as we virtually celebrate 10 incredible years on Toronto’s Waterfront

10TH ANNIVERSARY
FESTIVAL UPDATE

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions on large gatherings, we made the difficult decision to cancel the return of the World’s Largest Rubber Duck during the summer of 2020. 

However, as we approach the end of the year, we wanted to do something special for our 10th anniversary and release a highlight video celebrating the past decade on the waterfront! Check it out HERE.

In addition to the video release, we are taking a trip down memory lane for the next 10 weeks (starting November 3) on our social media channels. From tall ships to flying dogs, an aqua circus and Mama Duck, see how the festival transformed Toronto’s waterfront year after year by following us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Join in the fun and share your favourite festival memories from the past decade using #towaterfrontfest!

Rubber ducky, you’re the one! 
 
🐥 This week for our 10th anniversary countdown we are waddling back to 2017 when we welcomed The World’s Largest Rubber Duck to Toronto’s Waterfront for the ONTARIO 150 Tour! 
 
🐤 Over the past 10 years, there have been many memorable moments, but none quite like the Duck’s visit. 
 
🐣 Standing 61 ft tall and weighing 30,000lbs, Mama Duck made a splash on the #TOwaterfront when she floated into the Toronto harbour for Canada’s 150th anniversary. She drew over 750,000 visitors and brought an economic impact of $7.6M for the province of Ontario!  
 
Other quackin’ good programming included:
 
💃 Rhythm of the Nation
An interactive performance that invited audiences to discover Canada’s rich diversity through music and dance.
 
🇨🇦 The West Coast Lumberjack Show 
This all-Canadian show featured professional lumberjack athletes performing chain saw carving, axe throwing, tree climbing and log rolling.
 
🛍 The Waterfront Artisan Market presented by @towaterfront & the @hyundaicanada shuttle.
 
Drop a 🐥 in the comments if you saw Mama Duck in person and had a Ducking good time!
