MAC’s Events

MACs major events, The MARTY Awards and The Masquerade Ball, engage the community and showcase the amazing artists in Mississauga. We produce many other events throughout the year including concerts, exhibitions, conferences, and more. In 2020 we began producing virtual concerts and events including our highly successful 100th Birthday Tribute to Hazel McCallion.

The MARTY Awards

The Mississauga Arts Awards (The MARTYS) celebrate the greatest achievements in all disciplines of the arts in Mississauga. Each year, we celebrate with a red carpet gala award show event.

The Masquerade Ball

The Masquerade Ball is MAC’s annual themed fundraising gala. From the Carnival of Venice to the British Invasion, you might find yourself purchasing artwork and dancing to Mowtown music all night.
