The Living with Wellness Arts Festival presented by TD at Celebration Square extended the message of wellness through holistic living, arts, and culture to the community. It is the unique community festival in the Greater Toronto Area that promotes wellness and collectively gives people the experience of leading a healthy life through yogic chanting, music, and arts. There was something to enjoy for all ages.

Keeping the cause and theme of wellness the festival was in support of Trillium Health Partners. The opening ceremony of the festival was in the presence of Consul General of India, Apoorva Srivastava, MP Melissa Lantsman, MPP Nina Tangri, MPP Deepak Anand, Peel Regional Police Deputy Chief Mark Dapat and Board Vice Chair Sumeeta Kohli with video messages from High Commissioner of India in Ottawa, Sanjay Verma and Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie.

Live Art on the Square was a refreshing addition by ten local community visual artists.
