Work is underway for the planning of the 2012 Heritage Mica Festival. Once again we will be featuring the Silver Queen Mine, one of the Seven Wonders of Lanark County, in many of the festival activities. In order to make it easier for you to enjoy all the festivities, we have scheduled events to run throughout the summer and into the fall months. Join us for Spirit Walks and open house mine tours, meet character actors and interpreters and learn about life in this area in the early 1900’s. Meet Ma Lally at the Lally Homestead and take part in the local market. The festival will once again include heritage food and heritage music to entertain all ages. Details will be posted regularly on the Heritage Mica Festival page of this website. If you plan to camp, remember to book your campsite early so you are not disappointed.
Welcome! Watch this space for upcoming activities.
