August Events in and Around Huntsville & Muskoka

We hope you are enjoying your summer in Huntsville and around Muskoka - we know we certainly have been. Whether you are here for the season, or live here year-round, there are plenty of great events and happenings to attend, adding to our summer fun. August is full of great family fun and entertainment.  The Wearing Parrott Team will be sure to enjoy some of the upcoming events - maybe we will see you sometime, too.  Listed below are some ideas to help you plan your August amusements. 

Huntsville Festival of the Arts continues with a wonderful family-friendly, free concert with one of Canada’s favorite folk singers, Valdy. Reminisce with songs you grew up with and share them with the young ones, too. Valdy’s concert at the park is on Friday, August 5th, beginning at 7:30 pm at the Rotary Bandshell in River Mill Park. Pack a picnic, bring a blanket, and enjoy an evening of music outdoors.

Take a drive to Baysville over the weekend of August 13th -14th for the 30th Annual Arts & Crafts Festival of Baysville. This community festival brings Ontario artists and their crafts to you. Check out incredible handmade jewelry, pottery, paintings, sculptures, and more. The festival takes place at Gristmill Park and Robertson Parkette, which are located next to one another. The parks will come alive with the colourful beauty of art.  

Shop local, support Huntsville, and get some great bargains, too. Coming up Saturday, August 20th, Downtown Huntsville will have its annual Summer Sidewalk Sale. With local shops providing great deals, this is the perfect time to shop for that special something. This year marks the 45th anniversary of this popular community event. The sale runs along Main Street between Lorne Street and Brunel Road, and will include not only great deals, but live music and dance performances, a bounce house for the kids, and art on display.

Car and boat lovers will have a great time at the Lake of Bays Antique Car and Classic Boat Show being held Sunday, August 21st along the Riverfront docks and streets of Baysville. One highlights of the day will include tours of the SS Bigwin steamer cruise ship. Add in streets lined with classic and antique autos, live music, and a bagpipe procession as the boats depart, this is one relaxing and enjoyable afternoon in Muskoka. Even better is the support of donations to Baysville Winter Food Support program, the beneficiary of this wonderful community event. 

Experience a bit of old-fashioned fun at Orchard Park in Huntsville. Orchard Park is just what it seems, a public orchard where the apples on the trees are ripe for the picking. Thursday, August 25th will be the annual Apple Picking Festival. From 10:00am-3:00pm, bring a basket or blanket to catch all the apples you can pick. This is another perfect outing for the entire family and a unique Huntsville way to spend some quality time together and with other community members.
