SoundBites Delivers Ontario Music and Eats at Their Best

Aug 23, 2017

Mix one part iconic Canadian talent, with a heaping spoonful of the best in food truck cuisine, add a dash of fabulous local artists and what you’ve got is a recipe for a sizzling summer night on the Square.

SoundBites is back in its fourth year on Mississauga Celebration Square and it’s featuring a few new elements for both foodies and music lovers alike.

The City has partnered with the Ontario government's ONtour concert series, which features free shows across the province to celebrate Ontario’s 150th anniversary.

The concert, on September 2, will feature the iconic and multiple Juno award winning, artist, Tom Cochrane along with Juno award winner, Anjulie and Toronto’s own pop/soul phenomenon and Warner Music recording artist, Francesco Yates.
The Mississauga Music Stage, in the amphitheatre, will whet your appetite with some homegrown musical flavours; featuring performances by Jammers Waffle House, Matt Zaddy and an acoustic set by Ill Scarlett.

To keep with the vibe of the evening, the more than 20 food trucks will feature locally-inspired dishes or locally-sourced ingredients. A full list of participating food trucks can be found on the Celebration Square website.

The event, which attracts more than 30,000 visitors annually, will be hosted by Global News Consumer SOS Reporter, Sean O’Shea.

Food Stories
When the Museums of Mississauga recently began asking residents to share their stories about living in Mississauga, food was a theme that popped up immediately and often. To combine the community’s love of food with the SoundBites event, Celebration Square has partnered with the museums to compile a new cook book entitled A Taste of Mississauga.

To participate, residents are invited to submit their favourite recipes, via email to or onsite during the event. Select recipes will be made into a cookbook to be shared with the community later this year. Follow @MCSEvents and @SaugaMuseums for further information.
