Your city, your summer.


BRAMPTON, ON – On Saturday, June 10, from 11 am to 9 pm, the City of Brampton will officially kick off summer with CeleBrampton, its annual event recently recognized as a Top 100 Festival and Event in Ontario.

As Brampton strives to think bigger about its future, CeleBrampton has been reimagined this year, focusing on the city’s growth and diversity, and how to engage with the individuals that make Brampton so vibrant. The event will carry on the tradition of providing all-day, non-stop fun for attendees, complete with activities, food, culture, heritage and arts.

“CeleBrampton is an extraordinary annual event for our city when our downtown comes alive with free fun and games for all ages,” said Mayor Linda Jeffrey “With many new attractions added to this year’s CeleBrampton, I invite you to bring your family and friends to explore our downtown and be entertained by great music, enjoy global flavours and local cuisine, and learn about how our city is growing into an exciting urban centre.” 

11 am to 4 pm
