Streetsville Memorial Park is abuzz with activity this weekend, as it kicked off the Bread and Honey Festival in its 45th year. Since 1973, this annual festival happens in the first weekend in June, in the Village of Streetsville, Mississauga, Ontario
This year the emphasis is on helping grow the bee population which has been dwindling due to several reasons. Pearson International Airport has donated 15,000 wild flower seeds that is being distributed at the festival. The festival, which has been named to Festivals and Events Ontario’s 2017 top 100 list, is marking a milestone this year. The focus is also to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary.
There’s a singing contest, Teens Got Talent at the mainstage. Make sure you do not miss the talented line-up of live performers for children and adults alike; a wide selection of carnival rides, games and hands-on educational demonstrations for the whole family… and of course, FREE Bread and Honey.
Many fun activities including live entertainment, a fishing derby, food vendors, a petting zoo, axe throwing, a flight simulator are all part of the festival.
The Bread & Honey Festival continues to be the manifestation of Streetsville’s roots and culture. The Lions Club, Rotary Club and Kismen Club have been huge participants and contributors of the Festival since the beginning. Over the years, the festival has continued to attract people of all ages, from all over GTA.
