Huntsville’s Girlfriends’ Getaway Weekend returns to the heart of Muskoka’s cottage country this November 8 – 10, 2019. Back for its 13th year, this event truly offers something for everyone!

Girlfriends’ Getaway Weekend is a weekend jam-packed with entertainment. The performances kick off on Friday night as the Algonquin Theatre hosts Country Legends Tribute Tour, established as North America’s number 1 country tribute show featuring music from some of the biggest names: Garth Brooks, Keith Urban and Tim McGraw.

Saturday night’s headline concert features none other than Brett Kissel, winner of multiple CCMA and Juno Awards, as he takes the Deerhurst Resort stage. Tickets are included with the Deerhurst Resort Girlfriends’ Getaway Package.

Do you like to tear up the dance floor? On Saturday, head over to the Coyote Ugly Dance Party at Canvas Brewing Co. Country 102 will keep the dance moves kickin’ as you gather up your best girlfriends, dress up in your country finest, and let loose on the dance floor.



If you are looking for something a little more daring, Girlfriends’ Getaway has the perfect solution. Find Your Wild is back in 2019 with new and exciting outdoor adventures designed to provide an escape from the pressures of a busy life by challenging you to experience nature like never before.  Release your inner Katniss and try out the arrow shooting or the axe throwing.  You can also sign up for two-hours and try out the Bush Poker Axe Throwing Trail. This includes 16 targets on a walk in the woods, with lots of fun new challenges including moving targets. If you’re looking for something new and exciting, this is it!

If you want to wind down after winding up to throw an axe, then relax and rejuvenate with your girlfriends at yoga! Veda Yoga helps you relax through movement, meditation, healing practices, purification treatments and community. Namaste.


Culinary Experiences

Food has always been a highlight of the weekend, and this year’s event is no exception. Turn drab into fab at the Queens of Cuisine event with fun and interactive cooking demos, followed by High Tea, as Whimsical Bakery demonstrates the art of decadent scone making.
