Downtown Oakville will come alive with cultural events and activities every Saturday from June to October thanks to Oakville’s Summer Cultural Connection, a new summer events initiative launched by the Town of Oakville and supported by a generous $40,000 donation from Union Gas.

“Oakville is a community where culture engages, inspires and thrives,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “Thanks to the generous donation from Union Gas, residents will have the opportunity to enjoy Summer Cultural Connection events throughout the summer.”

The Summer Cultural Connection will include:

  1. a farmers’ market and creative cultural programming featuring town partners and local organizations at Centennial Square and on Navy Street every Saturday from June 6 to October 31 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  2. weekend recreational events at Lakeside Park
  3. a series of exciting pop-up events related to monthly themes of recreation, sport, culture, and heritage.

“At Union Gas we work hard to share our success with the more than 400 communities we serve,” said Mark Emmanuel-Egbedeyi, district manager, Hamilton Halton, Union Gas. “We’re thrilled to support the Town of Oakville’s Summer Cultural Connection which supports the advancement and development of cultural programming that helps make the community even more vibrant.”

The town invites any interested local arts, cultural, heritage, sport or recreation organizations to participate in showcasing their cultural activities as part of the Summer Cultural Connection.
