About Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival
Words from the orgainzation
"The Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Arts Society (NLFAS) is a charitable organization located in St. Johns, NL.
Our mandate is the promotion and preservation of the traditional folk arts of the province. Active since 1966, the organization presents educational and cultural events that provide artists with the opportunity to showcase their work and that engage our youth and the general public in the transmission of our intangible cultural heritage.
Our two longest running events, Folk Night at the Ship Pub and the Annual Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival are rites of passage for up and coming folk and traditional musicians, and beloved by seasoned performers. Our support for young artists is amplified at our annual Young Folk at the Hall concert, and on the Neil Murray stage for young performers at the Festival. Our events give audiences the opportunity to engage in celebration of our traditional folk arts.
Our annual Holiday Wassail is a gathering where families can sing their favourite Christmas Carols along with some of our best musicians in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Our Folk Festival not only showcases great performers, but gives our audiences a chance to take part by playing along in open jam sessions, learn traditional dances, arts and crafts.
Please join us as we continue to celebrate the unique heritage and culture of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. Come out to our many events, sign up for our weekly newsletter, become a volunteer, a member or a financial supporter of our organization.
Keep in touch."
