Arts in Ajax
The Town of Ajax sponsors numerous special events throughout the year including the popular Music and Theatre in the Park series held every summer at Rotary Park. The biggest Ajax event is Home Week, which takes place in June. This week long festival starts with a parade down Harwood Avenue and includes a myriad of events for the whole family. Home Week is capped off by a fireworks display at Rotary Park on the waterfront. The Picov Down Racetrack off Kingston Road, features seasonal quarter horse racing. Plans are underway to convert this facility into a multi-purpose entertainment centre that would include a viewing stadium, oval track, restaurants, and slot machines.
