Events in Oakville this weekend: May 6-8

0

For the first full weekend in May, there is good weather and Mother’s Day on Sunday!

There’s so much to do in Oakville – it’s the busiest weekend of 2022 so far. Here is our full list of events for this weekend, May 6-8, 2022.

If you’re looking for Oakville events every weekend, you no longer need to search multiple websites; we have researched them all for you. We want you to spend your time going to an event, not looking for it.

There is very little chance of rain this weekend, with mostly continuous sun and cloud throughout the weekend. There will be a steady easterly wind for the next three days, but temperatures are now consistently (and eventually) above freezing, even at night.

With the low but noticeable presence of COVID-19 in the community, remember to be safe and follow safety guidelines when going out. Although masks are no longer necessary in most places, it is still a welcome precaution for better protection in populated areas and places.
