Jake on the Lake will be our emcee for the evening, guiding you through this wonderful night supporting the Kenora and Lake of the Woods Community Foundation.


Thank you to our 4 amazing community driven restaurants in the Kenora area who graciously accepted to host our guests with their hospitality tonight.


Due to its popularity since 2020, we will once again have the “tree trail” winding its way through our downtown so all can enjoy the beautiful trees lovingly created by our dedicated and creative Decorations Teams before they are auctioned off the night of the Festival of Trees. The tree trail will be introduced in November.
