On Thursday August 13th this group of award winning (over 20 Juno’s collectively) musicians and vocalists will entertain Forest Festival audiences at the Historic Logging Museum.


The Forest Festival is thrilled to welcome folk-rock sensations Whitehorse to the Historic Logging Museum on Wednesday August 12th.

 Red Hot Ramble

New Orleans comes to the Forest Festival on the afternoon of Saturday, August 15th when Red Hot Ramble takes you on a jazz, blues, and funk seasoned stroll through the French Quarter. The Historic Logging Museum will never be the same.

 Melissa Bel

The Historic Logging Museum will be rocking on the afternoon of Sunday, August 16th when the Forest Festival welcomes Melissa Bel, a blues guitar playing singer with a killer Aretha-meets-Sheryl Crow vocal.

 Alan Doyle Trio

 Oh Susanna

This singer/songwriter with sweet country pipes will serenade us at Bone Lake on Saturday, August 15th.


The Forest Festival’s celebration of nature and music is enjoyed by more and more people every year. This makes us very happy, and even more determined to make concert-going a key part of your August.

Buy-Ticket-ButtonOnce again we’ve chosen top performers for our two unique performance venues: Haliburton Forest's Historic Logging Museum (soon to be enlarged for our 10th anniversary in 2016!) and the fabulous wilderness setting of our Bone Lake Amphitheatre, for those unforgettable concerts under the stars.

Regardless, the Great Outdoors beckons. Welcome to another year of adventure!
