Dockfest

Rotary of Huntsville Dock Fest • July 8

A great day of family fun. The core of the festival is the long lost, but never forgotten, Bathtub Derby. In its heyday the Derby attracted thousands of local residents, and visitors to the community to witness the zany antics of motorized bathtubs as they navigated their way through a challenging course of obstacles trying to maintain balance and speed.  11am - 6pm

Over the past 38 years, the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour has seen a continued evolution, presenting only the finest professional artists and craftspeople working within Muskoka. There is always something new to discover, from well-designed functional items to expressive fine art. Everything you see on the tour has emerged from the inspiration of the landscape and the skill of our members. The artists of Canada's original studio tour invite you to explore Muskoka's dramatic autumn landscape and to see where the past year's inspiration has taken us. The remarkable realm of colour, form, texture, and design created by the artists of the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour is echoed in the splendour of the region at this magnificent time of year. The brilliant foliage and sparkling waters highlight the pleasure of seeking out the studios tucked in back roads and overlooking scenic vistas.

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.
