Historic Forestville and the Friends of Forestville have partnered with the Preston Area Community Foundation to present a free concert series this summer at historic Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park. The musical series opened with a square dance led by Bob Bovee, Pop Wagner and Anni Spring on June 11. Upcoming events feature roots music from local favorites River Crossing (4-6 p.m., July 2), an original Opry-style show in the barn with Becky Schlegel (6-8 p.m., July 23), Root River Jam (6:30- 8:30 p.m., July 30), and will be capped by one of Minnesota’s most popular musicians, Charlie Parr (7:30-9 p.m., August 27).

Historic Forestville and Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park provide a very beautiful and majestic backdrop for this family musical event. Scheduled tours and additional programs are also available at the historic site. Parking for the Music Series will be at Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park and an annual park permit or day pass is required.
