Last Blast of Summer at Canada's Wonderland

Since late April, the days have been full of family fun in the sun and A LOT of funnel cake. Guests have been enjoying all-new attractions, record-breaking rides, splash zones and waterslides, live entertainment, festivals and even Celebration Canada 150 - a month-long homage to Canada’s birthday. To say this season was jam-packed is an understatement. Even though summer is winding down, we’re not ready to close this chapter on the 2017 season!

Here are the top three events happening over the Labour Day long weekend at the Park, promising the last blast you’re looking for:

1. Food Truck Festival: September 2 and 3

Beep beep - the 3rd Annual Food Truck Festival is rolling into Canada’s Wonderland! This festival will be taking over the Action Zone area on Saturday, September 2 and Sunday, September 3, from 12pm – 10pm. 

We’re going to take you on a unique culinary experience with 15 local food trucks taking part from all over the GTA. That’s not all. You can also enjoy performances by the talented Mike Walmsley Band and Stacey Renee.

Sounds yummy? Learn more about the Food Truck Festival and to purchase your Daily Tickets or 2018 Season Pass click here.

2. Season Passholder Appreciation Weekend: September 2, 3 and 4

We want to show some love and appreciation to our dedicated Season Passholders. Between Saturday, September 2 and Monday, September 4, Passholders will receive exclusive perks and discounts for merchandise and games.

Season Passholders will also receive access to some of our most thrilling attractions during special Early Ride Times over the weekend. Leviathan, Behemoth, and our all-new ride, Soaring Timbers, are the best ways to cap off your summer of fun and make more memories at the Park.

Learn more about SP Appreciation Weekend and purchase your discounted Bring-A-Friend tickets (as low as $23.99) here.

3. Long Weekend Fireworks: September 3

Go out with a bang during the Park’s last blast of summer! Our annual Labour Day long weekend fireworks display is on Sunday, September 3 at 10pm* (weather permitting). This show is approximately 30 minutes and features a unique pyrotechnic design and an original soundtrack that is known to draw crowds from all over Toronto/Greater Toronto Area.

It’s also the final weekend to take in one of the many great shows at the park including Cirque Canadien, Chinese Acrobats, Flying Frontenacs, Charlie Brown’s Happy Campers and Starlight – Northern Reflections.

It’s true that time flies when you’re having fun. We hope to cap off a fantastic summer with all of you this Labour Day weekend!
