The Forest Festival’s TENTH ANNIVERSARY SEASON will take place August 16-20, 2017 against the stunning wilderness backdrop of Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve. Our floating stage on Bone Lake and Historic Logging Museum will once again resonate to great Canadian talent; we promise you another August to look forward to, with more memories to cherish.

Such an anniversary means we can look back proudly at some of the artists we’ve been fortunate to present: Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor, Sarah Harmer, Canadian Brass, Nathaniel Dett Chorale, Alan Doyle, Hilario Duran Trio, Whitehorse, Murray McLauchlan, Lighthouse, John McDermott, Patricia O’Callaghan, Bruce Cockburn, The Sultans of String, Ken Whiteley, Mary Lou Fallis, Suzie Vinnick, R. Murray Schafer, Manteca, Porkbelly Futures with Paul Quarrington, Natalie McMaster and Donnell Leahy, Dan Hill, The Good Lovelies, Russell deCarle, Jane Bunnett, Dave Young Quartet, Anne Lindsay, Measha Brueggergosman, Heavyweights Brass Band, Amanda Martinez, and The Shuffle Demons.

This is just a partial list, so please forgive us if we’ve omitted some of your favourites! Our full 2017 lineup will be announced in April, so stay tuned.
