Summer Memories are Made in Bronte

Glorious summer days are here. It’s a season of simple pleasures and endless possibilities – and Bronte has something for everyone.

We’ve got lakeside concerts, a Library ON THE GO book bike, cultural festivals, unmatched views of the harbour, plentiful patios and one-of-a-kind shops. Summer in Bronte is one big bucket list adventure – and we still have a month to go.

We are so excited to share our bucket list ideas that our fingers can’t type quickly enough. Print the list below, take a screenshot, stick it on your fridge, share it with a friend – whatever works for you – and experience a summer of memory making in Bronte!

  • Walk the harbour with a frozen treat (try Flavour FoxChestnut’s Café or Duckie’s Dairy Bar)
  • Find a new way to get active – walk, cycle, run, swim or paddle
  • Cycle the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail – Bronte is the perfect spot to pause or end your cycling journey
  • Explore the history of the lands from an Indigenous perspective and walk the Moccasin Trail
  • Dip your toes in the water at Bronte Beach Park or along the Vista Promenade
  • Spend quality time by the water – build sandcastles at the beach, pack a picnic lunch or paddle the lake at sunset
  • Try new cuisine – we have the best restaurants in Oakville, if we do say so ourselves
  • Share a meal on a patio with a friend
  • Dance the night away at one of our outdoor concerts
  • Sip a coffee under the sails and relax at one of our blue bistro tables (try Taste of Colombia, Peach Coffee Co. – or, of course, Tim Hortons or McDonald’s)
  • Take part in the family-friendly lakeside literacy programs by the OPL on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, stop by our Library ON THE GO book bike and grab a book to read under our majestic willow tree
