 The city's most prominent cultural venue is the downtown                         Harbourfront Amphitheatre, a park on the shore of Lake of the Woods which hosts the city's annual winter and summer festivals, as well as concert series, and other special events. The Harbourfront is also the docking point for the M/S Kenora, a small cruise ship which offers a guided tour of the lake.


Kenora is also home to Huskie the Muskie,  a 40 ft. statue of a fighting muskellunge.
