After over 50 years of running art shows, quite a bit has changed for Muskoka Arts and Crafts.
The organization started its first show in 1963 with 50 artists and 3,000 people.
That number has jumped to 200 artists with over 20,000 people visiting annually to see the work brought in from across Muskoka.
The 54th annual show promises much of the same at Annie Williams Park in Bracebridge this year.
Sixty-three newcomers will have their work added to this year’s display and the art from all 200 participants will be critiqued by a panel of professional artists.
There is no smoking allowed within the show area, near the playground or picnic tables at the park.
Food will be available for all hungry patrons including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free.
This show runs for three days, Friday between 10:00am and 6:00pm, Saturday between 10:00am and 6:00pm and Sunday between 10:00am and 4:00pm.
Admission is only by donations, which will be used to support the not-for-profit organization.
