I am so excited to announce that I am creating a fun Pavilion for Adults & Kids, for two upcoming large festivals coming this June at Ontario Place.

The Mac & Cheese festival is now running in it’s third year! They are the world’s largest Mac & Cheese Festival.
The BBQ Eats festival is a new event and will be showcasing ethnic bbq flavours from around the world.

I will be running the indoor gaming zone for both events. For five tokens each, you can buy the wristbands, and can access all of these activities.

We have some amazing Companies working with us to make this magical for the families. Some of them include: The Medieval Times Knights, Bricks 4 Kidz, Reptilia, A tween spa, a Floof Sandbox, and more!

Below are the dates and times for each festival!
Make sure to order your FREE admission tickets online (so you can attend an hour earlier than the festival starts)!

*Celebrating 60 with 50 Cent Admission (Oshawa)
12pm-4pm
Oshawa Museum

The land on which Henry House sits had been in the family for almost 100 years. Construction of the house took place circa 1840 by members of the Henry family and lived in by Thomas, his wife Lurenda and ten of their youngest children. When the family was no longer living in the home it was taken up by the Lakeview Park caretakers and finally became a Museum in 1960.

On this long weekend in May, we are celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Oshawa Historical Society and the opening of Henry House as a Museum with 50¢ admission – the same as it was in 1960!

Henry House and its Heritage Gardens will be open for tours on Monday May 22, from 12 – 4 pm. Museum staff will be on hand in period costume to answer questions, and garden tours will be available.

Only Henry House will be open this afternoon. Guy House and Robinson House as well as Henry House will be open on Sunday May 21 from 12 – 4 pm. Admission is by donation.

Cost- 50 cents
