August 2 – Muskoka Chautauqua Summer Festival Opening & Welcome

Join us for a vibrant celebration of arts and culture, beginning with a warm welcome and a meaningful Land Acknowledgment.

We’ll wrap up with highlights from the day and extend an invitation to join us for the opening of Gallery in the Woods and a special book launch. Don’t miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in creativity and community.

Teachings & Traditions by Wahta Mohawk Indigenous Elders

Join us for a special session on teachings and traditions led by Terry and Lucia Sahnatian during our opening ceremony on the connection to our lands.

The Wilding Book Launch

In poems shot through with both wonder and woe, Sandra Morris’s debut poetry collection, The Wilding, is a fierce consideration of wilderness amidst a changing climate — a love letter and offering to Muskoka and the natural world.

Sandra is thrilled to launch The Wilding at the Muskoka Chautauqua, in the place that inspired it. She will read a selection of poems from her debut collection — with music, photos, refreshments, and a small token of appreciation for participants and Muskoka to accompany this event.
