After being cancelled last summer, the Forest Festival is back for its 10th year with some high-caliber Canadian talent.
“We’re really, really thrilled with our lineup,” said festival manager Lesley English.
Every summer, prior to 2016, the festival’s taken place at the Bone Lake Amphitheatre and the Logging Museum, both owned by the Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve. But in February last year, a judge ordered the Forest to demolish several buildings, including the museum, because building permits were not obtained. The Forest pulled the plug on the festival in March, shortly after a heated public meeting between owner Peter Schleifenbaum and Dysart council.
