And through it all enjoy the great tunes from local bands Cameron of Lochiel Pipes (12:00), Leyanne Connolly Band (in the Bandshell at 12:10), Mighty Lopez (on Stage West at 12:50), Paul Lagendyk (in the Bandshell at 1:20), the Doug McLean Band (on Stage West at 2:00), the Gina Horswood Band (in the Bandshell at 2:20), James Gray (on Stage West at 3:00), The Big East (in the Bandshell at 3:20), Groove (on Stage West at 4:00), Myrle (in the Bandshell at 4:20), The Jukebox Scoundrels (on Stage West at 5:00) and Laganza (in the Bandshell at 5:20).

Wristbands are available in advance for $20 online at or at Treasures and Trophies and include three (3) beer tickets and a 5-ounce beer mug. You can get them at the gate, too, while they last, but you’ll only get one beer ticket and a mug.

Want to enjoy the bands but don’t want to drink? Or want to bring your kids along? Non-drinking wristbands are available for $10 for ages 13 and older; children 12 and under are free.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Huntsville Hospital Foundation.

The Muskoka 2/4 Beer Fest is presented by the merchants of downtown Huntsville, and the event received a Celebrate Ontario grant which is being used to support local musicians.

“Come to sample local,” said Helena Renwick, Executive Director of the Downtown Huntsville BIA. “Local music, local food, and local beer in a local park.” And when it’s all over at 6:00, you can continue to support local by heading to a downtown restaurant for dinner or stopping in to do some Main Street shopping.

The Muskoka 2/4 Craft Beer Festival runs from 12:00-6:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 20 in River Mill Park and its adjacent parking lot. Get more details here and see photos from last year’s event on Doppler here.
