The Muskoka Lakes Music Festival (MLMF) is a charitable organization that was incorporated in 1996. Its mission is to “enrich the cultural fabric of the community by providing leadership in arts education and quality musical entertainment”. The MLMF presents an annual summer series of 8-10 musical concerts in a variety of genres, held in Muskoka Lakes in July and August, as well as year-round arts outreach programming in Muskoka schools through its Kaleidoscope Arts in Education program.

Through live performance by renowned Canadian artists, the Festival creates an environment to cultivate and encourage new and established musical talent by providing a form to perform concerts with professional musicians. The Festival uses intimate venues set in the natural beauty of Muskoka that provide for interaction with musicians in an informal atmosphere.
