About the Awards

Celebrating artistic excellence in the Mississauga arts sector

The 2024 MARTY Awards will take place on June 26, 2024 at the Mississauga Convention Centre

The Mississauga Arts Awards (The MARTYS) are the Mississauga Arts Council’s annual award celebration honouring outstanding individual and organizational contributions to the arts and cultural activity in our city.  Each year we seek to recognize honourees whose work helps transform and advance our communities through art. For the last 28 years, the MARTYS have been the city’s most distinguished red-carpet event for recognizing established and emerging artists.

Artistic Excellence Awards celebrate Emerging and Established artists in their specific discipline, while Community Arts Awards celebrate those who are committed to our arts community – the Lifetime Achievement Award, Hazel McCallion Volunteer of the Year Award, Laurie Pallett Patron of the Arts Award, and more.
