This calendar is reserved for non-commercial community events. What does that mean? Your event must be free or of nominal cost, available to anyone (although adult-only events are fine), and not for profit (but we do make exception for artists showing their work who would profit from any sales made and musicians hosting small-scale concerts). Not sure if your event fits? Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to check, or go ahead and submit anyhow – submissions are moderated and we’ll approve yours if it fits our criteria. Thanks for helping make Huntsville a vibrant community!

Muskoka Novel Marathon
July 12, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - July 15, 2019 @ 8:00 pm
40 writers. 72 hours. $32,000 or more raised for literacy in Muskoka for four years in a row… Now in its 18th year, the Muskoka Novel Marathon is both a creative hothouse in which writers compete for an inside track to a publisher or agent, and a powerhouse fundraiser that liberates people and changes their lives through the gift of literacy. Supporting first the Muskoka Literacy Council and now YMCA Literacy Services, we’ve raised a total of more than $200,000, $133,000 of it in the last four years, and many of our writers have gone on to publishing success, including Amy Stuart with the international bestseller Still Mine. It’s free to visit and cheer us on. Want to participate? Click here.
