Coronation Park


Join hundreds of dippers and thousands of spectators at Coronation Park in Oakville as they take the plunge into the icy cold waters of Lake Ontario to help provide clean water in developing countries through World Vision Canada.

Whether you come to The Courage Polar Bear Dip to enjoy the live music and festival atmosphere with family and friends, take part in the dip as a wild way to ring in the New Year or join us dressed in your craziest costume to win prizes and later see yourself on the news, it is all for a great cause!

Net proceeds from the Courage Polar Bear Dip have been given to World Vision Canada since 1995. In that time over $1,704,000 has been raised and has funded clean water projects around the world.
