Diamond Jubilee - 75th Annual Mason County Forest Festival

Facets of the Forest are waiting for you to discover!

For 75 years, this festival has honored the traditions of an industry which is at its very core – forestry. At its very roots are the generations of families who have nurtured the forests and the business of managing those forests. Every year, those families and friends gather, along with visitors from near and far, to celebrate those rich historical traditions. From a pet parade to high climbing fun, there is something for every member of your family.
