Join us for the 2011 Big Daddy Festival

Halton Hills Big Daddy Festival

Mums ‘n Chums is thrilled to be media partner for the 2011 Big Daddy Festival in our hometown of Halton Hills! Check out the amazing variety of fun activities for your family to enjoy together this Father’s Day weekend!


With a name like Mums ‘n Chums, it’s common for some to believe we only support and cater to moms. However, we understand very well just how important dads are in the lives of their families, and we’re always glad to see dads sign up as members and come out to our events. That is why we not only support dads too, but we’re also very proud to support the 2011 Big Daddy Festival in Halton Hills.

What better way to celebrate the amazing dads in our lives than with 3 days of family friendly activities right here in our own backyard? The Big Daddy Festival runs through Father’s Day weekend, from June 17 to 19th in Halton Hills, and includes the following schedule of events:

I founded Mums 'n Chums in 2009 after realizing that the area I live in was drastically underserviced as compared to surrounding areas for support and activities for growing families. Mums 'n Chums grew popular very quickly and I have been dedicated to nurturing that growth through frequent networking, social media engagement and in person meetups. By the end of its first year, Mums 'n Chums had close to 500 members and was receiving regular inquiries from fans outside of its service area, asking when we would be expanding to serve them as well. After much careful research and polling, I expanded the site in May of 2011 to cover the entire North end of the GTA (from Cambridge to Markham), areas I believe are still receiving far less attention than they deserve from other sites and family services. We also changed the focus from small scale local mom and tot meetups to more of an informative purpose, closing down our forum and adding several talented contributors to the blog. We do still offer several large scale family events per year, such as our popular Birthday Bash events and our Holiday Bash in December. Our contests have also become a member favourite, and we strive to offer amazing prizes from trusted brands like Babies R Us, La Roche Posay, Johnson's Baby and many more. In March of 2016, after months of work spent migrating all of the site's content to a new platform, Mums 'n Chums re-launched with its fresh, new look. The changes and expansion have proven a great success and we're still getting inquiries from several other cities within the Greater Toronto Area, whom we have decided to serve as well. I have built this site and its' reputation carefully and look forward to continuing its growth!
