The Most Anticipated Winter Festival of the Season

Fire and Ice Festival | Bracebridge

2016 was the first year for Bracebridge's Fire and Ice Festival, and the inaugural celebration did not dissappoint. The entire downtown turned into a festival atmosphere, with busker entertainment, campfires, yummy goodies, ice skating at the Memorial Park Winter Village, and oh yeah ... they built a tubing hill right down Manitoba Street!

Fire and Ice Festival is the perfect family-friendly festival, and is well worth the trip to this picturesque downtown in the heart of Muskoka. Plan a fun-filled family weekend by booking at a local hotel.
