June Events In & Around Huntsville & Muskoka

Summer is just around the corner, and that means the start of the peak busy season for Huntsville and the Muskoka region. Whether you are looking for family friendly events or incredible arts and cultural happenings, June in Huntsville is full of incredible ways to get your summer started, including some amazing competitions and races. With so much going on, it can be hard to choose just what to do. Listed below are some ideas to help you plan your June activities.  

Get June started with the Reel Paddling Film Festival coming up Friday June 3rd at the Algonquin Theatre in Huntsville. 2016 marks the 11th year of this incredible visual feast for the senses. Explore and experience the world’s greatest water routes on river raft, canoe or kayak, all while staying dry in the theatre. Tickets are just $16.00 and the Festival begins at 7:30 pm, with the doors opening at 6:30 pm. 22 short films from around the world are ready to inspire your next white water adventure.

Head over to Port Sydney for a fun family day with the entire village. Saturday, June 4th marks the 17th Annual Village-Wide Yard Sale, taking place all around Port Sydney. More than just a yard sale, there’s food to be enjoyed to at the Lions’ Club Breakfast BBQ, or coffee and sweet treats at church bake sales. If that is not enough, be sure to check out the feature attraction of the yard sale, the “Trunk Sale” and Chamber BBQ being held at Mary Lake Beach, where you will find over 50 vendors ready to sell their goods.

If you love to fish and supporting the incredible charitable works of the Huntsville Fire Department, be sure to register for the upcoming Huntsville Pike Challenge set for Sunday, June 5th at the Huntsville Town Docks. There are cash prizes to be had for the top teams, biggest fish, and more.
This day long fishing tournament is an annual fundraiser to help the Huntsville Fire Department Association, which uses the funds to promote safety education and support our community members in need.

What do running, live music, and charitable good works have in common? The annual Muskoka Band on the Run Half Marathon and Musical Festival is the answer. Join the Lake of Bays fire fighters as they run in full gear to help raise funds in support of Habitat for Humanity’s Ontario Gateway North location. Beginning in downtown Huntsville on Saturday, June 11th, this half marathon is like no other with live music along the way and after the race, including a performance by The Jim Cuddy Band, and more. A kid’s race is first up at 8:00 AM, followed by not only the half marathon, but also a 5k run/walk and a 10k run as well.

Another way to challenge yourself is during the TriMuskoka Event coming up on Sunday, June 26th at the Canada Summit Centre in Huntsville. This is more than just a race, it is a day of events centred around challenging yourself, your friends, and family toward a healthier lifestyle. The Short Course Triathlon Championship is an ideal way to show off how far you have come, if you have been focused on running as a way to be healthy and fit. If you are not marathon ready though, how about the Try-a-Tri portion of the event? This is a great chance to check out a shortened version of a triathlon with a 400 metre swim, 10 km bike ride, and a 2.5 km run. The ultimate goal of the TriMuskoka Event is to give everyone a chance to push themselves a bit further and enjoy a great community experience too.
Whatever your plans may be for the month of June, we hope you enjoy all the various ways you can make community connections Muskoka has to offer.
