WE’RE BACK!

This year we are eagerly anticipating the return of Mayfair in Rosedale Park, May 13th and 14th, the 75th anniversary since inception. Mayfair is a team effort and we want to recognize and thank Mayfair planning committee members for their continued hard work in preparations for this year’s event. Come join us. Mayfair provides an ideal opportunity to reconnect with friends, enjoy all the rides, food and drinks, and some great live entertainment at the beer garden.

What to Expect – FRIDAY:

  • AMAZING RIDES! Stomach-churning thrills for the big customers, as well as starter excitement for smaller folk! Experience some of Canada’s greatest carnival rides in Rosedale Park courtesy of World’s Finest Shows.
  • Friday BBQ -In addition to the popular Weber’s burgers and Maple Leaf All Natural hot dogs, Friday’s dinner menu is enhanced with delicious ribs from Summerhill Market. They are always a treat and sell out, so come early!
  • Main Stage Entertainment on Friday night in the Beer Garden – MegaCity Swing Band (6:00-7:30pm) followed by Governor Douglas (8:00-10:00pm)
  • The Mayfair Thrift! New this year, we’ll be shopping with a purpose — supporting Mayfair — while being eco-friendly and on-trend. We’re accepting donations from the community now, and will give them a new life at the event. Please click here to find out how to donate. Thank you!

BONUS! Redeem your World’s Finest Shows Rides Voucher for your Ride-all-Day Bracelet on Friday evening, and use it both days for many hours of riding fun (4 pm to 7:30 pm Friday, plus all day Saturday)!

What to Expect – SATURDAY:

  • AMAZING RIDES 2.0! If you didn’t redeem your ride voucher on Friday night, you can redeem the ride voucher all day Saturday until 4pm and enjoy the rides, using your ride bracelet. If you don’t have a ride bracelet, just buy Mayfair Tickets from the sellers in the park to go on the rides and play the midway games all day long.
  • Play the MIDWAY GAMES for a chance to win valuable prizes! A combination of familiar returning games like Krazy Fans, Strike Zone, and Buzz Wire, plus several new games, such as Mini All-Stars, Zap and Mole, and Corn Hole. All in the Marvelous Midway!
  • THE KIDDIE ZONE! A special place just for younger visitors inside the rink area with fun inflatables: Explore Sesame Street Playground, Nuclear Rush, and Deep Sea Plunge. Preschoolers, have some fun in the Wacky Kiddie Korner! The tiniest kids can try their luck (and win a guaranteed prize) at our historic favourites, the Fish Pond, Wacky Hair and Face Painting!  The Mooredale Summer Camp will be running the Gaga Ball inflatable game.
  • The Mayfair Thrift! New this year, we’ll be shopping with a purpose — supporting Mayfair — while being eco-friendly and on-trend. We’re accepting donations from the community now, and will give them a new life at the event. Please click here to find out how to donate. Thank you!

By 11:00, the BBQ’s will be serving scrumptious Webers burgers, Maple Leaf All Natural hot dogs, with “all the fixin’s”, cold drinks and Neal Bros. chips. Find the Food Court at the west end of the park south of the rink. The Beer Garden is located conveniently nearby, and there is plenty of free seating!
  • Free admission to the Beer & Wine Garden, staffed by the gang from Steam Whistle, joined this year by Georgian Bay Spirits and D’Ont Poke the Bear! Open Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm.  A perfect place to catch up with old friends.
  • Main stage entertainment line up: Noon hour, Celtic Quartet Old Man Flanagan’s Ghost, followed by guitarist, singer/songwriter Mark Rainey and closing the afternoon with local band “High Flyer”.
  • Free Bike and Stroller Valet Parking! Again this year, the whole family can bike to Mayfair! We’re offering free valet parking for bicycles throughout Mayfair. Our secure bike enclosure will be staffed by volunteers from Cycle Toronto, at the south-east end of the park, near Scholfield Avenue. Drop off your bike and have a worry-free time at Mayfair!
  • Track and Field! Fun for ages 1 to 13
  • Midway Bingo! Great prizes and lots of fun for everyone in the family.
  • Face Painting Booth! Magical transformations for just a few tickets!
  • Wacky Hair Salon! Crazy colours and sparkling tiaras!

Each year, Mayfair has two purposes: it’s a fundraiser for Mooredale and also a neighbourhood friend-raiser that strengthens connections in our community. We look forward to seeing you at Mayfair 2022.
