The wharf on Balsam Lake in Coboconk is officially recognized as Canada's highest body of fresh water from which one can circumnavigate the world by boat.
Coboconk invites you to come for a visit and have your picture taken at the photo opportunity at the wharf year-round, proving you have been to the highest fresh water point in Canada!
The Fresh WAter Summit Festival is a weekend-long celebration of this national place of significance. The Friday night party is licensed and it closes down the street by the wharf for a great night of savoury food and live music. Saturday morning launches the family fun. Indulge in an old-fashioned pancake breakfast, experience a thrilling water ski show, learn to fish and be entertained by the Kids Zone - face painting, bouncy castles, Zoo to You, comminity artisans and lots more. All activities are free! Sunday brings a celebration of the precious role of water in our lives at an outdoor picnic and multi faith worship service.
Bring the family and enjoy warm Coboconk hospitality.
