Flavours of Ontario


Huntsville’s historic waterfront, six gourmet courses, a very long table and dancing on the dock! This is Flavours of Ontario, and it’s going to be the dining experience of the summer.

On Thursday, August 8, 2019 you are invited to dine al fresco at the Town Dock with a front-row view of the beautiful Muskoka River and historic Downtown Huntsville. Pull up a chair, enjoy the warm summer air, and be part of a unique Muskoka “field-to-fork” dinner showcasing fare from every region in Ontario. To execute this tall order, local chef extraordinaire Jeff Suddaby will bring together culinary arts students from Niagara College. Not only will every course be impeccably prepared and presented, but you may just rub shoulders with Ontario’s next celebrity chef!

After dinner, the Huntsville Festival of the Arts hosts “Dancing on the Docks”. Local musician Neil Barlow fronts a 10-piece band playing golden oldies as the sun goes down. Grab a partner and your dancing shoes and take a turn on the Town Docks - what better way to end this magical evening? This is free to all - even those not attending the dinner.

Flavours of Ontario marries fine dining with relaxed Muskoka style. Whether you’re a foodie or just want to celebrate summer in Muskoka, this is your chance to sit dock-side and enjoy the company of friends (or meet new ones!) as you taste the future of Ontario cuisine.
