Fall Festival Activities in Watersheds Leading To Georgian Bay

One of the most significant watersheds leading to Georgian Bay is the Nottawasaga River and its many tributaries. The Wye River is also a major provider of fresh water to Georgian Bay.
Combine a little canoeing this weekend with a visit to two
popular Festivals, the
Wye Marsh Rythms Festival which includes free canoe rides (see photo) in a large voyageur canoe.

The Nine Mile Portage Festival in Barrie and Fort Willow (Minesing)--bring your own canoe and travel into the Minesing Wetlands, as the explorers did more than 400 years ago. (This was a short cut to Georgian Bay, compared to canoeing up through Orillia, the Severn and back down to the Midland area and the settlement at Sanite Marie among the Hurons.

See Midland and Barrie for area accommodation. Or select a road trip from a selection of fall colour road trips north of Toronto.
