. Carassauga Festival. Ontario’s largest multicultural festival. If you don’t mind large crowds and a cup that runneth over with a huge number of performances, colourful costumes and beautiful music, I highly recommend this as an almost one-stop sampler of what the Toronto area has to offer. In 2010 it included Africa, Canada, Caribbean, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, French Creole Islands, Germany, Greece, Guyana, Hawaii, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Italy, Latin America, Lebanon/Syria, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malaysia/Singapore, Malta, Mexico, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vietnam. This festival is centered around the Hershey Centre in Mississauga with some outlying pavilions like Germany and Malta accessible by free public buses. Indoor (air-conditioned) and outdoor areas (with tented pavilions), it includes classical, folk and fusion dances, music, martial arts, magic, standup comics, souvenirs, fancy dress, art, fashion show, and ethnic food. The Hershey Centre Sport Zone is at 5600 Rose Cherry Place (north off Matheson, one traffic light east of Kennedy). Fee: $10-$12 for a passport which includes entry to all pavilions and free parking for three days. Children 12 and under are admitted without charge. Tel. 905-615-3010.
