Father’s Day Weekend in the great Canadian wilderness

Celebrate everything that’s great about dads this Father’s Day weekend and check out some of the cool activities happening throughout the great Canadian wilderness just north of Toronto. Though things may not be as traditional as they were this time last year, there is still plenty to see and do while keeping social distancing at the front of mind. From online virtual car shows and fantastic golf courses, to brewery patios, hiking trails and license free fishing across the region; get the crew together this weekend and make it one to remember!

The 27th Annual Gravenhurst Car Show  Virtual Edition

The Gravenhurst Car Show has gained tons of attention over the years as a premier event to catch a glimpse at some incredible rides (one of our favorites was a 1994 GMC Vandura souped up to look like The Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo), but for the more traditional car enthusiast there’s everything from 1926 Form Model T’s to 1965 Ford Mustangs. Now that we’ve got you excited about the Gravenhurst Car Show, you can experience the 27th Annual Gravenhurst Car Show Virtual Edition right from your living room!
