Guide to Accessible Festivals & Outdoor Events

Submitted by Alfred Spencer, Accessibility Directorate of Ontario We’re pleased to share with you the attached copy of the recently updated, “Guide to Accessible Festivals & Outdoor Events.” The Guide has been updated to reflect recent changes to the government’s website. It was initially developed to assist in considering accessibility when planning the many community festivals and events that celebrated the countdown to the 2015 Toronto Pan/Parapan Am Games.

The easy-to-follow tips have made this guide a valuable resource of lasting relevance for festival and event planners across Ontario preparing to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation. We deeply appreciate the work of municipal and not-for-profit partners in advancing accessibility in Ontario and would welcome your help in circulating this updated guide widely to anyone who may benefit from the information. Please also help us by spreading the word through your organization’s communication channels. You can now order free copies in English or French from ServiceOntario Publications at or call 1-800-668-9938.
