lakeshore mardi gras

There’s no need to venture out to New Orleans to enjoy Mardi Gras, when you can do it right here in Etobicoke! The 10th Annual Lakeshore Mardi Gras hits Colonel Samuel Smith Park the first weekend of August.

We’re excited for the four-day festival that has something for everyone of all ages. There’s going to be midway games, live music and a great variety of food and drink. Art, jewelry, and crafts will be available for purchase by a variety of different artists. For the younger crowd, face-painting and games will be on the agenda.

One of the best features of the festival is definitely the roster of entertainers. On Friday night, audiences will be thrilled with a performance by The Reason. Rik Emmett of Canadian rock band Triumph and Jarvis Church of Philosopher Kings take the stage on Saturday and Sunday respectively. Local artists Robin Banks, Chuck Jackson and The All Stars, and Johnny Max wrap up the festival on Monday!

The much-anticipated Lakeshore Mardi Gras is the event of the summer! It’s a perfect opportunity make new friends, enjoy family time and cultivate community spirit.

The 10th Annual Lakeshore Mardi Gras will be held from Friday, August 2nd to Monday, August 5th at Colonel Samuel Smith Park.
