Event Description

 ECHO BEACH PARTY - Ontario Place

Saturday, July 16 , 11 am till 5:30 pm

Admission : FREE!!!!


The Toronto Maplereefers will be hosting a Jimmy Buffett pre-concert party at Ontario Place's Echo Beach.

Echo Beach is located at the east end of Ontario Place, east of the Molson Amphitheater.

The fun will start around 11:oo am and end when the gates to the concert open.  DJ Rocky and Tropical Daze will be providing the entertainment, playing summer songs you all remember from summers past, plus some "songs you know by heart" 

This is a parrotkeets friendly event. There will be vendors selling food and beverages. There will also be licensed vendors providing parrotheads with beer and margaritas.


Stay tuned as more info becomes available.

For our out of province guests, unlike the U.S. amphitheaters, which are stand alone venues, Molson Ampitheater is located inside Ontario Place Park. Past concerts at this venue were held in June and September when the park was closed. With the concert being held on a weekend in July, parking at the park will be limited and "US style tailgate parties" are not allowed. There is additional parking at the CNE on the north side of Lakeshore Boulvard.

Hi!  Thank you for membership.  I am coming from Rochester, NY with two girlfriends, one being a "Buffett Virgin."  Having been to many other Buffett Shows in the US, I did not think ahead to check on the tailgating policy at the Molson Amphitheatre. . . until last night.  So when I saw this pre-show event, I was so happy!!  However, I do have a couple questions. . .What alcohol is sold inside the venue?  Is it only beer?  (That is fine for me, but some people can be picky . . hahaha.)  Also, should we bring blankets to sit on at this party?  Thanks again for the guidance!!

coming down from peterborough.  last time we saw Jimmy was bama breeze tour in Pittsburg Pa.  tailgating was unreal.  helped people parked next to us build tiki hut with texas mickeys of JD. rum and of course tequila.  too bad we can't do that here.

Count MuskokaParrot in! I'm bringing a friend who loves the Buffet-man but has never seen him in live action (nor has she experienced Parrot tailgate-apalooza. First time I saw Jimmy was at Kingswood Theatre at Wonderland, then twice at ACC and last time was in Las Vegas: can Echo Beach echo THAT party? last tailgate was subdued but fun at ON Place - great it's sanctioned inside. I'd like to do pre-party fun but have to rest up for that :). Will be PhinsUp from Muskoka late Friday night and pounding on Echo Beach to let me in by Noon Sat!

I have seen Jimmy in Detroit and the tailgating was incredible.  Do not even attempt to tailgate at Molson Amphitheatre.  Seen Dave Matthews several times at the venue and have also seen tailgaters tossed for having too much fun.  Stuff that is part of the experience in US venues is not allowed in Toronto.  This party  is a great alternative.  Bringing 2 people that have no idea what they are getting into.  See you around 4!  Anything special other then ourselves that we need to be aware of or bring?

Jan... chairs, YES, coolers, don't know. The worst that could happen is you might be asked to take it back to your car.  Ontario Place will have vendors in place to sell food and drinks.
