For the week of March 18 – 24, 2019
This week in Muskoka you can: listen to blues music, admire spring inspired art, shop a wide selection of vintage collectibles with a view of Lake Muskoka, jump a puddle on your choice of ski or snowboard, and have a tea party in Huntsville with Whimsical Bakery. Muskoka has so much to offer, which is why we can never get enough of this entertaining and relaxing place.
Muskoka Blues Weekend
Brews and blues go together so well, which is why Muskoka Brewery is sponsoring the Muskoka Blues Weekend at Deerhurst Resort on March 22 – 23, 2019. The weekend will feature music from the Muskoka Blues Connection and a tribute band to Stevie Ray Vaughn, The SVR Experience. There are a number of ways for you to get in on the blues action; purchase a weekend concert pass, purchase tickets to the Friday and/or Saturday night concerts, or stay the weekend with a 2-night overnight package with Deerhurst Resort.
Muskoka Arts and Crafts
The 42nd annual Muskoka Arts and Crafts Spring Members’ Show will take place over 3 days, from March 22 – 24, 2019 at the Bracebridge Sportsplex. Every year there are over 100 members who bring their best work to the show.
While the Members’ Show will have a lot of fanfare, we also encourage you to visit the Chapel Gallery for the opening of A Canadian Mosaic, the newest exhibition on display. The exhibit will open on Saturday, March 23 and will run until April 20. Paintings by Laura Carter and photographs by Ulrich Kretchmar combine for a stunning collection that impressively captures Canada’s diverse and spectacular landscape.
If you’ve got time, check out both this weekend!
