We’re very excited and pleased to begin our second decade of glorious music-making in Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve.

We are unique in having a breathtakingly beautiful and pristine wilderness lake for our exclusive use, and our historic Logging Museum is a favourite of our artists. Everything happens in the greatest setting on earth, Mother Nature!

Our audiences are growing, our artists are glowing (in their appreciation), and we’re happy knowing our festival has become a highlight of Haliburton. We’re on a roll!
