“Catch the Trout, It’s Music in the Woods”

The sharing of stories and songs around the campfire remains an important element for festival campers, performers, and volunteers.

Editors Note: Please visit the Festival's website for updates on the 2023 festival. 

The 22nd Annual Trout Forest Music Festival will be held August 10-12, 2018 in Ear Falls, Ontario. The line-up looks great!

The festival takes place at the Ear Falls Waterfront Park, just one hour north of Vermillion Bay on Highway 105. Camping on the shores of the English River and the late night jam sessions around the bonfires make for a memorable experience of Music in the Woods. The “Trout” features workshops, creative arts, great food, and the best in Northern hospitality with the beautiful Trout Lake Forest as its backdrop.
