Courage Polar Bear Dip

Tuesday, January 1, 2019
12:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Coronation Park

Dive into 2019 by taking the plunge with hundreds of other dippers at the Courage Polar Bear Dip. Held at Coronation Park, dippers will show their courage by braving the icy waters of Lake Ontario to help provide clean water for developing countries.

Whether you come to dip or join the thousands of spectators, you can also enjoy live music and take in the exciting festival atmosphere with family and friends. Dippers and spectators alike are encouraged to dress in their craziest costumes to win prizes and maybe even make the news!
