After a two-year hiatus, Festivals and Events Ontario is back with its 2023 list, featuring the top 100 festivals and events in the province that we enjoy yearly.

Back for 2023, the list features festivals and events that “excel within the industry” after being submitted by FEO members and judged by an independent panel.

Voted entries are split up by region – 13 regions to be exact. That includes the likes of Southwest Ontario Tourism Region, Niagara Falls and Wine Country Tourism Region, and of course, the Greater Toronto Area Tourism Region which we will dive into next.

And not to be biased but if you’ve ever experienced a festival in Toronto, you know we’re home to some of the best around.
