Oxtongue Community Dance & Social

Saturday, August 5, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 12:30 am

As a fresh take on a tradition from years gone by, the OLA is organizing an all-ages Community Dance & Social which will take place at the Oxtongue Lake Community Centre on Saturday, August 5th, from 7:30pm – 12:30am. This outdoor event will provide an opportunity for community members to meet and engage with neighbours from every bay on the lake, and will include a DJ, a dance floor, and a cash bar with refreshments (beer, wine, soft drinks) and light snacks. Additionally, we’ll be providing a complimentary bus service around the lake to help everyone get to and from the dance safely. More details to follow in the coming weeks.

All are welcome, from house guests to resort guests, however, in order to get a better gauge on the level of interest, and so we can plan accordingly with sufficient food/drinks, we’re requesting that you purchase your tickets for the Community Dance & Social in advance.

Tickets are available for purchase. Online has closed but will be available at the door.

  • Adults: 19 and over – $10 (Includes one drink ticket)*
  • Minors: 18 and under – FREE

* Note: All Adult ticket holders (with proof of age verified at the event) will receive one included drink ticket which can be redeemed for either: 1 beer or 1 glass of wine or 2 soft drinks upon check-in at the event. Bracelets will be provided to all Adult ticket holders and will be required for the purchase of alcohol.

Bus Schedule 
Our goals were to be convenient, efficient, predictable and flexible. Hopefully, we have achieved this.

7pm-9pm. On the half-hour loops start from the end of Harris Road to the Community Centre and back.
9:30-12:30am. On the half-hour loops start from the community centre to the end of Harris Road and back.

The bus will stop at designated bus stops which are listed below for pick-ups and drop-offs. We hope to stay as close as possible to this schedule for the evening. The last bus will leave the community centre at 12:30am.

On every loop, as the bus heads toward the community centre it will stop when it sees people to pick up at a designated bus stop, and as it heads away from the community centre, it will drop people off at a designated bus stop.

Bus Stops:

  • End of Harris Road (eg. 7pm/7:30) (eg. 9:50/10:20)
  • Boat Launch
  • 1538 Harris Road
  • Windy Point & Thumb Creek
  • 1214 Harris Road
  • Parkway
  • Algonquin Outfitters
  • Lakewoods
  • Community Centre (eg. 7:20pm/7:50) (eg. 9:30/10pm)

For Severn Lane and Keysbury Dr, please get in touch with us at ola@oxtonguelake.com to hear a separate plan. While we are not running a personalized taxi service, however, if you do have a special request because you are just a bit too far to walk to a designated bus stop, reach out to us ahead of time too.

The bus driver can make some minor judgements along the route; however, please don’t try to sweet-talk him to go down the artery roads. We don’t want it getting stuck turning around, making the loop much longer and less predictable for everyone.

Tickets, Food & Drink
For advanced ticket purchasers, someone will be on the first few bus loops to check your name on the list, verify your ID, and give you a bracelet and drink tickets. All others will need to do upon arrival at the community centre. Online ticket sales will close on Saturday at 5pm. We encourage everyone to buy online ahead of time.

Cash and Credit Cards are accepted for all tickets, food and drink.

Drink Tickets are $5 for one glass of wine or beer or 2 non-alcoholic drinks. Anyone may purchase drink tickets but can only redeem them for alcohol if they are wearing a bracelet.

Algonquin Pizza & Panini will be onsite selling pizza, wings and other food items.

A 50/50 draw will run all day.

We appreciate your patience for the evening in making this a fun community event for multiple ages. It may end up with a few glitches, but people make a party, so come on out to have fun with your neighbours.

And don’t forget it’s outside only! So dress appropriately!
