The Gravenhurst Chamber of Commerce participates in a number of community projects each year with a goal of linking local businesses with community organizations to strengthen community events and initiatives.

Gravenhurst Santa Claus Parade

The Gravenhurst Santa Claus Parade has been a tradition celebrating the holiday season and drawing fans of all ages to Historic Downtown Gravenhurst since 1953. Taking place the last Saturday in November, the parade is coordinated by the Gravenhurst Chamber with support from many service clubs, partners and sponsors.

Each year, the event is followed by a Visit With Santa, allowing local children to have a celebration lunch and visit with the guest of honour: Santa! Crafts, Music, Hot Chocolate and Treats complete the event, located at The Gravenhurst Opera House.

All Candidate Forums

Working with regional Muskoka Chambers of Commerce, the Gravenhurst Chamber host municipal, provincial and federal All-Candidate Forums allowing the local community to meet, submit questions and understand Candidate platforms.  To submit questions to Sandy Lockhart please email them to
