Fire And Ice Nights (Now-February 26th)
Recently named one of 19 Stunning Natural Ice Skating Rinks Around the World by Travel+Leisure, the Ice Skating Trail at Arrowhead Provincial Park is best in class. This fairy-tale skate through the Muskoka forest is already a must-do, but the experience reaches another level when the sun goes down and the trail is lit up by hundreds of tiki torches.
The aptly named Fire & Ice nights at Arrowhead Provincial Park have become extremely popular over the years. Many skaters that have tried the now famous skating trail return to Huntsville for this magical skate under the stars.

Beyond Monet (Reopening February 3rd)
People of all ages can be part of every brushstroke as Monet’s artwork comes to life in front of their very eyes. Guests can become one with the paintings as projections of Monet’s pieces swirl around, transforming the space into an ethereal representation of his life’s work. His artwork expands beyond the framed canvases through music, sound effects and scenography that will awaken the senses and create a captivating atmosphere. Beyond Monet promises to break conventions with this spectacular audio-visual journey through impressionism. In Monet’s vision lies an incandescent world without a shore, a world of fleeting and effervescent reflections. Beyond our gaze is Monet.

Winter Stations (February 21st-March 31st)
Over the course of the last year and a half, we have so clearly witnessed the immense ability of people to withstand and push through challenging and unprecedented times.. In recognition and celebration of this courage, the theme chosen for the 2022 edition of Winter Stations is Resilience: the ability to withstand adversity and recover from difficulties.
To be resilient, one is faced with hardship, confronts it, and pushes to overcome it. Whether on a micro or macro scale, families, livelihoods, cities, and countries have experienced loss and isolation – but also – have been presented with great opportunities for adaptation and growth. This year, we not only reflect on all the ways people have had to be resilient, but the ways people have channeled this resilience, be it through communities, movements, support networks and more.
Shary Boyle: Outside The Palace of Me (February 24th-May 15th)
Outside the Palace of Me is a major exhibition of new work by Canadian visual artist and performer Shary Boyle. Borrowing a line from UK poet Kae Tempest’s 2017 song “Europe Is Lost,” Outside the Palace of Me assembles the artist’s ever-mounting anxieties about global crises, within the context of identity theatre. Reflecting on contemporary constructions of self through the language of costume, character, set design, and stage effects, Boyle explores how we see each other, and how we see ourselves.
Are you looking to get outdoors and enjoy nature this winter? It seems like the newest trends include interacting with interesting animals. That’s just what we have in store on this Ontario farm where you can take Alpacas for a walk.
