This juried artisanal arts and crafts show showcases unique products and handmade craftworks and has over the years grown into a fun-for-the-entire-family event, including LIVE musical entertainment, gourmet food vendors, craft beer, music and entertainment lounge, artistic activities for kids and more. This event is coordinated by the Gravenhurst Chamber of Commerce.
Dockside Festival hosted around 100 vendors last year and attracted over 5000 customers to the Gravenhurst Muskoka Wharf, Special Events Field. Building on last year’s success, entrance to the show will again be by donation – and each day, those donor names will be entered into a raffle to win a gorgeous gift basket full of vendor-donated items. We will be giving away one per day!
