Mississauga’s Music Walk of Fame at Port Credit Memorial Park was established in 2012 by the late city Councillor Jim Tovey. This ceremony recognizes the amazing musical talents that have come out of Mississauga.
In the past, four inductees had their names forever engraved on granite plaques that are installed in the walking path of Port Credit Memorial Park. Port Credit has a reputation as the musical hub of Mississauga, therefore, it was fitting to establish the Music Walk of Fame there as well.
Councillor Jim Tovey was a passionate musician, he inspired the piano music keys cross-walk at Hurontario and Lakeshore Rd., and you could always find him on stage singing at a Port Credit festival, or restaurant! This year, to honour the impact Councillor Tovey has made within the arts, culture, and music community in Mississauga and Ward One, Jim will be the sole inductee for the Mississauga Music Walk of Fame.
We would like to invite the public to the induction ceremony which will be held on Sunday, July 22 2018 in Port Credit Memorial Park from 3:00-4:00 PM.
