The Streetsville Bread and Honey festival is the pride and joy of Mississauga. Thousands and thousands of local residents attend this event each year, making it one of the most historical events in the province of Ontario.
The Streetsville Bread and Honey festival originated due to the many flourmills that made Streetsville what it is today. There are still two prominent mills, Kraft Canada and ADM Milling Ltd. that operate today. With many apiaries existing locally at the time, organizers thought it was only natural to add honey too.
In 1990, the Streetsville Bread and Honey festival became a weekend event, with happenings on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This year, the Streetsville bread and honey festival will be held from June 6-8, and guests can expect more fun than ever with many musical talents performing at the natural amphitheatre that is located in Streetsville’s Memorial Park. Also included is a carnival, which features rides, concessions, games and more. There is even a beer garden available to over the duration of the 3 days. If you can only attend one of the three days, then makes sure it’s the Saturday, which features the Bread and Honey Parade. If you can’t make that or you just want more, then check out the bread and honey booth, which offers FREE honey and bread. It really doesn’t get much better than that.
Tickets for this event are as low as $2 if you only attend on the Friday night. If one night is not enough, then be sure to get a weekend pass, which cost $3 for children under 12 and seniors or $7 for everyone else. Sunday passes are again $3 for children and seniors and $5 for adults.
