What a Night At The 2023 Outstanding Bracebridge Business Achievement Awards


From the Bracebridge Chamber of Commerce

We can’t thank everyone enough for nominating for, voting for, and attending our sold-out Awards Gala last night! It was an amazing night that celebrated our excellent and supportive business community. We couldn’t be happier to have had over 200 attendees last night, and we can’t wait to see you next year!

The entire night wouldn’t have been possible without the support we receive from the Bracebridge community. We had over 100 nominees from the public in 12 categories, and we received over 11,000 public votes from the public.

Congratulations to all winners and nominees. Your commitment to making Bracebridge a better place is exceptional!
