Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival

The Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival is a three-day summer celebration of the rich cultural heritage of the province, in all its diversity. The artistic vision of the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival is to present an annual festival which celebrates the intangible cultural heritage of the province and promotes its continuance through transmission, education and encouragement of contemporary artistic innovation. This is accomplished through the presentation of professional musical performances, dances and storytelling, the display and sale of traditional foods and craft items, and audience participation in workshops and informal jam sessions hosted by professional musicians.
