Top 5 Free Relaxing Outdoor Events in Mississauga


Published July 8, 2014 at 9:09 pm


Mississauga is the city of festivals and events. While some events can attract up to 100,000 people, others are more intimate and invite you to just chill and watch an open-air movie or listen to live music by the lake or a historical house. Here are the top five free chill events in Mississauga:

Movies at Celebration Square

Every Thursday evening over the summer, hundreds of people (or more, depending on the movie and the weather) gather at Celebration Square to watch movies on the big screens. Some of the movies shown include Star Wars The Force Awakens to Never Ending Story. Come out at 6:30 for the LIVE at Celebration Square show to see live cooking demos from the best chefs in the city! On a beautiful night, there is nothing better than grabbing a blanket and laying down on the soft artificial turf for a free open-air movie.

Every Thursday until September 1, 2016

Rotary Movies at Port Credit

Port Credit is a great place for a date in Mississauga, and a great start to any date would be an open-air movie right by the water. Every Friday over the summer they will be showing movies at Port Credit Memorial Park. So before hitting the bar or lounges with your date, start off with an open-air movie in Port Credit.

Starts: July 8, 2016

On the Verandah – Concert Series

Mississauga has quit a few historical buildings and one of the nicest is the Benerares Historic House.  Every Friday over the summer they have outdoor summer concerts. You will hear all types of music, including jazz, brass, cultural music, covers, orchestras and so much more. You donate what you can at this event, but I’m sure once you have a great night out your fin will be well spent.

Starts: Every Friday at 7:30pm until August 26, 2016

Sunset Concert Series

The Sunset Concert Series takes place every Sunday by the Port Credit lakefront during the summer. Listen to all types of live music from Latin, Jazz, Big Band, covers, swing, and folk. There is something for everyone. It’s a great way to end a weekend.

Port Street Market Events
