TIM HORTONS SOUTHSIDE SHUFFLE - Port Credit's Blues & Jazz Festival

Since its inception in 1999 the Tim Hortons Southside Shuffle Blues and Jazz Festival has set new standards for excellence and growth, earning accolades from its peers, entertainers, sponsors, media, attendees and local businesses. From the beginning, Mayor Hazel McCallion has given us her unwavering support and dedication, endorsing the festival - and the City of Mississauga - as a world-class destination. She has appeared onstage, dancing with the Downchild Blues Band and can often be seen around the festival, enjoying the music and interacting with fans. Watching her dance down Lakeshore Road to open the Trinity Street Shuffle on Saturday afternoon is a particular highlight of the weekend and she is definitely a fan favourite as she dances her way through Port Credit..

Mayor McCallion retires in 2014, and thus ends the course of her 36-year reign as the leader of Canada's sixth largest city. She has left an undeniable mark of greatness on our city and we would like to thank her for her passionate and dedicated service. Her support for the festival has been incredible and so from all of us here at the Tim Hortons Southside Shuffle - the fans, musicians, sponsors and volunteers - Thank You Hazel!

We'll save you a spot every year so you can come dancing!
