Elexicon Energy

This year we welcome Elexicon Energy as the Title Sponsor and we're thrilled to continue this partnership for years to come.

The Chamber started the festival to draw visitors and seasonal residents to the shores of Lake Muskoka to enjoy music, culinary treats, and handmade arts and crafts.  Dockside Festival has changed through the years but still promises guests a bounty of cultural offers from artisan vendors to Muskoka's best musical talent.

We give back: Thanks to the support of our visitors and sponsors, we are able to offer a small bursary to a graduating student from Gravenhurst High School who is studying the arts.
