ange-and-rubyFrost Festival 2018 – February 17th

There will be a Frost Festival planning meeting on Tuesday, November 14 at 10:00 am in the Dysart Council Chambers (135 Maple Avenue).  The Frost Festival committee is looking for new ideas and events that will help attract a wider audience.  Come to the meeting on November 14 to share your ideas with us.  Please note, that you should be prepared to execute your idea.

The schedule of events will be posted as the events are confirmed.

This is a completely free fun filled day of outdoor activity and recreation for the entire family.  There is everything from horse drawn wagon rides, pony rides, snowman building, snowshoeing and sled dog rides around the park.  For those 560seeking a bit more extreme sport, join the Polar Bear Challenge to help raise funds with the Lion’s Club for the Haliburton Highlands Health Services Foundation and The Hospital for Sick Kids Music Therapy Program.


If you’d like more information or if you’d like to volunteer or provide an activity for this community event, please contact or call 705-457-1740 x. 35 and ask to speak to Andrea Mueller, Recreation Coordinator.
