There are various reasons to visit the town of Kenora, it offers tourists with services and attractions; along with picturesque landscapes. We are a town on the beautiful Lake of the Woods, surrounded by woodlands and carved out of the Canadian Shield. 

We pack our summers with annual events that that are unique to our town! Under the Whitecap Pavilion, you can grab local food and goods every Wednesday at the Matiowski Farmer’s Market. On the August Long Weekend, the past 26 years, we offer Harbourfest.  Three long summer evenings filled with music of various genres, which resonate across the lake. As ‘North America’s Premier Boating Destination’, some of our events must involve the lake. In June, Dingwall Ford offers Water and Wheels. In August, be under the Whitecap when the Kenora Bass International teams do their end of day weigh ins. You will see prize winning fish and most likely walk away with some tackle or treats from the top ten fishermen as they parade through. Not all events go on under the Whitecap, Second Street is shut down for ArtsFest in July for three days or when local radio station Q104 hosts a street party on Labour Day weekend.

Kenora has five Urban Recreational Trails and four Regional Trails which offer different hiking experiences in all four seasons. These trails differ in heritage, scenery and length to experience the Kenora area.  

According to BOATsmart! Lake of the Woods offers boaters and paddlers authentically rugged landscapes and a truly pristine boating experience.  Not a boater? No problem, sit back and relax or stand along the railing of the MS Kenora for a two to two and a half hour tour of the lake. Learn about prominent landmarks like Husky the Muskie and the Devil’s Gap Rock along with legends, facts and local rumors of the land and residents on the lake. 

Want to take advantage of some fun on the lake? Why not go fishing! You can try your luck at fishing if you have the right license and equipment or solicit the help of one of many local fish guides. Additionally for some family fun, we have many public beaches in the area that can be accessed by land or water. Keewatin and Norman Beach are perfect for daily family fun. Anicinabe Park is an RV Park with a large field and beach or catch a shuttle over to Coney Island Beach. One of the most unique annual events Kenora has is actually the Coney Island ‘Maybe Annual’ Music Festival on Coney Island steps from the beach.  

Kenora on top of being a lake town has great local restaurants and shopping. 

Want a taste of Kenora? Why not try the Lake of the Woods Brewing Company where you can sip on locally crafted beer and snack on Firehall Fries. Kenora also has two Greek Restaurants, Plaza and Dino’s that serve authentic Greek cuisine using family recipes that have been passed down through generations. Perhaps you want food and entertainment, Bob’s Burger Bar has local and travelling talent play and you can enjoy signature burgers. Perhaps you are craving Italian, Ristorante will not disappoint with delicious dishes served in very generous portions. With full bellies and wanting a souvenir of the trip, shopping is the next thing on the list of this trip! Perhaps you loved the food and drinks at Lake of the Woods Brewing Company and want to grab something from their shop or walk Second Street and Main Street and you won’t be disappointed. Abundance, Island Girl, and Season all have Kenora and Lake of the Woods branded items. To learn about Kenora’s history during your trip go to the Lake of the Woods Museum or the Mather Wall House.
