Summer Lakshore Festival

1884 Pigeon Lake Road Lindsay ON between Bobcaygeon and Lindsay.
Gamiing is also proud to showcase the best of the Kawartha’s local, organic and wild edible food, brought to the festival by Gamiing's own chefs de cuisine. They will prepare picnic lunches which can be enjoyed either right there where the music is or anywhere along the trails in the forest. They also will feature fruit wines from Kawartha Country Winery and organic beers from local breweries, as well as finger foods and dinner of wild edibles all from Gamiing’s property. The Summer Lakeshore Music Festival will also offer outdoor games for the kids and the spectacular Gamiing Puppeteers with a show called “In the Forest”, in honour of this years' International Year of the Forest. And don’t miss the opportunity to sample some of Gamiing’s many delightful nature trails.
The Gamiing Nature Centre, located at 1884 Pigeon Lake Road, 12 km south of Bobcaygeon, is a 100-acre “refuse” farm on the west shore of Pigeon Lake. It features ponds, forests and meadows, hiking trails, marshes, and hundreds of feet of lake frontage. Owner and volunteer director Mieke Schipper put her farm into a Conservation Easement with the regional land trust Kawartha Heritage Conservancy “to preserve the natural shoreline and its surrounding property while creating a dynamic natural teaching centre people can visit for relaxation, reflection, and to taste the pleasures of low-impact, sustainable lakeshore living.” Admission to the Summer Lakeshore Music Festival is by donation; all ages are welcome. See you there.
