Teddy Bears Picnic has been postponed to 2023 due to the uncertainty of the pandemic and associated measures, and the lead time required for event planning.

An afternoon Children's Concert will be presented in conjunction with the 2022 Live on the Waterfront Series for this audience.

Award-Winning Festival

Thousands of events are held every year in Ontario but only a select few are named to the 'Top 100 Ontario Festivals' list. Teddy Bears Picnic has been named to this prestigious list two times - most recently in 2019.
