Culture Days

Culture Days invites everyone to explore, discover and participate in arts and culture in every community across the country.  In 2015, more than 2 million people participated in 7,600 activities in nearly 900 cities and towns. Last year, more than 2000 activities were presented across Ontario.

This year’s Culture Days weekend will take place on September 29, 30 and October 1, 2017. Once again, the event will feature free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate “behind the scenes”—and to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, and designers at work in their community.

As a grassroots, collaborative movement, Culture Days relies on your participation. Whether as an arts or cultural organization, an artist, a municipality, a school, a citizen, a business person…everyone can play a role in shaping this event. So get involved!

Artists of the Limberlost Studio Tour

Artists of the Limberlost - Studio Weekend Tour

August 13 & 14, 2016, 10 am to 5 pm each day.

Welcome to Muskoka's Summer Studio Tour!

The Artists of the Limberlost is a collective of 8 artists and craftspeople with studios along the scenic Limberlost Road, north of Hwy. 60 in Muskoka, Ontario. Their work covers a broad range of media and style, but they are united in their love of the ruggedly beautiful Canadian Shield landscape which they call home.

Each artist welcomes visitors to their studio (see contact information on Studio pages), but to really share their work with the public, the Artists of the Limberlost join together for their annual Open Studio Weekend.  The 2015 Weekend was a great success (see the wrap-up story on our News Page), and the next Open Studio Weekend will be held August 13 & 14, 2016.  With guest artists at each location, you'll meet and see the work of many diverse and talented artists along a compact, 20 km. route. Limberlost Road is close to Algonquin Park in the Huntsville/Lake of Bays area of Ontario, and winds through forest, rock and wetlands rich in wildlife and natural beauty.
