This is Muskoka's most popular, largest and longest running art and craft outdoor show. Exhibitors from Muskoka, Ontario and other regions of Canada display their work in a beautiful park setting to an anticipated audience of 15,000 to 20,000 people who are enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the arts.

Located north of Toronto, Muskoka is a two-hour drive following Highways 400 and 11. The most accessible vacation area in Ontario with recreation facilities, attractions and thousands of lakes, Muskoka has been the traditional "getaway" destination for cottagers and vacationers for over a hundred years. In 2011, the National Geographic Travelers Magazine editors twice recognized this region as one of the best places in the world to visit.

The annual Summer Show is the major fund-raiser for Muskoka Arts & Crafts, a non-profit, community-based arts organization with well over 360 members. Proceeds support the Chapel Gallery, a yearly $1,200 student art bursary and many other events. Muskoka Arts & Crafts receives no funding from any level of government and is proud of its ability to raise all its own operating funds.

Your application must reach the office of Muskoka Arts & Crafts on or before May 31, 2019.

  • Public Health Unit
    You are required to complete a Muskoka-Parry Sound Health Unit Application for Special Events Food Service and submit it to the Health Unit a minimum of ten days prior to the Summer Show. Past experience has shown, however, that an earlier submission is required.
