can do this weekend (Mar. 17 to 19, 2023) in Mississauga.

Check out a maple syrup festival

An annual maple syrup festival has returned to Mississauga.

The festival, called Maple Magic, is being hosted at the Bradley Museum and will offer various maple-themed activities for all ages including an opportunity to experience the process of making maple syrup, indulge in pancakes with real maple syrup and enjoy crafts and games.

This upcoming weekend (Mar. 18 and 19) guests will have the opportunity to go on an outdoor guided tour of the maple sap line and visit the historic Bradley House where Museum interpreters will re-enact the seasonal activities of the Bradley Family, including making maple taffy from syrup fresh off the fire.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

There are several events going on in Mississauga for St. Patrick’s Day today (Mar. 17) including a party that will be taking place at the Rec Room at Square One.

Along with green beer, the event will also feature games, prizes, live music, a DJ and more. There will be live entertainment from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. with a DJ and dancing to follow.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and attendees must be over 19 years of age. There will be no cover to attend the event.

Visit this antique market

The Sunday Antique Market takes place on Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Small Arms Inspection Building, located at 1352 Lakeshore Rd. East.

The market features over 80 vendors from across Ontario and Quebec who offer unique items from the past, designers, antique aficionados and savvy collectors.

The free all-ages event also features items from Victorian to mid-century modern, vintage jewellery, antiquarian books and other eclectic pieces, including rare antiques and sought-after vintage items.

Visit the Living Arts Centre

A celebration of Irish and Celtic music will also take place at the Living Arts Centre (LAC) on Mar. 17.

The event, called Celtic Roots: A Celebration of Irish and Celtic Music will take place from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

The concert will showcase musical duo River North along with celebrated artists including fiddler Brigit O’Regan with percussionist and bodhrán player Jacob McCauley.

It is set to feature classic Irish music including songs by the Dubliners, Celtic Women, the Irish Rovers, the Chieftains and more.

Go for an outdoor skate

Going for an outdoor skate is always a good option, especially when you have one last chance to do so.

So head over to Celebration Square, where you can skate on the City’s largest outdoor ice rink with friends or family. The ice rink is open from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. but will close for the season on Mar. 19.
