Seven months after the cancellation, the Forest Festival will be returning in 2017.

It will be happening on August 16th, to the 20th.

Manager of the event Lesley English explains why the event didn’t happen this year.

English says Haliburton Forest will be making the necessary modifications to the buildings in question, including the Logging Museum. She says Municipality of Dysart et al and the Haliburton Forest signed a mutually supported agreement.

English says she is thrilled the event is back.
