Maple, blues music and art, there are plenty of reasons to get excited this March in Muskoka!
March is a great time of year. The days get longer, the sun shines brighter, and we start to thaw from the long winter. March also marks the kick-off of the maple harvest, and with that comes the Muskoka Maple Trail. This culinary trail is all about the amazing goodness of locally harvested maple syrup, with 27 stops to discover (and re-discover) your love for maple. For some cultural fun, the Muskoka Arts and Crafts Spring Members’ Show is taking place at the end of the month and will showcase the beautiful and vibrant artwork from hundreds of local artists. This show is sure to brighten your day and get you excited for the warmer weather that is on its way. Last but not least, the Muskoka Blues Weekend at Deerhurst Resort will be a weekend filled with music that feeds the soul and some good jam sessions. The blues weekend is sponsored by Muskoka Brewery, so of course you can count on craft beer + blues tunes.
