With beautiful lakeside venues, Harbourfront Centre captures the best of summer where community, creativity and connection thrive. For nearly 50 years, Harbourfront has been the place for bold, diverse programming, and this summer is no exception.  

Come to the waterfront to enjoy live music performances, theatre and dance, all led by award-winning Canadian and international artists. Whether you participate in our free dance workshops, visit the art galleries for the latest exclusive exhibitions, watch artists craft their glassworks in our Craft & Design studio, grab a bite with friends at the Food Lab or wander across our 10-acre waterfront destination, Harbourfront Centre brings the best of summer to Toronto.  

See below for highlights of the events happening throughout the summer, most of which are free!
