What is Rebel?

Sauga youth together with the City of Mississauga, have created Rebel - a weeklong youth-led festival of creative expression and community involvement. Rebel takes place every year from May 1 to May 7 during National Youth Week and National Youth Arts Week. Together, we took control of hosting more than 300 FREE events featuring over 400 artists for over 8000 people across the city in 2015. Rebel is a festival of music, film, the arts, culture, sport and opportunities to make a difference. Our events are a way for us to enlist one another to have an awesome time and show Sauga who we are!

We are passionate.
We take a stance.
We inspire positive change.
We challenge the status quo.
We are dynamic.
We make things happen.

Join the Rebellion

Together, let's make this year's Rebel Week the best it's ever been! Join us in empowering more Sauga youth to take part in a weeklong event festival that is hosted by youth, for youth.
