Moon Landing Festival

SPECIAL EVENT

Moon Landing Festival

Date: Saturday, July 20 (2-11pm) & Sunday, July 21 (2-6pm)
RAIN OR SHINE
Price: FREE

At 10:56 pm, on Sunday, July 20, 1969, the limits of human possibility expanded when humans first set foot on the moon. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of that milestone, we’re hosting a two-day festival, featuring live music, dancing, a food fair, tours, an artisan market, family-friendly activities, and art inspired by the moon!

 

Bring family and friends for lunar activities, including your chance to make music by ‘playing’ the craters of the moon, special $10 admission to the exhibition The Moon: A Voyage Through Time, a light display, and evening stargazing with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.

 

Don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes (or go barefoot) while you enjoy free dance classes. Then put your new moves to the test as a vibrant mix of Toronto’s best established and up-and-coming musicians take the stage!

 

A shuttle bus will loop from downtown to the Museum with stops at:

Double Tree by Hilton (108 Chestnut St.) · The Neighbourhood Organization (18 Thorncliffe Park Drive) · Ontario Science Centre (770 Don Mills Rd.) · Aga Khan Museum (77 Wynford Drive)
