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.

I have a bunch of friends who are coming to the concert with me. Are they welcome at the Tailgate party even though they are not Maplereefers?

Can't wait! Dee

Its my understanding that tailgating in its truest sense is not allowed. This is why the beach party has been scheduled. That being said...I can't wait to see the van!

Any parking cost for tailgating at Echo Beach that afternoon and evening while the concert is on.The van is going to be dressed to look like a shark. Fins Up!

As President of the West-Manitoba Prairie ParrotHead Association, ( actually I am just a pharm boy ) I look forward to meeting many more Canadian ParrotHeads. I'll be wearing the big Red Hat !!!!

Phans, as you know ain't no drinkin' man. I tried it once and it got me highly irregular, but we will soon commence to do the bear dance. Where's my still?

Unfortunately, the commute from Alberta is a bit too far to travel.  The Toronto Maple Reefers have extensive experience with Tail Gate Parties.  Be sure that if you are planning to Tail Gate, do it with the Maple Reefers.  You will not regret your decision and have a whale of a time while you're at it.
