Midnight Madness Huntsville
Midnight Madness is a fantastically fun street festival that completely transforms Huntsville’s Downtown. Starting at 6pm on Friday, July 19, the Main Street is closed off and then flooded with families, food, and phenomenal vendors. Plus, this year they’re introducing a Beer Garden and a Street Dance Party. So channel your inner Dancing Queen, and get ready to groove!
FINALLY! A weekend just for our best friends – by which, of course, we mean our cute and cuddly canines! This Saturday and Sunday, July 20 and 21, Morrison Meadows will play host to the third annual Muskoka Dog Festival. Held in memory of ardent animal lover Steve Hern, proceeds from this event are shared with local charities that give back to the community. So go and treat your doggy to a fun-filled day, which features activities like the DogLovers Days Lure Course, a Doggie Play Zone, a Best Dressed Dog Contest, and more events that’ll get your tail wagging.
But, if you’re planning to attend, keep in mind that all dogs have to be on a leash. And, be sure to visit their website for further safety steps.
Muskoka Yoga Festival
Oooooooooom…y goodness, we’re so excited for the Muskoka Yoga Festival! Held this year on July 19 to 21, the aim of the weekend is to get you to connect with yourself, the community around you, and nature.
There’s a full schedule of exciting and enlightening activities, which includes over 50 hours of yoga and meditation, music events, dancing, a local farmers market, and so much more. And, new for 2019, they are also hosting a 10k Forest Run through the picturesque Limberlost Forest & Wildlife Preserve.
Muskoka Arts & Crafts Summer Show
This weekend, July 19 to 21, marks the 57th year for the much-loved Muskoka Arts & Crafts’ Summer Show. Hosted in the beautiful Annie Williams Memorial Park, visitors come from all over for this art extravaganza where they get to leisurely peruse the roughly 200 participating Canadian artists. Art, atmosphere, and excitement? It’s no wonder that it is such an eagerly awaited event and a staple of Muskoka’s summer season.
