Located in downtown Mississauga, Celebration Square is an open-air public square, urban park and the City’s premier venue for outdoor events.
Celebration Square attracts over 750,000 visitors each year and is home to hundreds of free annual festivals and events.
Visitors can relax with a book, splash in the fountain in the summer or skate during the winter months, stay connected with free Wi-Fi, grab a bite to eat or enjoy a diverse mix of activities such as festivals, concerts, movies, fitness classes and more.
In 2007, the City broke ground to join the two previous squares in the area into one expansive space. Completed in 2011, Celebration Square is a multi-purpose, state-of-the-art outdoor venue with a covered main stage, amphitheatre, trellised market area, greenspace, turf grass lawn, large reflecting pool and fountain / ice rink in the winter, glass pavilion and terrace.
As a result of its transformative impact on public spaces in the downtown neighbourhood, the Square has been a recipient of the City’s prestigious urban design awards. Its dynamic line-up of events have helped with contributing to the transformation of the neighbourhood and downtown into a vibrant, diverse and unique cultural space.
The Square has also been recognized with the Rick Hansen Award for addressing or overcoming accessibility issues, having accessibility features, improving quality of life for people with disabilities and being an example of best practices for others.
