Home of Canada's longest-running sled dog races. 


Drawing on the adventurous tradition of sled dog racing, Marmora SnoFest celebrates a love of dogs, sport and community. SnoFest continues to be a destination for stellar sled dog racing and skijoring, attracting world-class competitors from Canada and beyond, and offers programming to entertain the whole family.

I love the dogs, and they love doing it. We work all year to be able to do it. Secondly, it’s just a great group of friends. Most of the mushers, we’ve been doing it for so long we all know each other. . . It’s just fun and it’s really social.
