Downtown Milton proudly celebrates its rich history and over half of our downtown buildings have a heritage interest. From Waldie’s Blacksmith Shop to restaurants and shops operating in 19th century buildings, Downtown Milton boasts historical charm in a modern Context.

Downtown Milton has several large events in the summer that attract over 130,000 people from across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. The Downtown Milton Street Festival, the Downtown Milton Classic Car Show and others offer fun for the whole family with music, entertainment, vendors and more.

Other local activities take place throughout the year including the Milton Chamber of Commerce’s weekly Farmers’ Market from May to October as well as Easter, Holiday and Halloween events.
