Here's what's hot

Join us as we transform the Square Amphitheatre into a live children's theatre every Tuesday night in August. From Rock the Arts Puppets to Beauty and the Beast, watch and be dazzled as your favourite children stories are brought to life!

Whether you're a musician, spoken word artist, comedian or dazzling performer, the stage is yours! Share your craft or enjoy the great talent Mississauga has to offer at open mic nights on the Square, every Wednesday in August.

Canadian Celtic rock group Screeched Inn began over a decade ago as a trio. With a focus on tight three part harmony and audience interaction, they perfected their sound through classic rock, top 40, and country genres.
