MAC’s Events

MACs major events, The MARTY Awards and The MACsquerade Ball, engage the community and showcase the amazing artists in Mississauga. We produce many other events throughout the year including concerts, exhibitions, conferences, and more. In 2020 we began producing virtual concerts and events including our highly successful 100th Birthday Tribute to Hazel McCallion.

The MARTY Awards

The Mississauga Arts Awards (The MARTYS) celebrate the greatest achievements in all disciplines of the arts in Mississauga. Each year, we celebrate with a red carpet gala award show event.

The MACquerade Ball

The Masquerade Ball is MAC’s annual themed fundraising gala. From the Carnival of Venice to the British Invasion, you might find yourself purchasing artwork and dancing to Mowtown music all night.

Arts for Mental Health Conference

The Arts for Mental health (A4MH) Conference will bring frontline healthcare practitioners together with artists and arts groups, to explore how best to integrate the proven benefits of creative experiences into healthcare treatment options, for the most common and treatable forms of mental illness. The purpose of our conference is to inform, collaborate, and inspire by sharing knowledge and experience while building partnerships between healthcare professionals and arts organizations.
