Celebrating its 23rd year, The Mississauga Waterfront Festival took place over the course of a 3-day weekend from June 15, 16 & 17 at Port Credit Memorial Park. A little rain did not stop people from attending and enjoying the live outdoor concerts, family activities, food and entertainment. The festival is recognized as Mississauga’s Signature Family and Friends event and has achieved a ranking as one of the Top 100 Festivals in Ontario for the past 13 years.
The MWF partners with local charitable and not-for-profit organizations and provides donations that help these organizations with their outreach programs. These organizations include: Lions Club, Scouts, Civitans, St. John Ambulance, Chinese Arts Organization, Community Living, Peel Family Services, Mississauga Heritage, and Mississauga Canoe Club.
Through the Sponsor a Child Program, the MWF also invites some 6,000 less fortunate families to attend the Festival as guests. These special guests are provided with a free meal, carnival rides, as well as enjoying the array of performers and have a weekend of fun. For some this experience is the highlight of their summer.
