Keeping the festival’s tradition alive
Local community culture. That’s the core of the Downtown Milton Street Festival. A culture of tradition in that every year the Town of Milton and the Downtown Milton Business Improvement Area (DMBIA), puts on this event which has become a staple in the community for more than a decade having grown to attract over 90,000 attendees, and serving as an unofficial kickoff to summer.
This event is designed for families of the community to enjoy time together, surrounded by local artists and entertainers including The Spoons, The Decent Blokes, and The Cheer Sport Sharks, among many others. In addition to the live entertainment, the festival will feature food trucks, a kid’s zone, and a wide variety of featured local vendors as well as businesses from the downtown core.
Annual attendance is estimated at more than 90,000 people with many also taking part for the opportunity to participate in community engagement with their fellow residents, business owners, community groups, neighbours and visitors. Regardless of your age, it’s a celebration to understanding the different cultures that make up the growing Milton area.
ROCKWOOL is proud to be supporting the event which has been named one of the top 100 festivals in Ontario (2014, 2015, 2017) according to Festival and Events Ontario, and helps to drive local tourism for the community of Milton as the presenting sponsor of the event for the second consecutive year.
