Peter Schleifenbaum of the Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Preserve has decided not to proceed with this year’s Forest Festival, which takes place in August.

Now in its 10th season, the Forest Festival is a multi-day musical event that takes place at the Logging Museum and Bone Lake Amphitheatre.

Schleifenbaum said due to a conflict with the township in regards to building code disputes on a number of buildings on Haliburton Forest property he has no other choice.
