The MARTYS | Past Winners

Arts excellence has been celebrated in Mississauga for the last 25 years.

The MARTYS have evolved since they first started, from new awards categories being added to the venue the awards show takes place at. What’s remained the same is MAC’s commitment to acknowledging excellence in the Mississauga Arts Community. We’d like to thank all past MARTY winners for their contributions to the arts.
