As Harbourfront Centre continues to monitor the COVID-19 public health emergency, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 outdoor Summer Festival season, originally set to run from June 1 to September 7. While we work to support the Government of Ontario’s roadmap for reopening the province, we are exploring ways to safely bring you the stimulating arts programming you’ve come to expect during these challenging times.

A bold and innovative force in Canada’s cultural scene, we bring together brilliant new artists and art forms from around the world for a year-round roster of new and fan-favourite festivals and series.

No matter the season, our diverse and dynamic programming offers an eclectic experience of sights, sounds and flavours on Toronto’s scenic waterfront.
