What’s ON March Break

Annual Guide to March Break Events for Kids & Families

We’ve rounded up the top events for March Break 2019 in our family friendly events guide. Helping you to keep busy and entertained during the school break with places to go, and things to do for kids in and around the Toronto area. There are as many events indoors as out – and with a little warmer weather predicted in the GTA we think you’ll be wanting to do a bit of both and savour the fresh air! Find festivals, workshops, special exhibits and activities – we hope you have a week to remember and make some great family memories!
