The Port Credit Business Improvement area is one of the MWF biggest supporters. With the MWF being the first festival to kick off the summer in Port Credit, the iconic red and white lighthouse, with a beaconing light, can be seen from miles around welcoming everyone who approaches.
Built in 1991 to replace the original lighthouse destroyed by fire in 1936, it is a working lighthouse visible from 15 miles out on Lake Ontario (Port Credit is an international border entry point into Canada by water). The deck offers a great view of the Credit River, as well as the beautiful harbour and the village of Port Credit. The Lighthouse is the most photographed building in Mississauga and is home to the Port Credit Business Association. The Lighthouse symbolizes our invitation to you to enjoy everything Port Credit has to offer!
