About The Gathering at Viamede Resort…
What is The Gathering?
It’s an event series curated from our culinary philosophy of using locally-sourced, foraged, and raised ingredients and sharing exquisite, highly-edible gourmet in a social space with local live music, special guests, and—most importantly—you.
In short, it’s the best party in the Kawarthas.
A quality assembly of people who live in the Kawarthas, and a healthy cohort of people who wish they lived here.
I’m not sure I like gourmet food.
Yes, you do. You just haven’t tried our gourmet food.
What do I wear to The Gathering?
Think cabin chic, rugged allure or high-concept-down-home. In short, whatever you feel good in, and can dance in.
