Special Event Coordination

Dockside Festival of the Arts and The Gravenhurst Car Show take place annually. The Chamber coordinates the special events that increase awareness of Gravenhurst and increase visitation and visitor spending within the community. From sponsorship and marketing to event and entertainment coordination, The Chamber has been hosting events for residents and visitors for over two decades.

Dockside Festival of the Arts

The Gravenhurst Chamber of Commerce created Dockside Festival of the Arts in 1991 as a way to showcase the artisan, musical and gourmet talents that are abundant in Muskoka.  Taking place the third weekend in August, Dockside Festival hosts over 100 juried artisans, a full line up of musical talent, gourmet food vendors and samples, and fun for the entire family.

Gravenhurst Car Show

Since 1993, The Chamber has coordinated the Annual Gravenhurst Car Show. Taking over Gull Lake Park the Saturday of Father’s Day Weekend, the event hosts over 500 antique, classic and specialty cars. Gull Lake Park is a lakeside venue where show guests can browse Northern Ontario’s largest classic car show while enjoying exhibits, family activities and live music.
