folk art festival nova scotia


Nova Scotia Folk Art Festival
"The best four hours of fun..."
Enjoy it all in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia,
Sunday afternoon, August 2, 2015

We invite you to enjoy the colourful and imaginative work of the Festival's folk artists; browse photo albums showing our featured artists; watch videos of artists talking about their work.

Over 60 folk artists will be at the Festival. The result? From noon to four, the Arena is transformed. The reason? It must be the dancing chickens, bearded fishermen, alluring mermaids, colorful fish, and smiling people.
