7 fun things to do this summer in Mississauga’s village in the city
Published June 20, 2023 at 3:48 pm
If you’re looking for fun ideas to get you out of the house this summer, be sure to take a trip out to Mississauga’s Streetsville neighbourhood.
The popular village in the city has a ton of events planned for the summer, and in general is one of the best places to spend time outdoors – the main street at the village square is closed to traffic in the summer, offering a pedestrian-friendly place to relax, eat, shop, and hang out with friends and family.
Streetsville is also a hotspot for fun summer events of all kinds, such as the Bread & Honey Festival, Mississauga’s longest running festival which was held in early June.
Whether you love to eat, dance, shop or just plain old have a good time, there’s something for everyone in Streetsville this summer.
