After a 2-year hiatus, we are very excited to welcome everyone back to the Rabba Fine Food Street Shuffle on Saturday, September 10th from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. 20 bands from Mississauga and throughout Ontario will get you dancing in the streets and exploring the Village of Port Credit and its lovely waterfront. With our ticketed main stage and two free stages at Memorial Park, The Rabba Street Shuffle and music in the clubs there is certainly something for everyone to enjoy.
Don’t forget our Beggar’s Blues banquet featuring Stony Plain recording artists the Hogtown All Stars with special guests the amazing Quisha Wint, Mississippi’s Stan “Dead End Street” and from Hamilton, Garnetta Cromwell. It’s the perfect way to kick off your weekend of great music and tickets are available at southsideshuffle.ca.
I would very much like to thank our many sponsors and grant partners, the Port Credit BIA and the City of Mississauga for making our festival possible. A huge thanks to our incredible Southside Shuffle Board of Directors, headed by our chair Kristine Kane and staff headed by Corinne Jardine. We are all so happy to be back at full capacity and look forward to a fabulous weekend, so get on your dancing shoes and come out and support the park which is fully licensed and the vendor village that is sure to please! Eat, drink and enjoy it all but please stay safe!
