Festivals, movie nights and various other events are planned in the coming months at Mississauga Celebration Square as city officials welcome people back to some “summertime magic” after two years of pandemic-related cancellations.

City of Mississauga officials say beginning this month and continuing into October, live and in-person events are back at the square, which is presenting the lineup under the theme “Summertime Magic.”

“Enjoy a variety of free events from food festivals to outdoor fitness and live music, representing a mosaic of Mississauga’s cultural scene. There is something for everyone to enjoy,” the City said in a news release today (May 3).
