MISSISSAUGA MUSIC WALK OF FAME

Recognizing the careers and achievements of our local music legends.

OUR
HISTORY

Mississauga’s Music Walk of Fame in Port Credit Memorial Park was established in 2012 by the late Councillor Jim Tovey to recognize the amazing musical talents that have come out of Mississauga.

Jim invited local music historians and aficionados John Stewart, Mike Beggs and Ric Cooper and artist Patti Jannetta to form the first committee. The team vetted the applications, selected the inductees and planned the induction ceremony.

Councillor Tovey, the Committee, the Port Credit BIA, the Southside Shuffle Blues Festival, sponsors and enthused supporters came together to bring the first Mississauga Music Walk of Fame to life.

Inductees had their names forever engraved on granite plaques that are installed in the walking path of Port Credit Memorial Park. Port Credit has a reputation as the musical hub of Mississauga. Therefore, it was fitting to establish the Music Walk of Fame there as well.

Tragically Councillor Jim Tovey passed away unexpectedly on January 15, 2018.

Last year, to honour the late Councillor Jim Tovey, Jim was the sole inductee for the Mississauga Music Walk of Fame.

The 2020 Ceremony was again hosted by the Southside Shuffle at Dave DeEyre Square on the Jim Tovey Memorial Stage. A large enthusiastic crowd joined with fans from as far away as California to celebrate iconic Mississauga superstars Phil X (Bon Jovi) and Prakash John (Alice Cooper) as they became the newest inductees to the Mississauga Music Walk of Fame.

The Mississauga Music Walk of Fame Committee thanks all Sponsors, Funders, Volunteers and the public for your support.
