Arts, entertainment and

lifelong learning on the shores

of Lake Rosseau, Muskoka

Muskoka Chautauqua is an artistic community that nurtures curiosity and creativity.

It is one of Muskoka’s longest-running and iconic cultural institutions encompassing the arts, education and reflection, and springs from a tradition that started 100 years ago, when the region attracted North America’s leading thinkers to its tranquil retreats. Our vibrant arts community continues to entice participants to experience personal growth and to share innovative, creative ideas. You, too, can become part of this cultural phenomenon.
