Summer Festivals & Events

The summers are short but the days are long, so we northwesterners make the most of that time with a variety of fun outdoor festivals. Want to groove to live music, eat your way through the day, shop, drink something delicious, see cool cars, or experience history and culture in a deeper way? Well, there’s a festival for that! Whether you road trip around Northwestern Ontario, pop over the border, or stay right here in TBay, this issue of The Walleye gives you the inside scoop on 14 of the best festivals the summer of 2023 has to offer.

July 2023: Summer Festivals & Events

Given our relatively short period of hot weather here in the Northwest, it can easily seem like the summer months go by way too quickly. It also means that those months are always jam-packed with festivals, events, and things to do that highlight the music, art, food, and culture of Thunder Bay and the surrounding region. Returning last year after a COVIDinduced hiatus, we once again turn over our July issue’s cover story to the summer festival guide, shining the spotlight on 14 amazing events— not only in Thunder Bay, but also within a day’s drive—that you’re surely going to want to check out. And since a day out isn’t truly complete without something good to eat, we’ll also show you four local food truck vendors who have put their kitchens on wheels, taking their delectable dishes to these local festivals.
