Bronte Village is home to free events for all ages, attracting thousands of visitors and creating an economic impact of more than half a million dollars for the local economy.
From fireworks that light up the harbour on Canada Day, outdoor performances, arts and cultural events, fitness – and salmon – runs, to cruises on the lake, Bronte is a destination for family friendly entertainment.
And, we’d love more events here, in particular, in the Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park. If you’re a non-profit cultural or community group looking to host an event in our district, let’s talk about how we might partner.

At Home in Bronte Public Art Exhibit returns to Bronte Village for 2020.
The interactive outdoor art show features 50+ uniquely designed Muskoka chairs painted by Oakville artists, families, organizations and businesses. These colourful masterpieces are placed on the Bronte boardwalk, in Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park and on the pier for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike.
The Bronte BIA is inviting artists, BIA members, community and corporate groups to get involved and paint a chair for this summer!
Application forms will be available in late February. Submissions that include your draft design and story are due in early April. Approved applicants will be notified in late April. Painted chairs need to be completed by the May long weekend.
Here’s how it works:
