who we are

about us

The Mississauga Music Walk of Fame is located in Port Credit Memorial Park in Mississauga Ontario. It was founded in 2012 by the late Mississauga City Councilor Jim Tovey, a former rock musician who received his own star on The Walk following his untimely death in 2017.

The Mississauga Music Walk of Fame honours local musicians who have made a significant impact on the city, Music Industry builders and innovators, and Mississauga’s very own International Superstars.

In 2012, Councilor Tovey and the founding Walk of Fame Committee comprised of local music historians and enthusiasts John Stewart, Mike Beggs and Ric Cooper and performer/producer Patti Jannetta joined with the Port Credit BIA, the Southside Shuffle Blues Festival, sponsors and enthusiastic supporters to bring the first Mississauga Music Walk of Fame to life. Inducted that first year were, the great Oscar Peterson, the legendary Ronnie Hawkins, opera singer Krisztina Szabo, and Triumph drummer and industry entrepreneur Gil Moore. 

What a way to kick off a Walk of Fame!

Since then we have seen the induction of stars such as George “Strombo” Stroumboulopoulos, Rik Emmett from Triumph, Denny Doherty from Mamas and Papas, Jeff Healey, Liberty Silver,  Randy Lennox former President Bell Media, Phil X from Bon Jovi  many more. These are all internationally renowned individuals with interesting stories and remarkable careers.

Please take the opportunity to visit the Mississauga Music Walk of Fame. Now it its 11th year with 31 Inductees’ names forever engraved on granite plaques installed in the walking path of Memorial Park, Port Credit, the musical hub of Mississauga.

The Walk of Fame Committee wishes to thank all sponsors, funders, volunteers and the public for their support and look forward to welcoming you to the 2022 Mississauga Music Walk of Fame Induction Ceremony on Sunday Sept 11th at 11am.

The Future

Coming to the Mississauga Music Walk of Fame in 2022 and beyond will be an innovative, exciting, and game-changing new vision we call, the Enhanced Walk Experience!

We began working with students and faculty from Sheridan College back in 2020 with the ambition to make your visit to the Walk more fulfilling and interactive. This effort gave rise to an extremely successful Sheridan Capstone project for 3 outstanding students who graduated in 2022.

Imagine standing over the Star of legendary jazz pianist Oscar Peterson and being able to access a window into his accomplishments and life story simply by hovering your smartphone over his Star and voila!! You will open the door to an animated bio, music, photos, and even video.

This September 11th we open the door to future technology and experience which will bring our Mississauga Music legends to life before your eyes! Don’t miss it!
