Ontario Family Fishing Weekend 

July 2 - July 3 

Ontario Family Fishing Events is a province-wide event that has happened on three other weekends so far in the year. 

This event allows for residents to fish the beautiful waters of Ontario without the regular mandatory fishing regulations and license that are put in place to be able to legally fish in Ontario. 

This is a great time to introduce friends or family, especially the kids, to the world of fishing. 

A truly relaxing and perfect summer activity, fishing is the ultimate peaceful getaway amongst the more lively or adrenaline pumping summer activities. 

Free Concerts 

Throughout the summer, keep your eye out for cities in the Durham Region offering free concerts to enjoy a show. 

With artists from all over, you can find free concerts from Whitby to Oshawa, Pickering to Ajax, and much more. 

This is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of free live shows which are incredible in the summer, especially as most shows are held at outdoor venues, so you can enjoy the beautiful weather and some music.
