The live music doesn’t stop there! You may remember Canvas Brewing Co. from the wild Coyote Ugly Dance Party in 2019, and since it’s opening in downtown Huntsville that year, Canvas has quickly earned a reputation for well-made craft beer in a great setting. Their brewery includes a taproom with 20 taps and 3200 square feet of event space that will be alive with the sweet sounds of live music that we have all been craving over the past couple years. Canvas has two nights of incredible entertainment planned as local favourites Sean Cotton and Rich Howard will be taking the stage Friday November 12 and Saturday November 13 respectively.

Wolfe Co. opened their flagship store in Huntsville just this past year when they transformed the former Toronto Dominion Bank into an extraordinary, one of a kind 3,000 square-foot retail space. Not only will you be able to find some incredible luxury and comfort streetwear inside the store throughout your getaway but on November 13 from 3-6pm you’ll also be able to enjoy some incredible live music, as Tyler Shaw will be putting on an acoustic performance in-store! Tyler is a Canadian singer and actor. After winning the “MuchMusic Coca-Cola Covers Contest 2012”, he released his debut single, “Kiss Goodnight”, through Sony Music Canada. The song was certified Gold by Music Canada in April 2013. His debut studio album, Yesterday, was released in September 2015.
