Each year on the 1st weekend in June, the old town of Streetsville celebrates the passing of their town into the City of Mississauga, in 1973. The Bread & Honey Festival, now a three day event, started as a wake. The 2013 Bread and Honey Festival fun begins on Friday, May 31st and
runs through to Sunday, June 2nd. Each year, over 40,000 people come to
enjoy the bread supplied by the two remaining mills in town and honey
supplied by local businesses, as well as the parade, arts & crafts displays,
entertainment and a midway for young folks.
