We are so very proud of how far we have come since I had the idea to start a music festival four years ago. We have seen the August long weekend in Gravenhurst become a trusted destination for amazing music, special artist collaborations and community. My team and I intend to continue to grow this festival in a sustainable and locally minded way and celebrate the past and future of Historic Gravenhurst.

Looking ahead to 2020, we are excited to announce that with the new decade we will have a new name. I am so proud to be carrying on in the footsteps of my Great, Great Grandfather who had the Opera House built and believed in Arts and Culture. As the festival's audience has grown, so has our vision.

Sawdust City Music Festival is becoming MUSKOKA MUSIC FESTIVAL! We are embracing this beautiful region that we call home and celebrating Gravenhurst as the Gateway to Muskoka.

Welcome to the Muskoka Music Festival! We can't wait to do this all again next summer July 31st - August 2nd, 2020 and we thank you so much for your support!

All the very best,

Miranda Mulholland, Founder and Artistic Director

Chris Topping, Executive Director

Beth Cavanagh, Director of Publicity

Andrew Currie, Technical Director
