A City Mobilizes: The Second World War in Toronto

September 21 and 22, 10 am to 5 pm 

Canada declared war in September of 1939, galvanizing the city’s military, civilian, industrial and commercial interests. Connecting Torontonians to the sacrifice of Canadians in the war, this event marks the 80th anniversary of mobilization, noting especially the contributions of women, Indigenous peoples and the Home Front. The 80th anniversary marks a great chance to pay homage to those veterans who are still with us. There will be ongoing presentations of material culture, food and dance as well as displays of period vehicles, uniforms and equipment throughout the weekend.

FREE admission all weekend
