Festival Description

The festival features Canada’s finest folk musicians and storytellers who bring to life the times past of Canada’s formative years. Lumerjacks, seafarers, and immigrants all have their stories to tell and this is where it happens! The festival programming includes music and dance performances, musical boat rides and a gospel concert the entire family can enjoy. There is a breakfast with live music, luncheons with more live music, a children’s show and concerts and workshops. The popular festival has been running since September 1958 and is Canada's longest standing Folksong Festival.
