The inaugural ChautauquaFest this past summer was a huge success. With 20 events held across the municipalities of Bracebridge, Gravenhurst and Muskoka Lakes, there was something for everyone to enjoy. From opera, country and jazz music to poetry, film and painting, ChautauquaFest quickly became a beautiful celebration of the arts in the Muskoka region! Plans for ChautauquaFest 2015 are well underway. Be sure to check back here for updates!

If you enjoy the music of opera, broadway, operetta and other classics please join us for our fifth annual festival from August 18th - 21st 2014 at the Rene M.Caisse Memorial Theatre in Bracebridge.


This exciting event includes a "celebration of the word" with big-name authors and commentators.
