The City is about to officially unveil a gem in downtown Mississauga. On Wednesday, June 22
at 9 a.m., Mayor McCallion and City councillors will hold their Council Meeting outdoors on
Mississauga Celebration Square. This may be the first time a City Council has ever conducted
their meeting in the open air. But, that isn't the only reason why this meeting is extra
special: It will serve as the official opening of the City's new state-of-the-art event
destination - a vibrant public square with a year-round line-up of free, outdoor events and
festivals, showcasing arts, cultural diversity and entertainment.
At the June 22 event, presentations will focus on how Mississauga Celebration Square became
what it is today - How the concept of Placemaking was used to develop a design using the
community's input. Why this is an ideal location for a major event venue. Why two separate
squares were turned into one large one. Those in attendance will enjoy these presentations,
about the features and plans for the Square, in high-quality digital pictures and sound.
The celebrations continue with a "Panera" boxed lunch which can be enjoyed at
bistro tables under patio umbrellas on the upper square. The Tom Barlow Band performs in the
redesigned, open-air amphitheatre and on-site performers will make this a lunch-time to
Join in the official opening ceremony when the City brings its Council Meeting outdoors.
Then, keep coming back, whether it's for a show, to mingle at a festival, meet a friend, grab a
bite or just relax. Experience it!
