Festive Christmas Cupcakes

Toe tap your way to the Lake of Bays Brewery on December 14 for an afternoon of entertainment hosted by Baysville’s very own, Petra. This 11-session series is bringing incredible talent to Baysville, so sit back, enjoy the music, and sip on delicious local craft brews.
Muskoka is known far and wide as Santa’s summer home, as tens of thousands flock every year to Bracebridge and the 45th parallel to visit Santa’s Village Family Amusement Park. Santa Claus will be welcoming guests to his home inside Santa’s Village for the Annual SantaFest, with two weekends remaining: December 14/15 and 21/22. Santa’s only back in town for a few weekends and he’d love to see you. The highlight of meeting the jolly man in red is only part of the festivities, also enjoy cookie decorating, games, face painting, Christmas crafts, and more!
Shop from a curated group of talented artists and makers at the very first Noël North holiday show at Annex – a creative arts space in downtown Bracebridge.
With the discerning shopper in mind, the organizers have gathered together some of their favourite creators from Muskoka and beyond. Featuring beautiful fine art, pottery, jewellery, home goods, artisan foods and clothing for both adults and kids. We won’t call you a last-minute Christmas shopper yet, but it’s a great opportunity to cross some names off of your list.
