There’s so much happening this summer at Celebration Square in Mississauga

Published August 11, 2021 at 2:47 pm


Summer’s not over yet, and Mississauga’s Celebration Square is keeping the summer fun going all season long with nine unique and exciting events and things to do in Mississauga.

Celebration Square is also celebrating its 10th birthday this summer! That’s right – it’s already been a full decade since Celebration Square opened as a new hotspot for concerts, cultural and food events, movie nights, and more. According to the city, over six million people have visited Celebration Square since it opened.

From food to art to fun, get involved in the summer celebrations with these events:

Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0

Mi Casa, Your Casa is a creative and interactive installation, featuring 14 houses (casas) made from three-dimensional red frames. When a casa is empty, a welcoming white glow bids you to enter – once inside, the glow intensifies to show that someone is home. Inspired by the mercados of Latin America (lively street markets), the casas represent the comfort of our homes and are a great place for people of all ages to socialize in a playful way. Mi Casa, Your Casa was created by Mexican artists Esrawe and Cadena and is presented by HSBC.

The Porch – Food Trucks

Who doesn’t like food trucks? This summer, Celebration Square has a lineup of five trucks offering delicious food and sweets every single day from noon to 10:30 p.m.:

  • Le Chateau Chicken: Gourmet chicken, hot dogs, burgers and more
  • Dimkin’s Crepes: Sweet and savoury crepes, paninis, and hot drinks
  • GOGI: Korean fusion cuisine with pizza, dumplings and more
  • BeaverTails: Famous Canadian pastries topped with either sweet or savoury ingredients
  • The Cuban Thing: Tropical burger stop with an authentic Miami style

Food vendors will be accepting cash and contactless payment.

Farmers’ Market

Eat fresh and shop local with the Lion’s Farmers’ Market at Celebration Square, running every Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The popular farmers’ market offers a wide variety of items, such as homemade preserves and honey, baked goods, and Ontario-grown fruits and vegetables. The Lions Farmers Market is a charitable service project supporting numerous Mississauga and global community projects since 1975.

Amphitheatre Unplugged

Whether you want to grab the mic and perform, or just sit back and enjoy some local talent, the show is on at the Amphitheatre at Celebration Square. Amphitheatre Unplugged features emerging and established Mississauga talent including singers, musicians, dancers, spoken word artists, poets, comedians and more, and you could be one of them! The event is hosted by Mississauga Arts Council.

Fresh Air Fitness

The sky’s the limit with these free outdoor fitness classes happening at Celebration Square’s Amphitheatre. These classes (Stretch and Tone and Mindful Meditation) are designed to be accessible to all levels of fitness and ability! The classes incorporate injury and accessibility modifications for everyone to join in the fun.

Love Local Art Shop

Art lovers and aficionados who want to shop and support local, look no further. Every weekend you can browse a new selection of unique and original artwork at the Love Local Art Shop, a charming pop-up shop built out of a shipping container. The selection of local art, made by Mississauga’s resident artists, ranges from jewelry to ceramics to glass art and more. There’s always something new so be sure to check back every weekend.

Share Your MCS Moment

The only thing better than making memories is immortalizing those memories forever with some fun photographs. That’s why Celebration Square has brought onsite two photos booths for you to step inside and snap some photos. Summer playlists have been created, so take a listen while you remember some of your favourite memories at Celebration Square. Once you’ve decided on your photos, you’re invited to share your most memorable one on social media by tagging #MCSMoment and @MCSevents.

Fountain at Celebration Square

Everyone knows about the fountain and splash pad at Celebration Square, which is one of the best spots to stay cool and beat the summer heat. The fountain is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., so grab your bathing suits, bring your family, and come out for some fun in the sun.

Celebrating 10 Years!

It’s Celebration Square’s birthday! To commemorate ten years and counting, local artist Bareket Kezwer has taken over the main stage with an immersive and vibrantly colourful mural. The theme for the mural is “Lovingly plant thought seeds in the garden of your mind.” Bareket is a local muralist, community engaged artist and facilitator, curator, cultural producer, creative director, and graphic designer. In 2017 she founded Women Paint, a street art jam celebrating the strength, resilience and diverse stories of women and non-binary artist and community members.
