Yes.  In fact Manitoulin is famous for its waterways.  There are many marinas in the Town of NEMI.  The closest to the Manitoulin Country Fest venue is Harbor Vue Marina.  It is within walking distance of the Manitoulin Country Fest venue.  If you would like to stay within Little Current, you can also stay at the town docks, Boyle Marine or Spider Bay Marina   

Folding chair, hat, jacket or sweater, sun screen and maybe rubber boots for rainy weather. Manitoulin is a dark sky sanctuary, bring a flashlight! Our walk ways have limited lighting so we recommend you bring a flashlight. Don’t forget your camera, and in case you forget something, we have a General Store on site. 
 
There will be various food vendors on site with a variety of food/snacks and beverages for sale.  Remember – alcohol can only be consumed within the confines of the beer gardens in the staging area.
 
Coolers will not be allowed on the venue site unless accompanied by a doctor’s note.  Those with coolers may be subject to inspection by a security guard or uniformed Ontario Provincial Police Officer.
